    It appears no one has started a topic for this year yet.
    I am cheering for my Alma Mater
    UC Irvine Anteaters (25-5) Go ZOT!!!
    and also have soft spot for my home state
    and the South Dakota State JackRabbits (24-7)

    Big hurdle though is to still win their league tourneys
    otherwise they will be unlikely to get an at large invite to the big dance.

    The UCI Anteaters are arguably the best basketball team in California this year.
    I might be tempted to say best on the West Coast, except for Gonzaga.

    Some may say what about St.Mary's (BPI ranking is at 40)
    but UCIrvine beat St.Mary's this season.
    UCI is currently #95 BPI ranked.

    Both UCI AND So.Dakota State are currently projected at 14 seeds in Bracketology,
    If they both win out they might get to be a 13 seed.

    I don't really care who wins as long as KU loses.

    #4 3 months ago

    Sister Jean and the Loyola Ramblers!

    #5 3 months ago

    UVA BABY!

    #6 3 months ago

    Whomever plays Iowa in the second round.

    #8 3 months ago

    UNC or Duke

    #9 3 months ago

    My alma mater - Duke

    #10 3 months ago

    Duke!?! Pa-leeze!
    I'm sorry but the bandwagon is full.

    #11 3 months ago

    Don't have a favorite, so i'll be rooting for my squares & brackets!

    #12 3 months ago

    Because Pitt won’t be anywhere near the bracket, I am definitely rooting for Wofford and Buffalo. In the last several years, we have seen a lot of upsets and long runs in the tournament by Cinderellas. I hope one can take the whole thing.

    #13 3 months ago

    Boiler Up!

    #14 3 months ago

    yeah i am almost always for the underdog

    #15 3 months ago

    Syracuse and Buffalo

    #16 3 months ago

    FSU, 1987 alumni.

    #17 3 months ago

    UC Irvine is now 26-5
    and projected as a 13 seed.
    Still got to win their conference tourney though;
    otherwise it is being regulated to the NIT.

    #18 3 months ago

    Go Anteaters!

    #19 3 months ago

    #20 3 months ago

    UCI finished regular season 27&5,
    when/if they win the conference tourney they should be 30-5
    and a solid 13 seed, primed for the cinderella role.

    The Anteaters defence is pretty good
    in top 20 for least points allowed.

    #21 3 months ago

    Looks like the South Dakota State JackRabbits are not going to the big dance, as they were upset by the 8th seed in their Summit League Champ Tourney.
    Oh well always next year, hopefully they will do well in NIT.

    #22 3 months ago

    Gonzaga

    #23 3 months ago

    UC Irvine (28-5) won its first game in the conference tourney
    and held their opponent to only 44 points.

    one down two to go
    before their spot to the big dance is guaranteed.

    #24 3 months ago

    UCI is now 29-5. One more win and they are in! Go ZOT!

    #25 3 months ago

    Wow!
    Our Mn Golden Gophers are in the Big Ten semi's!
    Who woulda' thunk it?
    Took out Purdue to get there.
    Richard Pitino's got 'em playing right at just the right time.
    We shall see how they do today AND in the
    Big Dance.

    #26 3 months ago

    My anteaters clinched a spot Tonite by winning their conference tourney handly. Go UCIrvine. This is the year of Cinderella's.

    #27 3 months ago

    Kentucky! Go Cats!

    #28 3 months ago

    How about those Oregon Ducks?
    Pac 12 champs & in the big dance!!

    #29 3 months ago
    Quoted from dasvis:

    The Ducks will be my secondary cinderella team that i will be rooting for
    should the Anteaters (30-5) (Go ZOT)
    fall by the wayside.

    #30 3 months ago

    The four teams I follow got knocked out of their conf tourneys early on, so championship week was kind of a dud for me.
    * Univ of Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin Cajuns (went to school there, and currently live down here in S LA)
    * Indiana Univ Hoosiers (went to grad school at IU-NW regional campus)
    * Purdue Univ Boilermakers (I grew up there in W Lafayette, my Dad taught there, and my daughter graduated there in 2018)
    * LSU Tigers (great athletes and teams in many diff sports)

    Looking fwd to the big NCAA basketball tournament.
    I like seeing some of the smaller schools knock off the hot shots at the big schools.

    Clark Kellogg stated:
    "The Anteaters are in position to do
    some damage" in this year's tournament.
    We shall see!

    Glad the Golden Gophers got in.
    We don't get very many tickets to the big dance. Nice!

    #32 3 months ago

    Michigan State ... due for another run.

    #33 3 months ago

    My alma mater.... go Rams of Virginia Commonwealth University!!! Beat UCF in the first round and then on to Duke, easy squeezy!!!!

    #34 3 months ago

    UVA. And 3 (winner) and 9 (loser) in my square pool.

    Hoping Gardner Webb doesn't bust them out like UMBC last year?

    #36 3 months ago

    UVA over Duke.

    #37 3 months ago

    BUFFALO!!! GO BULLS!!!

    Oh yeah and Syracuse.

    #38 3 months ago
    Quoted from nascarrey:

    Yup. That was a bummer.

    Quoted from Chisox:

    Yup. That was a bummer.

    That game blew up all my brackets last year....but I guess that's what march madness is all about!

    #40 3 months ago

    Crap. I had Temple and PV A&M both making it to the Final 4 in my bracket. What a bummer.

    I did have a hard time deciding which teams to pick to win in the (4) 8-9 seed match-ups.

    #41 89 days ago

    Mn played a pretty good 1st half. Let's see if they can finish.

    #42 89 days ago

    Rooting for close games, upsets, and more beer!

    #43 89 days ago

    Wow! Golden Gophers quite possibly just played their most complete game of the season while defeating Louisville.
    Savor the victory boys!
    ...might be the
    only one you get...

    #44 89 days ago
