Gonzaga only up by 4 at halftime. I have them in my final four, but would still be happy to see them lose, being an AZ fan.

It wont be close in 2nd half. There a 2ndhalf team . It shouldnt be at least.

Mostly the higher-seeded teams are winning. I was thinking there may be more upsets than there have been so far.

I'm at 68%. Games will be worth more each round, so things can and likely will change faster in the rankings Saturday and Sunday.

Yeah, it's so hard to pick the upsets (though I did think I had picked Middle Tennessee State) so I usually don't pick any higher seeds to lose earlier because if you miss it, and that higher seed wins a couple more games, it really messes up your bracket.

Apparently all these years I've been doing it wrong. The key is to watch not watch basically any college ball all year.

So Paul George is the reason Carmelo Anthony struggled on defense all these years...

And that's it for my bracket.

I should have figured it out...Badgers just take out Wildcats...after watching them take out AZ in the elite eight two consecutive years, and then the undefeated Kentucky team with Towns, WCS, Booker, Lyles, Ulis, etc, and now Nova.

True... I agree with Kamisky that the Badgers were criminally underrated with their 8th seed. Now that this happened, I'm rooting for the two Wildcat teams to face each other in the finals.
