NCAA Round 1 Picks

March 15, 2007 at 1:49 am 3 comments

Let me begin by saying that I know exactly nothing about college basketball. Jason knows all sorts of stuff. So maybe it wasn’t the best idea to suggest that we each pick tournament winners and whoever ends up with the most points wins. Loser takes winner to dinner. I was initially pushing for higher stakes (e.g., when I win, J has to buy me a furniture item of my choosing), but then realized I am going to be picking teams based on name only, and I really didn’t want to lose and have to spend $200 on the grill he’s been eyeing up (sorry, J).

So here are our round 1 picks:
(each game is worth 1 pt if the higher seed wins or the difference in seeds if the lower seed wins.)

JASON/JEN:
Midwest
Florida/Florida
Purdue/Purdue
Old Dominion/Butler
Maryland/Maryland
Winthrop/Notre Dame
Oregon/Oregon
UNLV/Georgia Tech
Wisconsin/Wisconsin
West
Kansas/Kansas
Villanova/Kentucky
Illinois/Virginia Tech
Southern Illinois/Southern Illinois
Duke/Duke
Pittsburgh/Pittsburgh
Gonzaga/Gonzaga
UCLA/UCLA
East
UNC/UNC
Marquette/Marquette
USC/USC
Texas/Texas
Vanderbuilt/Vanderbuilt
Washington State/Washington State
Boston College/Boston College
Georgetown/Georgetown
South
Ohio State/Ohio State
Xavier/BYU
Tennessee/Tennessee
Virginia/Albany
Louisville/Louisville
Texas A&M/Texas A&M
Nevada/Creighton
Memphis/Memphis

Let the games begin!

    um, you might have a typo…why did you both pick Duke?

    I only picked based on which was the lower seed, except for: Purdue (my sister went there), GA Tech (Georgia is closer to KY than Las Vegas), Gonzaga (it’s fun to say), Albany (not sure why I picked that one), and Creighton (my friend is going to school there currently). Don’t worry, Duke looses to UCLA in round 3.

    On second thought, totally should have picked VCU.
