Looking at the set brackets and my own few predictions, it is clear that I am no doctor of the science. Oh, I got the #1’s right, in the right order, even, but I went downhill from there.
Memphis? Where did that come from? Left field? I’m still not sure I see it. I also saw Florida State and North Carolina State getting in, the first as an 11, and the second as a 12 or 13.
Not bad, huh? I was rather disappointed when Sacred Heart lost their conference championship because I saw them as an excellent Cinderella. As it is, I think the glass slipper goes to Oral Roberts, Georgia Tech, or George Washington.
Sentimentally, I would like Duke to advance into the Sweet 16, but with the way they’ve been playing lately, plus their lack of depth, I doubt it. If I went with emotion, Carolina would be my choice to win the whole thing, but I just don’t see it.
My Final Four
|Kansas (though UCLA wouldn’t surprise me, nor, for that matter, would Southern Illinois)|
|I want to say Virginia here, though I can’t explain why. More likely would be Texas A&M|
The Championship Game will be Florida vs. Georgetown, and Georgetown, I think, will win. As for the Women’s Tournament, Duke all the way!
