    Re: 1st Round Matchups

    Saint Mary's vs Miami should be interesting, and of course, USC vs KSU

    Re: 1st Round Matchups

    I'm going to go with USC and Kansas State. Two teams from power conferences with marquee players. K-State is clearly good enough to run with anyone in the nation but they seem to have a problem of putting it all together when it counts, especially away from home. They've got the tools, just not sure they have the toolbox to compete with SoCal.

    Without a doubt...USC vs. K-State!


    43-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Re: 1st Round Matchups

    A lot of good matchups in the first round. USC vs K State, Purdue vs. Baylor, Clemson vs. Villanova, Mississippi State vs. Oregon, Marquette vs. Kentucky, West Virginia vs. Arizona.

    Re: 1st Round Matchups

    Clemson v. Villanova. Clemson played well in the ACC tourney but Nova always has a tough team

    Xavier v. GA. Georgia seems to be hot right now and how mad would you be if your team was a 3 seed and had to play them instead of a Western Kentucky type team?

    Can Tx A&M beat BYU? Who would you pick?

    I agree, Purdue vs Baylor and Marquette vs Kentucky should be interesting to watch.

    Oklahoma and St. Joe's. Let's see what Tasheed can do against the Sooners.

    Re: 1st Round Matchups

    Anyone bold enough to pick a 10 or lower seed in sweet 16??

    I like #10 Davidson over #7 Gonzaga and #2 Georgetown or #11 Kansas St over #6 USC and #3 Wisconsin.

    I actually picked both in my pool...

    That will be a good one. The ESPN crew was just speaking highly of St. Joe's thinking they could make some noise. They mentioned Tasheed as one of their stronger players.

    Re: 1st Round Matchups

    I personally think that Oklahoma was overseeded as a 6 seed. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see St. Joe's beat them.
