      I see UF v. UAR in the regional semi-final in the East.

        I'm looking at the team with the best guard play in the tourney and the best defense. That would be UVA and it's not even close. They will take UK apart. Arizona will be much more difficult but if their guards are hitting 3's and your team isn't....it's over. We can beat anybody if we play well but could get upset in the first game if they play like they did mid-season so who knows. I got UVA winning it all. They beat Duke at Duke. They beat Louisville when any other team in that position would have lost. They beat UNC twice and Clemson twice. Lost to WVU at their place and lost to Tech when they were shooting like 70% FG. They are damn difficult to deal with.

        Really intrigued by Houston’s chances to make a deep run. They’d have a tough road with possible Michigan and UNC road blocks, but they’re under seeded and very talented.

        Houston or Michigan can go deep imo. After finally doing all my brackets I can see a lot of upsets happening but most of it will be chalk after R1 imo

        Do you say UFL? No. So why on earth do you say UAL and UAR? It's the same thing and it's just as wrong.

        Toothless U rolling to an easy opening game victory.

        OK and RI in a pretty good game but RI maybe starting to pull ahead.

        Got one there so far - hopefully Davidson shocks KY. That meltdown would be epic.

          Davidson’s slow pace and ability to hit 3’s is going to bother UK. Not sure what they’ll be able to do defensively, though.

              Here is one of my posts edited to your tastes:

              Now perhaps you can figure it out for yourself or perhaps not.

              The SEC is 4-0 in the tourney so far. The PAC12 is 0-3.

              Ouch. Arizona.


              Can't find the tweet, but someone opined that Arizona just saved itself from having to vacate '17-18 tourney wins in the near future.

                This Providence-aTm game is awful.

                  bet they don't think the upcoming sanctions is worth having the big guy freshman anymore.

                  Calipari after the win vs Davidson, was asked about the performance of the team after Davidson tied it up or came within a point or 2. He responded, they are freshman they have never been in this situation before, but they responded well. Same tired excuse...they are freshman.

                      A 1-16 upset is much, much better.
