    First Round

    #1 Gonzaga vs. #16 Fairleigh Dickinson: Jahlil Jenkins and Darnell Edge were amazing in the First Four, but the Zags have too good of an offense. Select: Gonzaga
    #8 Syracuse Baylor? Syracuse in the NCAA tournament? Gotta go with the Orange. Select: Syracuse
    #5 Marquette vs. #12 Murray StateI literally looked like the heart eyes emoji when they announced this game. Ja Morant vs. Markus Howard. Superstar vs. Superstar. Can we replace one of those Pac-12 teams and only keep whichever one loses? No? Fine, let us go together with the Racers since the regular season closed . Pick: Murray State
    #4 Florida State vs. #13 Vermont: FSU is very, very good. They should be a No. 3 seed. The Catamounts are not poor, but the Seminoles’ length and athleticism will probably be a lot for them to overcome. Pick: Florida State
    #6 Buffalo vs. #11 St. John’s: Buffalo is under-seeded, in my opinion. The Bulls are No. 22 on KenPom, and have the No. 19 offense and No. 29 defense. CJ Massinburg is a fictitious star, and that I believe the Bulls are just too much for St. John’s. Select: Buffalo
    #3 Texas Tech vs. #14 Northern Kentucky: DE-FENSE [CLAP CLAP] DE-FENSE [CLAP CLAP] The Red Raiders have the No. 1 defense AND Jarrett Culver. Their crime has struggled at times, but they will not have a problem with the Norse. Pick: Texas Tech
    #7 Nevada vs. #10 Florida: KenPom has this as a pick’em (one stage Nevada win), and Vegas favors the Wolfpack by 2. Nevada is prone to falling from early and utilizing drives and threes in the Martin twins to scale back in. The Gators have finished the season strong and appear to be peaking at the ideal time. Despite Jordan Caroline being among my favorite players, I believe Florida understands this in a near one. Select: Florida
    #2 Michigan vs. #15 Montana: Michigan got a bad attraction in needing to play the same team they faced in the opening round this past year. This Montana group was considerably better than that one, and the Wolverines rolled. They will roll. Select: Michigan
    Second Round
    #1 Gonzaga vs. #8 Syracuse: Syracuse against Gonzaga. No history , right? In 2016, the Orange snuck by Gonzaga by three to make the Elite Eight where they mad Virginia to create a Final Four. This season, the Zags get revenge. Select: Gonzaga
    #5 Murray State vs. #4 Florida State: The Ja Morant Cinderella story concludes. Mfiondu Kabengele and the Seminoles do just enough to slow down the Racers and proceed to the Sweet 16. Pick: Florida State
    #3 Texas Tech vs. #6 Buffalo : UPSET PICK. BUFFALO TO THE SWEET 16. The Bulls have a difficult defense and certainly will make things hard enough for TTU to score they proceed. Select: Buffalo
    #2 Michigan vs. #10 Florida: I’ve seen this bowl game before. Iggy Brazdeikis, Jordan Poole, Charles Matthews, and Jon Teske are simply too much to the Gators within this one. Pick: Michigan
    Sweet Sixteen
    #1 Gonzaga vs. #4 Florida State: Sticking with FSU’s span and their capacity to interrupt the Zags on crime. The Seminoles don’t have the best offense, but they’re strong enough to maintain Gonzaga honest. This ought to be an amazing game, so I hope we get to view it. Pick: Florida State
    #2 Michigan vs. #6 Buffalo: After seeing the No. 1 defense in TTU, matters only let up slightly for Buffalo using Michigan’s No. 2 defense. It’s too much for the Bulls in back-to-back games and they run out of steam in the second half. Pick: Michigan
    Elite Eight
    #2 Michigan vs. #4 Florida State: Another fantastic game if we can get it. I enjoy Michigan’s defense as the big men indoors can bang with the best of them. I don’t trust FSU’s shooting enough for them to get sufficient on Michigan’s defense. Select: Michigan
