Expect “The Madness” in College Basketball
Imagine no less than 5 upsets in the Midwest Region. Hint: The winners will be made up of Senior-classmen at guard. Texas Southern could pull the shocker versus the Shockers.
Start with a 15-2 matchup and 2 other big upsets coming on Thursday.
1. North Dakota State Bisons over the Oklahoma Sooners.
2. Arizona State Sun Devils defeating the Texas Longhorns.
3. Manhattan will beat the spread over the defending champion Louisville Cardinals.
That is what makes March Madness 2014 special.
More fun upsets on Friday could be:
The hot Eastern Kentucky Colonels over the Kansas Jayhawks.
Texas Southern to surprise Wichita State.
The rolling Providence Friars beating the North Carolina Tar Heels.
Perhaps 3 upsets on Saturday and two more on Sunday.
Could a team from the state of Ohio (Dayton or Ohio State University) beat #3-ranked Syracuse in the Southern Regional?
On Saturday’s second round look for:
a) #2 Villanova to drop out of the tournament to the winner of the U. Conn – St. Joseph winner.
b) St. Louis Billikens to upset the defending champ Louisville or the Manhattan Jaspers.
In Sunday’s second round two #1 seeded teams will fall:
a) Kentucky Wildcats over the Wichita State Shockers.
b) Memphis – George Washington winner will be too much for Virginia.
66 schools will be reduced to 16 this weekend. Three of four top-seeded teams will escape to the “Sweet Sixteen.” Only one of the four will make it to the finals.
In summary, these upsets are very likely.
#15 beats #2: Eastern Kentucky Colonels (24-9) vs. Kansas Jayhawks (24-9)
#14 beats #3: Jaspers vs. Cardinals
#12 beats #5: North Dakota State vs. Oklahoma
#11 beats #6: Providence vs. UNC
#10 beats #7: ASU vs. Texas
#1 loses to #8: Kentucky beats undefeated Wichita State.
