First Round

#1 Duke vs. #16 North Dakota State/North Carolina Central: We do not know yet who Duke will play, but it is irrelevant because neither ND Condition nor NC Central possess Zion Williamson. Duke does. Select: Duke
#8 VCU vs. #9 UCF: As is the case with each 8/9 game, this one is a tough pick. UCF has Tacko Fall, and while I desperately want to watch him matchup against Zion, ” I believe VCU’s defense does sufficient to hold on in this one. Select: VCU
#5 Mississippi State vs. #12 Liberty: The Flames will give Mississippi State a game, but I don’t believe that they have enough to conquer Quinndary Witherspoon along with the Bulldogs. Select: Mississippi State
#4 Virginia Tech vs. #13 Saint Louis: The Hokies get Justin Robinson back following a toe injury that sidelined the star guard for the previous 12 matches of the season (including the ACC tournament). With Robinson back, VT is going to have the ability to move Nickeil Alexander-Walker back into more of a pure shot role than a distributor role. Select: Virginia Tech
#6 Maryland vs. #11 Belmont: Maryland is one of those Big Ten teams limping into the championship as they dropped three of their past four games played. Belmont will keep this 1 close, but can’t get their second NCAA tournament win. Pick: Maryland
#3 LSU vs. #14 YaleI really need to pick the Bulldogs. Like, really, really want to pick them. Miye Oni is a baller, and the Elis have the 10th greatest eFG% from the country. . .but, their defense isn’t fantastic. LSU still won’t have Will Wade on the sidelines, but I think the Tigers are simply too much in this one. Pick: LSU
#7 Louisville vs. #10 MinnesotaI mean, Louisville I guess? The most interesting thing about the game is that the committee put Richard Pitino contrary to Poppa Pitino’s old squad. Jordan Nwora is the real deal and a ton of fun to see, so. . .yeah. The Cards. Select: Louisville
#2 Michigan State vs. #15 Bradley: Michigan State without a doubt. Pick: Michigan State
Second Round
#1 Duke vs. #9 VCU: [checks rosters] Yep, Duke still has Zion Williamson. Pick: Duke
#4 Virginia Tech vs. #5 Mississippi State: Sticking with the Hokies moving to the Sweet 16. Kerry Blackshear has been great in the article and Ty Outlaw is among the best three point shooters in the nation at 46%. Select: Va Tech
#6 Maryland vs. #3 LSU: Battle of the bigs. I’m extremely here for this particular match. Maryland’s Jaylen Smith and Bruno Fernando are as good a frontcourt as any in the nation, and they’ll have their hands full with LSU’s Naz Reid. The Terps will not have sufficient outside shooting, so I am going with LSU to proceed at a close one. Pick: LSU
#2 Michigan State vs. #7 Louisville: The Cardinals somehow squeaked out an OT win over the Spartans back in late November, however I don’t believe that they get the season sweep. Ryan McMahon had 24 points in the triumph. MSU most likely won’t have Kyle Ahrens in the championship Because of an accident in the Big Ten title game, but the Spartans have sufficient with Cassius Winston, Nick Ward, and Matt McQuaid. Pick: Michigan State
Sweet Sixteen
#1 Duke vs. #4 Virginia Tech: Now things are getting interesting. Duke lost to Virginia Tech in Blacksburg in the regular season when Duke was Zion and VT was Robinson. The Hokies will make a match of this, but Duke’s superstars are down the stretch. Select: Duke
#2 Michigan State vs. #3 LSU: Thus much chalk. MSU requires this one in an extremely physical matchup. Pick: Michigan State
Elite Eight
#1 Duke vs. #2 Michigan State: Should we do not really get this game, I’ll be furious. Some were surprised MSU got stuck at the East Area with Duke as the Spartans could have reasonably been a No. 1 seed themselves. Instead, they have paired up with the No. 1 overall seed in the Blue Devils. MSU will create Duke pay for their mistakes, but Zion hits a match winner . Select: Duke
