Sweet 16 glimpse in the Twitter-verse

March, 22, 2010
Want an inside glimpse during the build up to Friday's South Region Sweet 16 matchup between the No. 3 Baylor Bears and the No. 10 Saint Mary's Gaels?

Log on to Twitter and follow Baylor forward Ekpe Udoh and his lively St. Mary's counterpart Omar Samhan.

Udoh is: The_Nightmare13; and Samhan is: OmarSamhan.

You won't likely find much trash-talking or strategy break downs going on, but you might get a glimpse into each's personality. Both are engaging young men, with Udoh being a bit less colorful than the 6-11 Samhan, who is averaging 21.5 points and 10.9 rebounds and eating up every bit of his shining moment.

Udoh and Samhan will be an intriguing individual matchup on the floor amid the bigger and equally interesting plotline of the respective teams' long-awaited run to glory.
