First Round

#1 Gonzaga vs. #16 Fairleigh Dickinson: Jahlil Jenkins and Darnell Edge were amazing at the First Four, however, the Zags have too good of an offense. Select: Gonzaga
#8 Syracuse vs. #9 Baylor: What’s that you say? Syracuse in the NCAA championship? Gotta go with the Orange. Select: Syracuse
#5 Marquette vs. #12 Murray State: I literally looked as the center eyes emoji when they announced this match. Ja Morant vs. Markus Howard. Superstar vs. Superstar. Could we keep whichever one loses and replace a few of those Pac-12 teams? No? Fine, let us go with the Racers since the Golden Eagles closed the season . Select: Murray State
#4 Florida State vs. #13 Vermont: FSU is very, very excellent. They ought to be a No. 3 seed. The Catamounts aren’t poor, but the duration and athleticism of the Seminoles will be a lot for them to overcome. Select: Florida State
#6 Buffalo vs. #11 St. John’s: Buffalo is under-seeded, in my estimation. The Bulls are No. 22 on KenPom, and also have the No. 19 offense and No. 29 defense. CJ Massinburg is a fictitious star, and that I believe the Bulls are too much for St. John’s. Select: Buffalo
#3 Texas Tech vs. #14 Northern Kentucky: DE-FENSE [CLAP CLAP] DE-FENSE [CLAP CLAP] The Red Raiders have the No. 1 defense AND Jarrett Culver. Their offense has struggled at times, but they will not have an issue with the Norse. Pick: Texas Tech
#7 Nevada vs. #10 Florida: KenPom has this as a pick’em (one stage Nevada win), and Vegas favors the Wolfpack by 2. Nevada is more prone to falling behind early and using drives and threes in the Martin twins to scale back in. The Gators have ended the season strong and appear to be peaking at the ideal time. Despite Jordan Caroline being among my favourite players, I think Florida gets this in a close one. Pick: Florida
#2 Michigan vs. #15 Montana: Michigan got a bad draw in having to play the same team they faced in the opening round last year. That Montana group was considerably better than this one, and the Wolverines rolled. They will roll. Select: Michigan
Second Round
#1 Gonzaga vs. #8 Syracuse: Syracuse against Gonzaga. No background there, right? In 2016, the Orange snuck by Gonzaga by three to make the Elite Eight in which they mad Virginia to create a Final Four. This year, the Zags get revenge. Select: Gonzaga
#5 Murray State vs. #4 Florida State: The Ja Morant Cinderella story ends here. Mfiondu Kabengele along with the Seminoles do just enough to slow down the Racers and proceed to the Sweet 16. Pick: Florida State
#3 Texas Tech vs. #6 Buffalo : UPSET PICK. BUFFALO TO THE SWEET 16. The Bulls have a difficult defense and will make things difficult enough for TTU to score that they move on. Pick: Buffalo
#2 Michigan vs. #10 Florida: I have noticed this particular bowl game before. Iggy Brazdeikis, Jordan Poole, Charles Matthews, and Jon Teske are simply too much to the Gators in this one. Pick: Michigan
Sweet Sixteen
#1 Gonzaga vs. #4 Florida State: Sticking with FSU’s span and their ability to interrupt the Zags on crime. The Seminoles don’t have the best offense, but they’re powerful enough to keep Gonzaga honest. This ought to be an wonderful game, so I hope we get to view it. Pick: Florida State
#2 Michigan vs. #6 Buffalo: After seeing the No. 1 defense in TTU, matters only let up slightly for Buffalo with Michigan’s No. 2 defense. It’s too much for the Bulls in back-to-back games and they run out of steam in the second half. Pick: Michigan
Elite Eight
#2 Michigan vs. #4 Florida State: Another fantastic game if we can get it. I enjoy Michigan’s defense as the big men inside can bang with the best of these. I really don’t trust FSU’s shooting enough for them to get sufficient on Michigan’s defense. Pick: Michigan
