3 more chances to be wrong
BELMONT (13) vs. Wisconsin (4) _ The Bruins can score against anybody. The Badgers can stop anybody. It’s just hard to get that 36-33 loss to Penn State out of your mind.
GONZAGA (11) vs. St. John’s (6) _ The Bulldogs flew well under the radar this season while the Red Storm were one of college basketball’s best stories. They do have 10 seniors, but none of them have ever played in an NCAA tournament game.
BYU (3) vs. Wofford (14) _ The loss of suspended forward Brandon Davies won’t bother the Cougars yet.
MICHIGAN STATE (10) vs. UCLA (7) _ It’s hard to pick against the Spartans, even after a season like this, as long as Tom Izzo is still in charge.
FLORIDA (2) vs. Cal-Santa Barbara (15) _ The Gators were considered a surprise as a No. 2 seed. They really aren’t.
PITTSBURGH (1) vs. Butler (8) _ The Panthers do have trouble scoring, but they have made some games miserable for teams that can’t get them into a running game.
KANSAS STATE (5) vs. Belmont (13) _ The Wildcats expected to get this far all along.
GONZAGA (11) vs. Brigham Young (3) _ The Bulldogs have a legitimate 7-footer in Robert Sacre, and the Cougars are sorely missing Davis.
FLORIDA (2) vs. Michigan State (10) _ The Gators’ backcourt of Kenny Boynton and Erving Walker should be too much to handle for the Spartans’ depleted guard corps.
PITTSBURGH (1) vs. Kansas State (5) _ This is one of those games where if you like defense and intensity, you’ll be in heaven.
FLORIDA (2) vs. Gonzaga (11) _ The Gators’ tougher season will help them get through this one; don’t be surprised if Chandler Parsons has his breakout tournament game.
PITTSBURGH (1) vs. Florida (2) _ The Panthers were close to the Final Four two years ago. Jamie Dixon and his wildly successful program finally move on.
