East bracket predictions

March 17, 2009

1 Pittsburgh will beat 16 E. Tenn State

8 Oklahoma State vs 9 Tennessee could turn out to be one of the most intriguing first round matchups.  I am going with the Cowboys in this one, as they have been the hotter team of late.  

5 Florida State vs 12 Wisconsin- As much as I love Bo Ryan as a team, his team just doesn’t have enough talent to keep up with the extremely athletic Florida State Seminoles

4 Xavier vs 13 Portland State- As disappointed as Xavier was in not winning the A10 tournament, Sean Miller has had some success in recent tournaments, and with BJ Raymond leading the team anything is possible

6 UCLA vs 11 VCU-  I like the Bruins getting KOED in the first round here.  They have shown no consistency throughout the season, and VCU has an outstanding guard in Eric Maynor.  He will lead the way past Collison and Co.

3 Villanova vs 14 American- I love the Big East teams in this tournament, and that includes Villanova.  American has no shot in this one

7 Texas vs 10 Minnesota- Texas has looked good as of late as Dexter Pittman has finally decided to play to his size and potential.  Meanwhile, Tubby Smith has always had success in the tournament, but I think Texas prevails in this one in a great game.

2 Duke vs 15 Binghamton- As much as I can’t stand Duke, they are not losing this one.  Duke wins by 30 like they always do in first round games.


Back tomorrow with the other 2 regions
