#3 Purdue over #15 St. Peters
The Peacocks have had an incredible run and deserve much respect.
#8 North Carolina over #4 UCLA
I love the Tar Hells’ grit following their near collapse against Baylor last weekend.
#1 Kansas over #4 Providence
I have not given the Friars any due this entire tournament. I have to hand it to them for proving me wrong. That said, I’m taking Kansas.
# 11 Iowa State over #10 Miami (Fla)
Ah, the classic 11 vs. 10 matchup. Actually, the potential for two lower seeds to be playing this deep is what makes this tournament so special.
