Games to Watch

  • 10-Oklahoma vs. 7-Rhode Island

This is a great game to start off the day. Trae Young will be a top pick in the NBA Draft and is exactly the type of player who was made for the NCAA Tournament. Rhode Island is more balanced and plays good defense. This should be a fun game to watch.

  • 11-Loyola-Chicago vs. 6-Miami

Miami is favored here but I fully expect that this is going to be a great game. Watch out if the Ramblers are hitting from three.

  • 12-Davidson vs. 5-Kentucky

Wildcats vs. Wildcats...always exciting. But this game should be incredibly entertaining. Kentucky has great athletes and Davidson gets over 40% of their points from behind the arc. There should be some action in this one.

Upset Alert

  • 14-Stephen F Austin vs. 3-Texas Tech

Watch out for the Lumberjacks here as they force a lot of turnovers and will turn up the pressure on Keenan Evans.
