There are 3 more games complete and 3 more favorites (Memphis, Virginia, UNLV) advance. I guess other than leaving out Akron, the tournament selection committee did a good job this year.
I thought I would take a couple minutes and look over the brackets to see which upset picks (of today's remaining 13 games) are most popular among our group. I'm going to skip the 8-9 games as they are almost a toss-up.
The most popular upset by far is Winthrop (11) over Notre Dame (6), being picked by 12 of our 23 entries (Zorlod, my wife, BillyBalata, Puddy, chiefjay, Dunfee, Luke, Geist, gdogg, Markell, Keith, loaf)
Edit: Winthrop 74, Notre Dame 64
Next most popular is Long Beach (12) over Tennessee (5), as picked by 7 of us (Junkyard, timmypg, chiefjay, irish, Luke, CaP'N GRuNGe, gdogg)
Edit: Tennessee 121, Long Beach State 86
Creighton (10) over Nevada (7) was favored by 4 pickers (Junkyard, Keith, loaf, Meangreen92)
Edit: Nevada 77, Creighton 71
While 3 of you will be rooting for Illinois (12) over Virginia Tech (5) (Luke, Geist, gdogg).
Edit: Illinois 54, Virginia Tech 52
Two upsets were picked by 2 entries: Arkansas (12) over USC (5) (BillyBalata, Luke)
Edit: USC 77, Arkansas 60
and Holy Cross (13) over Southern Illinois (4) (chiefjay, irish).
Edit: Southern Illinois 61, Holy Cross 51
Finally, my son (Luke) will be the only one of us rooting for New Mexico (13) over Texas (4).
Edit: Texas 79, New Mexico 67
