Today has the potential for a few I think.
(12) Stephen F. Austin vs (4) UCLA - I'm less confident than I was about the Lumberjacks beating VCU, but I think there is a chance here. They got a little lucky with that 4-point play to tie the game with under 10 seconds left (seriously, if VCU just picks their nose for 10 seconds they are playing today), but they won't face the same kind of pressure today and shouldn't have a million turnovers again.
(8) Kentucky vs (1) Wichita State - Kentucky isn't what we thought they'd be at the start of the season but they are pretty talented and they will have no fear of the Shocker's and their undefeated record. I shouldn't be "shocked" to see a 1-seed go down here.
(6) Baylor vs (3) Creighton - Baylor is pretty talented with good size and athleticism, I don't think this is a good match-up for the Blue Jays.
Best Games to Watch
(8) Kentucky vs (1) Wichita State - not much more to say on this one but it should be a good game to watch. Wichita State is good, Kentucky is really talented. I'll be watching this one.
