First Round

#1 North Carolina vs. #16 Iona: North Carolina and also Coby White easily move on. Pick: North Carolina
#8 Utah State vs. #9 Washington: [tests notes] Yep, Washington is still Pac-12. Pick: Utah State
#5 Auburn vs. #12 New Mexico State: Auburn is rolling following their SEC tournament name. Chuma Okeke is so much fun, and he leads the Tigers to a win. Pick: Auburn
#4 Kansas vs. #13 Northeastern: Kansas is. . .not good. However, they’re better than Northeastern. Jayhawks proceed. Select: Kansas
#6 Iowa State vs. #11 Ohio State: Ohio State is one of the bizarre teams that you have NO idea who is going to show up. Funny enough, so is Iowa State. The Cyclones are coming from a Big-12 name, and Marial Shayok is fantastic. Good enough for me. Pick: Iowa State
#3 Houston vs. #14 Georgia State: Houston will roll, but let’s remember when Ron Hunter dropped from his seat when his son his a match winner. Ron Hunter is great. Houston wins, however. Pick: Houston
#7 Wofford vs. #10 Seton Hall: Wofford is No. 19 on KenPom and obtained a 7-seed. Kansas is No. 20 on KenPom and got a 4-seed. The Terriers got a bad draw with having to confront Seton Hall, a group that ended the season with wins over Villanova and Marquette, but Wofford has a dude called Fletcher Magee who’s a flamethrower out of three. Select: Wofford
#2 Kentucky vs. #15 Abilene Christian: PJ Washington is reportedly in a walking boot, but that will not be sufficient for Abilene Christian to conquer Kentucky. Pick: Kentucky
Second Round
#1 North Carolina vs. #8 Utah State: I really like this game. UNC will win it with a late push, but the Aggies will hang out long enough to keep things interesting. Tar Heels move on. Select: North Carolina
#5 Auburn vs. #4 Kansas: Would Auburn shoot well enough to win two in a row? Yeah, probably. Additionally, Kansas is not good. Select: Auburn
#3 Houston vs. #6 Iowa State: Gimme the Cyclones in a late comeback to the win. Freshman Tyrese Haliburton and Sophomore Lindell Wigginton will have to have big games to overcome Houston’s defense. Pick: Iowa State
#2 Kentucky vs. #7 WoffordI thought for a lengthy time about my dude Fletcher Magee (can’t get over that name) knocking out Kentucky, however I can not pull the trigger. Should this happen, I’ll be so angry (but also okay with it Wofford). Select: Kentucky
Sweet Sixteen
#1 North Carolina vs. #5 Auburn: Auburn runs out of steam and can’t keep up with the back and on of North Carolina. Coby White and Cam Johnson go away for the Tar Heels, and Luke Maye gets a double-double. Pick: North Carolina
#2 Kentucky vs. #6 Iowa State: Kentucky’s span and depth is too much for the Cyclones. Tyler Herro gets sexy, and Reid Travis is a monster down low. Iowa State puts up a good fight, but falls short in the second half and loses from double-digits. Pick: Kentucky
Elite Eight
#1 North Carolina vs. #2 Kentucky: I know, more chalk. Kentucky gets revenge on Luke Maye’s game winner from two years ago, moving into the Final Four. Select: Kentucky
