    Re: St. John's or Gonzaga

    I picked Gonzaga for two reasons - this game is a neutral site west of the Missouri River and it's at altitude, two things, which, IMO, tilt the advantage to Gonzaga. If this game were to take place in Kansas City or anywhere else east, I pick St. John's without hesitation. But I just don't think Denver will be a friendly place for St. John's.

    Losing DJ Kennedy to injury is really going to hurt St. Johns.

    Easy pick. St. Johns. They have been battle tested. They have beaten 2 of the #1 seeds and one of the #2 seeds. They finished 12-6 in the toughest conference.

    I would have taken St. Johns far is the tourney if it weren't for the loss of Kennedy. They wont last more than the second round without him.

    Gonzaga. Not really because they are better but because they are ******* GONZAGA. They just win in the tourney no matter who they play. Oh did I mention: ******* GONZAGA.

    I think Doc's post above yours is significant - glad I saw it before I made this pick

    "....Kennedy averages 10.4 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2 assists, and 1.8 steals per game. Kennedy had scored in double figures in his previous 7 games."

    Gonzaga is playing their best basketball of the season right now. St John's peaked a month ago.

    I'm going Gonzaga.

    Although St. John's seems to be the smart pick (team experience factor, big Big East wins) and it seems like such an obvious idea to pick Gonzaga (back in its original "upset" role) ... I somehow don't trust most 6's to go more than one round and I figure at least one 11 seed is going to advance at least one round --- that's my gut feeling.

    I also like Missouri over Cincy in the 11-6. I think that's more like an 8-9 matchup in disguise.

    What? Gonzaga hasn't done anything in the tournament for about a decade now.

    Exactly. This isn't the Gonzaga team of old. The last time I remember Gonzaga doing anything in the tournament is when they had a 17 point lead over UCLA and imploded down the stretch. It was kind of funny watching Adam Morrison crying like a little girl.
