I like Hopkins' chances. I think the bracket set up nicely for them, especially if Lehigh can beat UMD at home. I'd love to see Syracuse beat dook in the first round, leaving very little to impede Hopkins to the final.

I think the Loyola-UNC second round winner emerges from the other side.

Here are my (unprofessional) odds:

Hopkins 7:2
Loyola 4:1
dook 6:1
Notre Dame 10:1
UNC 10:1
Virginia 15:1
Maryland 15:1
Princeton 20:1
Syracuse 30:1
UMass 30:1
Lehigh 50:1
Yale 50:1
Colgate 100:1
Denver 100:1
Stony Brook 1000:1
Canisius: 1000:1

Oh, well. They pretty much ran clock after that. 19-9 final. Bring on Lehigh or Maryland!

Don't be surprised to see Maryland beat Hopkins. They match up very well with them, beat them already once, and are patient enough to win the game.

dook and Loyola aren't losing this week.

And I see ND handling UVA. UVA is a good offensive team, but Princeton proved they can be slowed down, and ND is a better defensive team than Princeton.

My revised odds:

dook 4:1
Loyola 4:1
Notre Dame 8:1
Hopkins 8:1
Maryland 12:1
Virginia 15:1
Denver 40:1
Colgate 40:1

What an ugly showing by Hopkins today, but outstanding performance by the Terps. Hopefully Loyola can win, which would put two MD teams in the Final Four, and potentially an all-MD Championship game.

Maryland played the game I expected them to, and Hopkins never stepped up their game at all. This was somewhat inevitable if Hopkins didn't significantly change their gameplan from the earlier meeting.

I can live with any of the remaining teams winning it all other than dook. If Colgate could do me a big favor today, I'd be greatly indebted.

So you think both UM and Loyola are going down on Saturday?

Ooh, my mistake! I had ND vs. dook in the semis. Need to revise those odds, too. Thanks!
