All right here are my predictions for today's games. Get to the comment section and post who you think will win

First Game: UNC vs Washington

With Washington being one of my Cinderella Stories for this years tourney I am going to take them winning this game. UNC has not been playing well at all recently. They barely squeaked by Miami and Clemson (OT) to get to the ACC Championship where they got crushed by the Blue Devils. They also barely beat Long Island after the game being close until the end of the second half.

I do not see them having that kind of luck against Washington and see them losing 70-63 with Isiah Thomas leading Washington to the Sweet 16

Second Game: Duke vs Michigan

I think that this will be another easy win for Duke where they will just try to get their flow with Lowry for the upcoming gamese. I do not think that Michigan has the star power or the experience that the Blue Devils have and I have a blow out with the score being 73-58.

Third Game: Ohio State vs George Mason

George Mason barely got passed their first round game and will go down pretty easily today. I think that they will fight hard but I think that OSU has to much talent to lose this game and will easily take care of George Mason 75-60.

Fourth Game: Texas vs Arizona

I think this will be one of the better games today but I have Texas pulling it out and barely saving their season. They have a ton of big man and a lot of depth unlike Arizona. They have 5 players that are in double digits and will be able to match up well with Arizona's best player Derrick Williams. I still see it coming down to the wire though with Texas pulling through 72-67.

Fifth Game: Purdue vs VCU

The 11th seeded VCU has had a good run beating Georgetown in a game that Georgetown should have won but instead got demolished. I am going to go with the huge upset of the day with VCU going past Purdue. Call me crazy but look how VCU has been playing of late. Winning their past 4 of 5 beating two ranked teams. Purdue on the other has lost 2 of their last 3 both against unranked teams and beating a bad St Peters team. I see VCU coming in here and keeping the came close until they finally pull away 65-58.

Sixth Game: The Orange vs Marquette

I think that this is another game where skill and experience will lead a team to victory and that is why I have the orange winning this game. They have a strong team yet again and have been playing well of late winning their last 7 of 8 and only losing in OT to a very good UConn team. I see the Orange playing well and building even more momentum for the Sweet 16 winning 69-53 in a easy win

Seventh Game: Kansas vs Illinois

All I really need to say is Illinois is not equivalent to the Butler Bulldogs and will not be upsetting the #1 seed Kansas. Kansas has a strong team and has won their last 9 and have gone 15 and 16 for the last 16 games. That is to hot for a Illinois team that have only beaten 3 ranked teams all season and all of which being the #24th seed at the time. Kansas wins 68-52

Eighth Game: Notre Dame vs Florida St

Notre Dame will obviously win this game IMO but here me out this will be closer then most expect it to be. Florida St has won their past 3 of 5 and have lost by 2 to a very good UNC team and 1 to a decent VA Tech team. They beat Texas A&M by 7 and will not back down easy from this tourney. I have Notre Dame winning the game 64-58 with a very good game played.

Another good blog from you. I like it.

My only differences would be GMU over OSU (rooting for upsets now that my bracket is shot) and Arizona over Texas. I just think Derrick Williams carries them to a win over the Longhorns.

Like I said, good blog though.

Wow you agree with my VCU pick and my Syracuse pick, lol. I think that OSU will win because I may just cry myself to sleep if they lose also Longhorns vs Wildcats was a toss up. We will have to wait and see

Whoops, I miss-read your VCU pick. I have Purdue in my finals, so I'm taking them over VCU. And of course I agree with Cuse winning!

OSU will probably win easily, but I just want GMU to win for the hell of it. But Texas-Arizona is close to a toss up indeed.

Can't you see it happening though?

I can, Purdue is shaky sometimes and VCU is on a tear.

Still going with the Boilermakers though.

It will be a good one, Washington is on a tear right now even with Thomas starting of shaky

Damn it, UNC wins in a close one but that was goal tending, I do not need to hear the it was not a three crap, that game should be heading into OT

The big winner - ACC. Big losers - Big (L)east and Big 10. Hype will only get you so far...
