IU, Miami, Louisville would be my 3 choices.

On another note, UCLA won't make it far at all. They've been really overrated since the beginning of the season.

How is Duke the overall 2 over Miami?

How is Florida still a 3 seed?

Other than that this tournament will be crazy. Every bracket outside the West is intense.

Prelim Final 4: Indiana, Louisville, Michigan, New Mexico.

I like Florida and Ohio State a lot too. I'm rooting for Miami though(Laranga coached my alma mater George Mason when they made the Final 4, so I'll always love him).
Eric Maynor is the worst basketball player I've ever seen.

I'll probably go with Indiana. They can play inside and out. Zellar is a prime time player and they have solid options on the wing. With that being said I wouldn't be surprised if some really random team won, it has been that kind of year.

Indiana plays down to the competition and any team with a good physical big men always beat them : Minnesota, Wisconsin, Ohio St

I say 1 of Louisville, Georgetown, Miami, Michigan (homer pick, freshmen need to wake up) will win

Sleepers Wisconsin, New Mexico, UNLV, UNC

I think if Indiana meets Miami in the Elite 8 they'll lose. I just don't see them winning that game, and I'm a homer.

If you are interested in the Butler vs Lamar season opener, you may want to know that Australian's Jackson Aldridge of Butler and Matt Hancock of Lamar are blogging every day up to and including a game day recap.

I'm an unashamed Aussie hoops fan!

I must say I'm relieved to see Aussie big man Angus Brandt @ OSU get through the pre-season in good shape in his return from ACL surgery. He had a good hit out today. Without him healthy, the Beavers would remain out of contention.

Poor floor spacing resulting in a bunch of ill advised shots from Kentucky. It's either that or they're taking quick threes, neither of which are a winning formula. Also I'm not sure what all the Randle hype is about, dude has been a non factor in this game. I want to see him be more aggressive next half.

Randle reminds me of a more rangy and athletic version of Z Bo. Really unorthodox games but they know how to finish in the paint.
