If you are a fan of fun college basketball (and by "fun," we of course mean "high-scoring"), you may want to root for Florida to beat Virginia in the Round of 64 on Friday (and, it goes without saying, Missouri to beat Norfolk State as well). The two best offenses in the region could each throw it in fifth gear in Omaha on Sunday. Missouri ranks first in overall offensive efficiency (according to Ken Pomeroy), second in Effective Field Goal Percentage and third in Turnover Rate. Florida ranks third, eighth and 14th in those same categories. Missouri has Marcus Denmon, Phil Pressey, Mike Dixon and Kim English. Florida has Kenny Boynton, Erving Walker, Bradley Beal and Erik Murphy. They play similar games -- lots of 3-pointers, lots of assists, lots of high-percentage inside shots; Missouri has been more successful in 2011-12, in part because their inside game is a little better and they draw fouls at a higher rate. But it could be "bombs away" if these two teams meet.
