#1 Duke against the team that wins the entry game. Duke won the ACC tournament and has been flying under the radar all year until now when they surprised and got the #1 seed. They advance easily here.
#2 Villanova takes on #15 Robert Morris - Villanova did struggle down the stretch in the Big East but a good seed in the big dance will give them a second life. They advance and move on to the next round with a convincing win over Robert Morris.
#3 Baylor takes on Sam Houston - Baylor is one of the hottest teams down the stretch and they have played well in pressure situations. This game should be a walk through for this team and Baylor will advance easily.
#4 Purdue takes on #13 Sienna - get ready to have your bracket busted. Purdue is a great team but not the same without Robbie Hummel. Siena is a very talented squad and Purdue will be the first big upset in the big dance. Sienna advances to the next round.
#5 Texas A&M takes on #12 Utah St - the biggest upset in the past of the tournament is when the 12 seed beats the 5 seed. It will happen again in the south bracket. Tai Wesley had a tough time in the title game with a broken nose but look for him to be ready for this game as Utah St advances to the next round.
#6 Notre Dame takes on #11 Old Dominion - Notre Dame learned a lot playing through injuries this year and because of that they will be able to adjust to the tournament. The inside and outside game of the Irish will help them advance to the next round.
#7 Richmond plays against #10 St. Mary’s - Richmond had a great effort against Temple just barely losing in the Atlantic 10 tournament. St. Mary’s put it together to beat Gonzaga but is still not getting the respect they deserve. A win here should get them respect as St. Mary’s moves on in the tournament.
#8 California takes on #9 Louisville - This game is most likely to be one of the closest games in the first round for the South bracket. The edge will go to Rick Pitino who always seems to get his teams deep in the tournament. Playing in Jacksonville will have to help!
#2 Villanova takes on #10 St. Mary’s - this game will be close and although I am tempted to pull the trigger on the upset I look for the guard play of Scottie Reynolds to be the difference. Villanova advances.
#3 Baylor takes on #6 Notre Dame - I like to ride the hot hand in the tournament and Baylor comes in on a high note. Notre Dame had a good run to finish the season too but Baylor gets to pay in Houston and that should move them along. Baylor advances.
#13 Sienna takes on #12 Utah St- just to get this part right in the bracket would mean that I have correctly picked two upsets already so I am happy. Sienna advances over Utah St.
#1 Duke plays #9 Louisville - Duke is over rated and they will now go against a team that beat the #1 team in the country twice. Louisville has the exact kind of game that can beat Duke and the Blue Devils have struggled in the Big East. This will be an upset and Louisville will move on.
The final four teams heading to the sweet sixteen from the south bracket will be Louisville, Baylor, Sienna, and Villanova. The south bracket is shaping up to be a surprising bracket but this is only a part of the puzzle! Good luck with your March Madness Brackets.
