Ohio State, San Diego State, Kansas, Pitt

I'm picking the upset in the West. Nolan Smith will probably get his, but Duke often shoots themselves out of games with their inconsistent three point shooting. San Diego State is athletic, well coached, and does a good job on the glass. They'll be my team for this tournament.

Outside of that, the other 3 #1 seeds will make it to the Final Four. I have the two powerhouses Ohio State and Kansas in the finals, Kansas winning in a close game.

Yeh, I have St. Johns in my Sweet 16, they'll take out BYU but Florida is going to be too much for them imo.

I have to do my bracket tomorrow.

As of right now, I am trying to decide which team I like more, Duke, Ohio State or UCONN. I really want to go with Kemba Walker and Connecticut and thats where I am leaning.

Like you would even know, and if we had them in our house we'd beat them easy. Neutral floor it's a toss up.

Have you watched them play this year? San Diego State is athletic, well coached, and is an excellent defensive team. They are very capable of making a run.

Duke is overrated, they are very capable of losing a game on their own because of their inconsistent three point shooting. And UConn will lose when Kemba has an off night, they are just not talented enough.

I'm taking a big gamble on my championship game prediction. In years past I always listen to the "experts" when filling out my bracket. What does that result in? Me always losing my pool and not winning any money. Last year everyone was pickin kansas, and of course they lost in the second round. This year, everyones favorite is Ohio state, but this year is just so different in the NCAA. Teams have been so sporadic. So i'm going with my gut here and picking Texas, ohio state, kansas, and pitt final four. I have texas and pitt advancing to the championship game with Texas winning it all. It's a risky strategy, but i'm banking on ohio state or kansas getting bounced early and pickin up some points lol

Kansas won't get beat in the first round. No #16 has never beat a #1, ever, and it will never happen. The gap is too large.

Also, it would be shocking if KU lost early in the tourney. They have size. The Morris twins are playing like a mini version of the Twin Towers right now. People had no idea who N. Iowa was last year, but they were one of the best defensive teams in the tournament, so they were no push-over. KU relied heavily on Collins, and he was trash (injured, but I don't believe that...).

Kansas also has that chip on their shoulder from last years early exit. They will be ready.
