Wake Forest tonight

I think so too. Should be a solid game I bet. Still don't think MD winds Thursday unfortunately.

Just made my first bracket. Not finalized or sold on it yet. I don't have a 12 but I took 2 13s and 2 11s. Split the 7v10s and 8v9s. 

 

Feel like it wont be crazy with upsets early, but then be wide open from there.

 

Subject to change, but I went Duke, Louisville in the final. With Notre Dame and Kentucky also in the Final 4. 

 

UNC as the only 1 seed in the elite 8.

 

St. Mary's upsetting Arizona in R2 and making a run to the elite 8.

Nice win for MSM. They're going nuts up the road in Emmittsburg.

They are going to have one more tournament win than MD I fear. Crazy.

Don't quite get the strategy there at the end for UNO, but whatever. It worked out for the local guys.

Wake can't get the tie and/or grab the lead and when they can't, KSU is able to get a bucket to move it back to 4 or 5 points. Wake needs some stops.

And there is your problem.

Now, it's a 3 possession game.

So crucial to get stops.

I'm gong to assume Randall put more units on KSU than he did New Orleans
