Not much comes from this site regarding college hoop, but if there was ever a time for it, it would be now.
We confess to only a passing interest in NCAA BAseketball, despite being in Connecticut, a state which has nothing else sports related with which to concern the folks.
Picks? Yeah, we got 'em. Accept them in the spirit in which they were made - on Thursday morning in a frantic effort to join some online pools. If form holds, this will be the year we win going away. On to the choices....
North Carolina over George Mason
Tennessee over Louisville
Winner: North Carolina
(Bold choice there, taking the 1 over the 2, eh?)
Vanderbilt over Kansas
Georgetown over Wisconsin
Memphis over Michigan State
Texas over Stanford
UCLA over Drake
Xavier over Duke
North Carolina over Georgetown
Texas over UCLA
Champion: North Carolina
Boring, safe, and predictable choices. We get the feeling we'll either win the whole thing or be out of the running by Sunday.
We'll keep you posted as events develop.
(Not to get too excited, but as of right now we're 7-0)
