Possible upsets to watch in first round – I love Long Beach St against New Mexico. Saint Louis and Memphis are both under seeded and St Louis can win this game. I also like Virginia to upset Florida.
Sweet 16 teams in my bracket – I have Michigan St taking on Long Beach St( That’s right, I went out on a limb). Marquette playing Missouri and in my mind that will be one of the best games of the tournament.
Players to watch – Draymond Green of Michigan St, Marcus Denmon and Kim English of Missouri, Darius Johnson-Odom and Jae Crowder of Marquette. Lesser known players that can take over a game… Casper Ware of Long Beach St, Mike Scott of Virginia, and Will Barton of Memphis.
My Final Four team – I took Marquette over Michigan St . Both teams have great coaching, big time players, and they are both battle tested. I’m just playing a hunch here and taking Marquette. I love the way this team plays basketball and there is always one team we don’t expect that gets there.
