This will be Sideline Cancer’s 3rd game, while this will be Boeheim’s Army 2nd game. It could be difficult for Sideline Cancer to keep up to the Boeheim’s Army pace in this game, as Sideline Cancer could start to show signs of players losing energy a lot earlier in this contest.

I’m going to side with Boeheim’s Army, as it will be tough for the 22 seeded Sideline Cancer to win 3 games in a row.
