Against Washington? Me too.

Kansas/Missouri/Pitt/UNC

I might change the Kansas one, that would be a HUGE upset over Louisville.

As I was just telling Crackerz, I like Missouri's balance and think they're in a good position to pull some upsets.

Oh and North Carolina only gets there if they channel their inner Bruce Bowen instead of their inner Monta Ellis on defense.

Im worried about Lawson for UNC. If he is not good to go, I dont think they will go far.

I actually think Lawson is fine. I think they sat him as a precaution because they didn't care if they won their tournament or not, they were getting a #1 seed regardless.

I do hope that they'll use him sparingly at least in the first round. There's no point in overexerting him against some team they could beat with their eyes closed (not saying they will, I just mean they should pull him early if they have a commanding lead).

I agree that Washington has the capability to make some noise, plus aside from UConn their road to the Elite 8 is a piece of cake. They'd have to beat Mississippi St. and either Northern Iowa or Purdue. They'd have to screw up to not beat those teams.

Cap,
youre Missouri pick is very interesting. they can sneak up on some teams in the tournament, they are very strong top to bottom. I have them going out against Memphis.

Yeah, they're definitely a gamble. I just like what they bring to the floor and I think they're less likely to get flustered by the tournament or the prestige of their opponent and make mistakes. I just see them as low- profile enough to be underestimated and good enough to capitalize on their opportunities.

If they start fouling Memphis as soon as the 2nd half starts, they may pull the upset.

I think UNC will be there so long as Ty Lawson is playing.
