We have come to the LAST day of the FIRST leg of March Madness and I am mentally EXHAUSTED. The games just do not STOP and I am becoming really POOR. Not that ANYONE cares about my bracket, I currently have a 21.3% ACCURACY rate in it, so NO ONE should listen to me. We CONTINUE to see crazy finishes during the tournament and we saw Loyola-Chicago continue their Cinderalla run yesterday with a last second WIN and Michigan advancing with a Buzzer Beater.
We still have EIGHT more games left to be played today, before we do this whole thing AGAIN next weekend. We get to see the CONTINUATION of UMBC being on an UNPRECENTED run, they are already the first SIXTEEN seed to make it to the Second Round, they can become the FIRST team to advance to the Sweet Sixteen with a WIN over Kansas State. We also see some Blue Bloods of College Basketball in action today like Michigan State and North Carolina, NEITHER team should have any difficulties winning their game today.
I only picked ONE upset yesterday and OFCOURSE I was wrong, my apologies to all the people of Rhode Island. I am going out on a limb and picking TWO upsets today, which means BOTH those teams will lose today, SORRY to those teams in advance.
Day 3 Recap-
7 Rhode Island vs 2 Duke: My Pick- 7 Rhode Island, Actual- 2 Duke
Overall record after THREE days of the Tournament- 3-3
Day 4 UPSETS-
10 Butler over 2 Purdue
16 UMBC over 9 Kansas State
I will have more picks for you on Thursday as the Sweet Sixteen gets started.
Enjoy the last batch of games from the FIRST weekend today!
