Though generally a fan of college basketball, I must admit that I have not watched a great deal of it this season. This dearth of amateur roundball may be due to the struggles and failures of my now-coachless team or it may be because I find myself more interested in the NBA now than ever before, but regardless of why, I have not closely followed this season. Despite my distinct lack of first-hand knowledge I have again participated in the same activity as millions of Americans, one that I myself have done for more than 20 years – filling out an NCAA Tournament bracket.
Though I never do particularly well, it is always fun to prognosticate and cheer on unknown underdogs to victory. I’m not going to print my entire bracket on this short blog entry, but I will tell you a few of my picks.
First Round Upsets:
Memphis (12) over Arizona (5)
Missouri (11) over Cincinnati (6)
Richmond (12) over Vanderbilt (5)
Gonzaga (11) over St. John’s (6)
What about you? Who did you pick?
