NCAA Tournament Predictions:

Saturday, March 26, 2022:

Elite Eight:

South Regional:

#5 Houston over #2 Villanova

Villanova’s Jay Wright is battle tested, however, I absolutely love the way this Houston team defends. I’m looking for the Cougars to move on to their second consecutive Final Four.

West Regional:

#2 Duke over #4 Arkansas

I can’t get enough of Arkansas coach Eric Musselman’s giddy postgame interviews following a tournament win, however, I believe the Blue Devils are destined to get to the Final Fours in Coach K’s final attempt.

NCAA Tournament Predictions

March 25, 2022:

Sweet Sixteen:

East Regional:

#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.

Midwest Regional:

#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.

NCAA Tournament Predictions:

March 24, 2022:

Sweet Sixteen:

West Regional:

#1 Gonzaga over #4 Arkansas

The Zags are simply too strong.

#3 Texas Tech over #2 Duke

Coach K’s illustrious career comes to a close.

South Regional:

#2 Villanova over #11 Michigan

The Wolverines had a mini-renaissance in this NCAA tourney. The Wildcats are in no mood for a Cinderella.

#5 Houston over #1 Arizona

I love the Cougars’ balanced scoring and swarming defense.

North Carolina’s players locked arms and kicked in unison as the band played the school fight song in an otherwise-deflated McKale Center. The kick line broke apart, turning in a mosh pit of dancing, the small contingent of fans in power blue roaring in approval.
