    Looks like all lines are up now.

    Zags look decent.

    Tech all day against the Purdue chokers.

    Kentucky should handle KState. I just don't see how KState can hang, UK been on another level for few weeks now.

    Nova line seems short but don't see how they don't roll. Plenty of guards to handle the press, and I don't think WVU can hurt them all that much on the boards.

    Can Loyola keep winning?

    Duke -800....Duke wins easy. Don't sweat the points.
    Texas AM +145...TexasAM is better than Michigan. They'll win.
    Villanova -5...Villanova will blow out West Virginia
    Texas Tech +105....Purdue stinks without Haas. Tech will win.
    Nevada -145...Nevada has lot more talent than Loyola.


    Gonzaga/FSU, Kansas/Clemson, and KState/Kentucky can't figure them out

    Kentucky is a team that'll get their shit kicked in if they can't get to the rim. They're not that good of a shooting team, but they're just so big and athletic. IMO, if a team focuses on and can actually keep them out of the paint, Kentucky is in big trouble. Easier said than done though.

    I love the disrespect Michigan keeps getting. It's pretty much happened all year. If A&M gives U of M as many open looks as they did NC, you better believe Michigan is going to knock down a ton of those 3's. Michigan's defense can also be suffocating. U of M is the better team, and they'll show it.

    I think Michigan is a bad matchup for a&m. Michigan four and five play on the perimeter opening up driving lanes and open three point shots. Texas a&m size will be a disadvantage against Michigan.

    I think you’re completely wrong. Michigan has struggled against good bigs all season, and these are the best bigs they’re going to play. UofM lost 2/3 to Purdue, they let Bamba & Ostenkowski get theirs against Texas (still beat Texas tho), they got owned by Welsh down low and needed a crazy late game run and OT to beat UCLA at home.

    Their 2 losses versus Purdue were when Purdue was untouchable and they were by a total of 5 points. One which was gift wrapped by some poor officiating.

    KState barely beat a 16 seed. I honestly think Davidson and Buffalo are better teams. Even if Wade can play, I doubt he makes much of a difference against Kentucky.

    So what though? That’s only one game. That same team beat a Virginia squad that no one could beat all year.

    Kansas State was pretty solid this season. Every now and then they’d throw in a dud but for the most part they were formidable.

    KRIT you know everyone is going to take Kentucky for the exact reason you just said.

    Yeah I know, I'm a little worried cause I like a lot of favorites which I feel isn't good. You think Loyola can hang?

    Kentucky should handle KState. I just don't see how KState can hang, UK been on another level for few weeks now. I will not be backing K-state but I am waiting for Kentucky to show their true colors - we saw it all season long. They are young and have not been tested in tournament time yet.

    Nova line seems short but don't see how they don't roll. Plenty of guards to handle the press, and I don't think WVU can hurt them all that much on the boards. Nova is the best team in the tournament for sure... I will likely be laying chalk on this one

    UMBC could have beaten K-state they missed a bunch of open 3's in the 2nd half

    UMBC also lost to albany by 40

    i dont know what im saying but if i had a time machine id just go back a couple days and bet the ml on every dog. seems like every march madness this will work if you have the guts to stick to it

    Purdue chokes every season in the tourney. They did it against Butler this weekend, blew like an 8 point lead late in the game. Under two minutes I think they had three consecutive turnovers.

    I still think Davidson and Buffalo were good tests for them. If you watched, UK played really well which is why they were blowouts. KState is garbage, they went like 7 minutes without a field goal against UMBC. Not buying KState.

    Yeah the more I look at Nova the more I like them. Nothing about WVU should give them problems. Nova will run into trouble when they play a big team that can hurt them on the boards. WVU plays a bunch of guards along with Konate. I don't think the press will phase Nova at all.

    I pounded Kentucky and Kansas today. Think both of their opponents are trash. Clemson is without their best player and have played 2 shit teams. Wade will prob play for K State but will not be near 100%, if Kentucky brings any kind of intensity on D K State will struggle to score.

    Did you see the stat ESPN showed, Boeheim having 7 wins as a double-digit seed in NCAA tournament? The next 2-3 coaches on that list have 3 wins each... I'm rooting for the Orange to win but the two regular season games I just re-watched (losses to Duke and UVA) really make it hard to see how they could overcome the talented Duke team.

    Carter definitely has the best defensive hands by far out of any guard I've seen all year.

    I agree with that, but he won't be owning Brunson. Carter can only guard one guy, Nova has four guys who can hurt you from the perimeter.
