REGIONAL SEMIFINALS

DUKE (1) vs. Texas (4) _ The only time the Blue Devils lose is when they struggle from 3-point range. They should get some open looks against the Longhorns.

CONNECTICUT (3) vs. San Diego State (2) _ Kemba Walker can offset D.J. Gay, all those big defenders can slow down Kawhi Leonard and somebody besides BYU beats the Aztecs.

REGIONAL FINAL

CONNECTICUT (3) vs. Duke (1) _ The West regional has meant Final Four _ and two national championships _ success for the Huskies who can extend their defense enough to make shooting 3s tough on the Blue Devils.

SOUTHWEST REGIONAL

SECOND ROUND

KANSAS (1) vs. Boston University (16) _ It sounds cold, but the Morris twins might be able to win this one by themselves.

UNLV (8) vs. Illinois (9) _ The Runnin’ Rebels, the third team in the Mountain West race all season, should prevail in this matchup of two of Lon Kruger’s coaching stops.

RICHMOND (12) vs. Vanderbilt (5) _ It’s not a rule that there has to be at least one 5-12 upset, but the Spiders and solid guard Kevin Anderson are more than capable.

LOUISVILLE (4) vs. Morehead State (13) _ This all-commonwealth matchup should be decided by the Cardinals’ pressure defense.

USC (11) vs. Georgetown (6) _ The Hoyas missed injured point guard Chris Wright at the end of the season, and the Trojans can make them miss him even more.

PURDUE (3) vs. Saint Peter’s (14) _ The Boilermakers limped in with consecutive losses and they have too many options for the Peacocks, a good defensive team, to stop them all.

TEXAS A&M (7) vs. Florida State (10) _ The Seminoles are hoping to get Chris Singleton back after missing a month with an injury. He might not be enough.

NOTRE DAME (2) vs. Akron (15) _ It’s fair to say Akron’s chances at a major upset are zip.
