Friday Night Sweet Sixteen

To be perfectly honest, I’m feeling very good about myself for going 4/4 last night. Sure, it was only four games and I picked all favorites, but it is still a good feeling. I did, however, feel very confident about all of those games while selecting them, and that confidence turned out to make sense…

Thursday Night Sweet 16

The first four games of the Sweet 16 are tonight and we will see which 4 teams will punch their ticket for the Elite Eight. With only one seed above a 4 in these regions, these games should be very competitive. Each of these games feature top-notch programs having good seasons and some of the…

South Region Analysis – Round of 32

In the wise words of Dennis Green, “They are who we thought they were.” This quote is in regards to Wichita State.

West Regional Analysis – Round of 32

Yale wins its first tournament game! Northern Iowa and VCU both pull “upsets” and the rest remained chalk. This bracket should be fun to watch, but my favorite match-up here is Duke-Yale. The battle of preppiness. Still, go Bulldogs. Players to watch in the second round: Grayson Allen (Duke), Buddy Hield (Oklahoma), DeAndre Bembry (Saint Joseph’s),…

Midwest Regional Analysis – Round of 32

East Region Analysis – Round of 32

Still, with Dunn and Bentil you can’t count them out against North Carolina.…

South Regional Analysis
