Duke, Kansas, Miami, and Gonzaga.

Strange enough though this year seems open for a lot of teams.

There's no clear strong favorites like the past years.

It is actually exciting for once.

Gonzaga struggled a lot with Southern...could've been quite an upset.

Kelly Olynyk looks like an interesting player...you don't often see a 7-footer with such a positioning and post skills.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

I had picked Davidson. Marquette survived by the skin of their teeth.

I had Oregon beating Ok State.

Got Minnesota beating UCLA tomorrow.

PS. Love Shabazz. He's dropping in the drafts right now. But Ben Howland has no idea how to use him. Some teams gonna get lucky with him in the lower lottery.

I was tempted to pick Harvard but I went with New Mexico, and them going to the Sweet 16 as well alm: These Ivy League schools usually play good fundamental basketball

Colorado-Illinois game is ridiculous...Illiinois goes on a 18-4 run the first half and wins it by 16 points....then has a 11 minute drought in the 2nd and Colorado goes on 23-2 run. still all open...

My bracket is solid so far minus the West Region where I had two sweet 16 teams knocked out already (Kansas St. and New Mexico). For sure after the next round it will end, but luckily by SDSU pick to the Sweet 16 looks good

Indiana was close to elimination vs Temple but managed to turn it around in the final minutes.

Kansas had a horrible first half vs NC scoring only 21 pts but rallied in the 2nd half to win by a comfortable margin.

Jeff Withey is one underrated player for sure.
