2011 NCAA Tournament: East Bracket Picks


2011 NCAA Tournament: East Bracket First Round



No. 1 Ohio State vs. No. 16 Texas-San Antonio
As good as Texas-San Antonio looked against Alabama State, they stand no chance against the Buckeyes.

2011 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 1 Ohio State


No. 8 George Mason vs. No. 9 Villanova
Villanova stinks. The Wildcats finished their season on a 2-7 slump. A similar thing happened last year, and they nearly lost to Robert Morris before falling to Saint Mary's.

George Mason has a better defense than Villanova. The Patriots have balanced scoring, great three-point shooting and a head coach who knows how to win in March.

2011 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 8 George Mason


No. 5 West Virginia vs. No. 12 Clemson
Aside from last year, Bob Huggins always struggles in the NCAA Tournament (11-11 record since 1997 with many great teams). The Mountaineers struggled on the road this year (5-6) and lost their opening conference tournament game. Plus, I think playing on Tuesday will help Clemson.

2011 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 12 Clemson


No. 4 Kentucky vs. No. 13 Princeton
Kentucky has a freshman point guard, but they have too much talent for Princeton. The Tigers have a poor defense that ranks 78th. Their offense is even worse than that (103rd).

2011 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 4 Kentucky


No. 6 Xavier vs. No. 11 Marquette
Xavier always gets to the Sweet 16. I'm not sure if that'll happen this year, but they should beat Marquette. The Golden Eagles have a pretty bad defense (71st) and have struggled to win on the road all year (4-7).

2011 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 6 Xavier


No. 3 Syracuse vs. No. 14 Indiana State
No. 14 Ohio beat No. 3 Georgetown last year. Can No. 14 Indiana State knock off another third-seeded Big East team? Nah.

2011 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 3 Syracuse


No. 7 Washington vs. No. 10 Georgia
I really like this Washington team. Lorenzo Romar is a great NCAA Tournament coach; he's taken the Huskies to the Sweet 16 three times. The Huskies have balanced scoring and an elite offense ranked ninth. Isaiah Thomas has shown us that he can hit a clutch shot.

2011 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 7 Washington


No. 2 North Carolina vs. No. 15 Long Island
Can Long Island get the North Carolina players drunk off Long Island Iced Teas? That's the only chance they have.

2011 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 2 North Carolina





2011 NCAA Tournament: East Bracket Second Round



No. 1 Ohio State vs. No. 8 George Mason
If you watched ESPN's Bracketology, you heard Jay Bilas say that Ohio State could "easily lose" to George Mason. I completely agree with that. George Mason's a fantastic team, but I'm not going to predict a No. 1 upset in the second round. Not a Buckeyes upset anyway. They're just way too talented (of course I said this last year in my Kansas-Northern Iowa matchup).

2011 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 1 Ohio State


No. 4 Kentucky vs. No. 12 Clemson
Kentucky just has too much talent to lose to UAB, Clemson and West Virginia. They're pretty fortunate to get this sort of a draw, despite their low seeding.

2011 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 4 Kentucky


No. 3 Syracuse vs. No. 6 Xavier
As I said before, Xavier always makes it to the Sweet 16. They also always won at least one conference tournament game, but that didn't happen this year. Syracuse is a really good team, both offensively and defensively. They've proven they can win on the road, and they have experience. Plus, I trust Jim Boeheim.

2011 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 3 Syracuse


No. 2 North Carolina vs. No. 7 Washington
Very tough call. This is a pretty even matchup, but I'm making this my big upset in the East bracket. North Carolina has great talent, but they're so young. I don't trust freshmen point guards even though Kendall Marshall is a terrific player. I'm a big fan of Washington, particularly Lorenzo Romar's coaching and Isaiah Thomas' point guard play.

2011 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 7 Washington





2011 NCAA Tournament: East Bracket Sweet 16



No. 1 Ohio State vs. No. 4 Kentucky
I actually like George Mason's chances against Ohio State better than Kentucky's chances against the Buckeyes. The Wildcats have too much youth, a freshman point guard and a poor road resume (4-7 outside of Lexington).

2011 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 1 Ohio State


No. 3 Syracuse vs. No. 7 Washington
Based on the odds alone, you'd have to take Syracuse in this matchup because there's a better chance that they make it here rather than Washington. The Orange Men don't really have any glaring weaknesses, so I'll be pretty surprised if they lose prior to the Elite Eight.

2011 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 3 Syracuse





2011 NCAA Tournament: East Bracket Elite Eight



No. 1 Ohio State vs. No. 3 Syracuse
The Buckeyes have a better offense (1st) than Syracuse (17th). They also have a superior defense (10th) compared to the Orange Men (16th). Ohio State had more conference blowouts (7) than Syracuse (4).

There is also a better chance the Buckeyes will make it to the Elite Eight. They're arguably the top team in the country, so it'll be an upset if they don't make it to the Final Four.

2011 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 1 Ohio State

Quotes Chimp evaluation graph isn't designed to be an authentic assessment of the companies which market motor insurance in your location. It is really an example simply. Don't use it to discover which business you ought to provide your organization to. Beyond so, it's important to see the relative evaluation quantities of the corporations re-a-vis each other may change from venue to venue. Because inc decide their terrains and also additional underwriting variables otherwise, the business this is the cheapest in a single region might not hold the best price in an alternate region. As a representation, Wawanesa, which had the best theoretical price in this instance in Alhambra, had the next-cheapest price dependent on a single theoretical scenario in Berkeley, Ca.

Discovering the correct quantity and forms of policy contract to purchase will be dependent on a number of variables which might be specific to each person. Prior to buying discuss these QuotesChimp at size together with the insurance provider consultant.

Many customers don't trouble to examine their coverages, depending rather on which the representative informs them or a succinct summation that might be provided from the insurance QuotesChimp. And let us encounter it: the writing of an insurance plan isn't precisely Eliminated Against the Wind (even though it might appear equally as extended).

The safety of peploe is more important than a basketball game between a North Carolina team and Indiana team in the middle of Kansas. If you must cry about the coverage cry and grow up! Thank you God for the information and coverage.

Like SDSU near home vs a young U Conn team ,getting a point is just a bonus with a solid 2 seed,also like VCU ,had FSU for 10 units in the first and second rounds but VCU can play defense with them and have the penetrators to cause their great defense trouble,plus 4 points is great in that matchup.GL ALL

Duke will not make the final four. There defense is really over rated, and they should have lost to Michigan. SD State will run them off the floor.
