“Basketball doesn’t build character it reveals it.”

Thank goodness we can think about hoops tonight rather than listening to the soap opera known as Tim Tebow. And how sweet it is to be down to sixteen teams, eight of which play tonight. Because I am averaging an 85% successful prediction rate, it should translate in me correctly picking three (if not four) of the four. Are we ready?!


Syracuse vs. Wisconson: Syracuse has been lucky to reach this far and Badgers love to eat oranges, so let’s look for a mini-upset with: WISCONSIN

Ohio State vs. Cincinnati: I cannot root for a team that beat my boys from Florida State, so since I am FORCED to pick a team from Ohio, let it be: OHIO STATE


Michigan State vs. Louisville

If Louisville were playing the Miami Heat, I would still have to go with my ass-kicking, blood sucking Cardinals. It is my almost alma mater and my pick to be one of the last two standing in New Orleans: LOUISVILLE

Marquette vs. Florida: The golden eagles are going to give the gators’ fits and will play tough D against Florida’s penchant for three-point shooting. One team is on a mission and it is: MARQUETTE

It’s going to be a late night here on the East Coast, but it should be a dandy. Enjoy!

    So in my book, Mr B., you were 50% last night. Oh but I guess we can’t count Wisconsin/ Syracuse because the Big Orange got squeezed and we all know that OJ gets off.
