Portland State and 2008 Maipe Malbec

Portland State breakdown - Riding high on a six game winning streak going into the tournament, Portland State can hit threes and drag down rebounds. Sporting an impressive road winning streak during the regular season, Portland has every reason to go into the tournament with guns blazing. Xavier's admittedly subpar offense (as coach Sean Miller described it during the A-10 tournament) might open the door for Portland, but they'll have to be near perfect themselves when it counts...which is likely going to be the entire game.

2008 Maipe Malbec - Going in against Xavier's experience Portland will need all the energy they can muster. The Maipe Malbec is one of the first big red wines from 2008 to be released, and the fresh, vibrant fruit really gives it a leg up on its competition.
