Running down the NCAA tournament
Question of the Day
Every year there are high seeds that win games they’re not supposed to win and shatter brackets. Remember 13th-seeded Morehead State’s first-round takedown of No. 4 Louisville last year? Yeah, we’re still bitter about that, too.
Here’s a few potential opening-round upsets to consider.
Colorado State over Murray State, West Regional. The Racers, the sixth seed in the West, like to shoot the 3 and have Isaiah Canaan. The 11th-seeded Rams have seen teams and players like this before.
Virginia Commonwealth over Wichita State. The Rams were panned for getting into the NCAA Tournament last year, then went to the Final Four. Why not again?
Colorado over UNLV. The 11th seed in the South, the Buffaloes were a surprise winner at the Pac-12 tournament. The sixth-seeded Rebels have had some shaky moments and lost in the Mountain West semifinals to New Mexico after blowing a big lead.
Western Kentucky over Kentucky. Sorry, just checking to see if you’re still paying attention.
5-2 _ Odds for Kentucky to win the title, lowest by oddsmaker Mike Colbert of Cantor Gaming.
6-1 _ Odds for Ohio State to win the title, second-best despite being a No. 2 seed.
1-100 million trillion _ Odds of picking every game right by flipping a coin.
5 _ Teams from North Carolina in the NCAA tournament: North Carolina, Duke, N.C. State, UNC-Asheville, Davidson.
9 _ NCAA tournament bids by the Big East, most of any conference.
