I know I'm a little early but selection sundays commin up and by this weekend most the teams are pretty much set. Things should be interesting this year. So what are your predictions?

I think Pitt is going to win it all honestly, they've shown their dominance.
Or.. DUKE upset everyone and wins Championship. ;]

Yea Pitt is definitely in the final four I dont know if they will win it all yet. North Carolinas lookin good especially after todays win. UConn also but I think theyll get upset. We all know DUKE will choke as they do everyyear but maybe since theyre not ranked as high they wont. Theyre alot of dangerous teams like Michigan state and Marquette.

I dont know if anybody is watching but syracuse and uconn are about to go into a 5th overtime and this has been the game of the year in my opinion. Its gonna suck for the winner to have to play a game tomorrow and another saturday if they can win that.

Haha they won again tonight in overtime! I missed the 6 overtime game (Lakers game was on) but I'm definitely gonna watch out for the orangemen in the big dance now. We'll see how they rank when its over but these conference tournaments have been crazy so you can imagine how the rest of this months gonna be.

DUKE BABY!!

Duke put the hammer down on FSU, if they play like that all Tournament then they're definitely a threat.
Also, it looks like UNC is nothing w/out Lawson but he's coming back for the Tourney.

Selection Sunday at 7EST!

Who are your #1 seeds for the tourney?

I got UNC, UCONN, PITT, and Louisville.
I was thinking about giving it to Memphis instead of UCONN but their schedule strength is no where close to UCONN even if they are undefeated.

Those are some good picks. First, I guarantee Duke wont make it past the sweet 16...but I hope they do. but Im ready to see some upsets and who this years cinderella will be... no Davidson this timesmh. Its gonna be crazy trying to watch all these games, there's alot of good match ups this year.

I got louisville and state in the midwest finals. Memphis vs Uconn in the west. Texas and Pitt (if they dont get upset cause one #1 probably will) in the east and North carolina winning the south over Syracuse.

Good picks, I am too much of a DUKE fan and I put DUKE all the way, even though I have a big feeling they won't make it far.

MW Finals: Louisville vs. Michigan St.
W Finals: Mississippi St. vs. Missouri (I have a feeling UConn is going to get upset)
Memphis being upset by Maryland in round of 64.
E Finals: Pitt vs. DUKE
S Finals: UNC vs. Syracuse

Final 4--
Louisville vs. Michigan St.
DUKE vs. Syracuse

Finals--
DUKE vs. Louisville (67-63)

Yes I know its a long shot, but whatever. GO DUKE! HAHA
I see a lot of upsets.. A lot..

**I just bought a Jon Scheyer Jersey a few mins. ago! Hopefully it arrives before the tournament!!!

lol mississippi state isnt getting past the first round

They run 4 guards and are going against the best rebounding team in the country, which means they are going to have to shoot 60% to win the game. Fat chance. I can respect you trying to pick a low seed to go far, but go somewhere else with that pick.

I keep changing my bracket around but heres what i got so far

elite 8: Louiseville, mich st, uconn, memphis, oklahoma, nc, villanova, pitt

last years 4 number 1s in the final 4 got me nervous to pick against high seeds haha.

thats not necessarily true. just because they played a long game a week ago doesnt mean theyll still be tired come thursday

i usually do two brackets so here are my two.

First

Elite Eight: Louisville vs Mich St., Uconn vs Memphis, Pitt vs. Nova, UNC vs Oklahoma

Final Four: Louisville vs Memphis, Pitt vs UNC
Champ: UNC over louisville

Second

Elite Eight: Louisville vs Mich St., Wash vs. Memphis, Pitt vs Nova, UNC vs oklahoma

Final Four: Mich St vs Wash, Nova vs Oklahoma

Champ: Wash over Nova

thats almost exactly how i have it. I really like Louisville and Oklahoma. States a pretty dangerous team and if they get to the final four, they got the hometown advantage so anything can happen. Im still picking UNC to win it all.

and I agree, Syracuse is on a roll. They got the momentum behind them plus alot of hype from the past games and Devendorfs been amazing. They should be ready.

Duke dodged one. They're out for sure in the next round but all my picks have been advancing so far minus WVU. Michigan State and Kansas about to meet up now in the sweet16.

I hate how people hate on Villanova. I want them to take it all, if I could play point for any college team, it would be Villanova.
