Early thoughts? Either Delaware wins or Spartans make final four. Arizona loses to Oklahoma. Winner comes from south

Agreed. I am a bit biased but UK's bpi suggests a 3 seed. Anything lower than a 5 would've made me upset and I am livid.

I picked both. I think OK State is more likely, actually.

I picked Florida, MSU, Wisconsin and Louisville in the Final 4.

Picked MSU vs Louisville.

Louisville winning it all.

The fact that Ohio State, which I support as you know, got a higher seed than UK is crazy. UK certainly can do big things. I am picking them to beat Wichita.

Gonzaga is 5-0 all time vs. Oklahoma State. Also beat them last year in Stillwater. Just throwing that out there.

My Tulsa boys got a tough matchup vs. UCLA. 20th anniversary of the upset that started it all for my team. I don't think history repeats itself this year as I think Kyle Anderson and Jordan Adams are matchup nightmares for Tulsa.

I'm a bit surprised that Providence is above Xavier. If the Johnnies could've beaten both of them, they would be in no doubt!

I can't stand watching them personally. They are what I call a video game team, all they do is chuck 3s. McDermott is a great player, but I was praying for them to be matched up with a physical team in the round of 32. Didn't happen. They will get to Sweet 16 easily.

Why? You really got a 4/5 seed. You play the worst at large team, one with zero top 100 road/neutral wins. Then you play a team that you should beat in round 2/3. Sweet 16 vs Louisville will be tough as would Michigan/Duke winner in Elite 8.

Kentucky - Louisville would be a good sweet 16 game.

West region is weak, especially the top half with Oklahoma, NDST, SDST, and NM St. No idea who to pick to go the sweet sixteen there.

As an Arizona fan, I'm most worried about OK State than any other team in the region, get past them and we make the FF

ticked about two things-

1- How the hell did the big 10 get two 2 seeds
2- Green Bay shouldve made it

Kentucky certainly can beat Wichita State, I have no doubt about that. What upsets me is that quite possibly the 2 most grossly under seeded teams in the tourney (L'ville and UK) end up in the same region, just 2 wins apart from playing one another in the round of 16.. Something about that just screams "ticket sales" to me. Also a potential elite 8 matchup with Duke.. Very fishy.

I see a lot of msu picks for the final 4, gotta get thru UVA first

Hoping for a great tourney!

Still can't believe how low Louisville was seeded. I can honestly see them repeating.
