Pitt stinks on defense with a legit post player and Federiko out. Xavier can’t miss but Kunkel has been left open.

Only hope is Xavier is now at the baskets where basically every team every game here has struggled more from the outside.

Xavier vs Texas could be damn fun

Nowell for K State is on an absolute tear right now.

Lol the meaningless 3 at the buzzer kept Gonzaga from covering

I’m fairness, the bad beat was the play before when TCU fouled down 4 with 1 second left. Gonzaga covering would’ve actually been the bad beat.

Kind of bummed it can’t be FAU and Princeton in the championship.

Is it me or is the one side WAAAAAY tougher with what’s left? I’m sure you’ll disagree and maybe greatly with my rankings of teams left….but I don’t see how the two side are even with what’s left.

1. Alabama 

2. Texas

3. Houston

4. UCLA

5. UConn 

6. Kansas St

7. Gonzaga

8. Xavier

9. Tennessee

10. SD State

11. Miami

12. Arkansas 

13. Michigan St

14. Creighton

15. Florida Atlantic

16. Princeton


Bama vs Texas 

Houston vs Kansas St

UCLA vs Tennessee 

UConn vs SD St

Gonzaga vs Michigan St

Xavier vs Creighton

Miami vs Florida Atlantic 

Arkansas vs Princeton


Betting lines would be interesting but I’d guess 6/8 or 7/8 would be with the right side of the bracket

I mean, that's what upsets do. Creates some unbalance and chaos. Not really anything or anyone can do about that.

As far as rankings go, I think Tennessee and Creighton are legit teams. Tennessee is the favorite to come out of the East. I'd probably have them in top 5 or 6.

Creighton has some dudes. All 5 starters capable of getting 20 points on a given night.

I was going to say rankings wise pretty good except I would move Tennessee up

South…Bama a big favorite and you guys saying Creighton next?

East….Tenn/KSU co favorites or Tenn the favorite?

Midwest…Houston/Texas co favorites?

West….UCLA/UConn/Gonzaga? 


Who in the not listed teams of this post are the most dangerous to the teams I did list?

South is correct

East I think Tennessee is clear favorite. Odds makers actually have MSU then K-State at 2 and 3.

MW is Houston by itself...a big gap then Texas...big gap then XAV/MIA

West pick one between UCLA, UCONN, Zaga. All playing really well. Zaga, UCONN have stupid efficient offenses. UCLA is really good defensively.

Some of this because the Big 12 hasn’t performed as expected in the tourney and Vegas is thinking the Big 12 was overrated?

#1 Kansas loses to a #8

#3 Baylor loses to #6…and Creighton just controlled the game

#6 iowa St got demolished by #11 Pitt who then were completely controlled by Xavier 

WVU didn’t win their matchup

TCU did as expected
