First Round

#1 Virginia vs. #16 Gardner-Webb: THIS Isn’t REMOTELY AN EXCITING? MOVE ON LET’S JUST NOT TALK ABOUT IT. WHAT COULD GO WRONG? Pick: Virginia
#8 Ole Miss vs. #9 Oklahoma: [long pause] Umm, Ole Miss? Select: Ole Miss
#5 Wisconsin vs. #12 Oregon: I refuse to pick a Pac-12 group, and Oregon’s greatest win of the season was against Syracuse on a neutral court. Their defense is good, but the offense is not. That won’t be enough to get it done against Wisconsin. Pick: Wisconsin
#4 Kansas State vs. #13 UC Irvine: This is the bad combo of a sexy double-digit seed meeting a Power 5 college with injuries. The Anteaters beat up on the Big West Conference, winning both the regular season and conference championship titles. K-State won’t possess Barry Brown, meaning they’ll need to compensate for his scoring and game direction somewhere. Oh, and UC Irvine includes a dude named Max Hazzard. MAX HAZZARD!!! Pick: UC Irvine
#6 Villanova vs. #11 Saint Mary’s: The Wildcats are nowhere near the team they were last year after they won the championship, but they could still shoot threes fairly well and shouldn’t have any difficulties with St. Mary’s. It is going to be close, though. Select: Villanova
#3 Purdue vs. #14 Old Dominion: LET’S GET CRAZY. Old Dominion over Purdue later Carsen Edwards includes a quiet day, while BJ Stith and Ahmad Caver go OFF. Pick: Old Dominion
#7 Cincinnati vs. #10 Iowa: This really is actually the yelling coach game as Fran McCaffrey and Mick Cronin are known for their. . .fiery characters on the sidelines. Iowa has been leaking every type of fluid down the stretch and are limping to the championship. Cincinnati takes it at a bodily, gritty game. Select: Cincinnati
#2 Tennessee vs. #15 Colgate: Colgate has as much chance here as a real tube of toothpaste. The Volunteers are big, physical, and Tennessee moves easily. Select: Tennessee
Second Round
#1 Virginia vs. #9 Ole Miss: The Cavaliers are overly much on both defense and offense since they’re the only team in the country from the top-5 in both on KenPom. Select: Virginia
#5 Wisconsin vs. #13 UC Irvine: Wisconsin’s exterior shooting goes cold and UC Irvine’s run in the postseason persists. Am I just picking this since literally nobody wishes to see Virginia-Wisconsin from the Sweet 16? Maybe. Select: UC Irvine
#12 Old Dominion vs. #6 Villanova: Cinderella’s ball is cut brief. Nova shoots ODU out of the gym. Pick: Villanova
#7 Cincinnati vs. #1 Tennessee: CINCY VS TENNY IN COLUMBUS. Ok, fine, I won’t call them”Tenny” again. This one is really a brutal conflict, but Tennessee squeaks one out late as a result of a big play from Jordan Bone. Select: Tennessee
Sweet Sixteen
#1 Virginia vs. #13 UC Irvine: The Cavaliers have construction confidence as they cruise into the Elite Eight. De’Andre Hunter, Ty Jerome, and Kyle Guy are a lot for the Anteaters, moving them one win away from the promise land. Select: Virginia
#6 Villanova vs. #2 Tennessee: Another match which I desperately want to see. Finesse vs. braun. Villanova slows down things and gets warm from outside as Paschall has a major day in the paint. Pick: Villanova
Elite Eight
#1 Virginia vs. #6 Villanova: Villanova is worn out after a tough match with Tennesee and can not figure out the Pack Line shield. It is going to be close through the first half, however the Hoos pull away down the stretch. Select: Virginia
