IT’S MY FAVORITE TIME OF YEAR AGAIN!!!!!
Here are my first round picks for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament! I stayed up all night last night going over all of the teams stats and comparing them to each other to make this list and my brain is still hurting from it all! I entered my boyfriend’s work’s bracket challenge and ESPN’s bracket challenge so fingers crossed lol!
My hardest picks to choose for this round were UCONN vs Colorado, California vs Hawaii, USC vs Providence, Kentucky vs Stoney Brook, Baylor vs Yale, and Seton Hall vs Gonzago!
I think I interchanged those choices probably a thousand times and I picked Kentucky over Stoney Brook because I am a Big Blue fan for life even though I do think Stoney Brook will take it. I can’t be too much of a traitor lol!
My first round upset winner predictions are Hawaii, SF Austin, Pittsburgh, Yale, Northern Iowa, VCU, Butler, and Gonzaga.
My overall tournament predictions are North Carolina will fall short of the Final Four by an upset from Indiana but in my bracket I gave them my faith and put them in the Final Four. I also think if Kentucky makes it to the second round Indiana will beat them because of their amazing 3 pt. percentages! I am loving Oklahoma stats as well this year but more than likely they will not win against Kansas!
Over all I have Oklahoma, Kansas, North Carolina, and Michigan St. in the Final Four with Kansas and Michigan St. in the finals…Kansas taking it home!
