I went 4-0 with my predictions yesterday so let's keep it going with tonight's games:
UCLA vs Gonzaga: Picking the Zags here because I legitimately think they're better and because I've consistently cheered against UCLA basketball for 20 years straight.
NC State vs Louisville: This is a bit trickier for me, but when in doubt I usually pick Rick Pitino, even if he does look near dead at times on the sideline. And what was up with that beard he was sporting earlier this year? I can't see Mike Anderson doing that.
Utah vs Duke: Going with Duke. They'll surely lose at some point but I don't think it will be here.
Michigan State vs Oklahoma: The Big 12 has suffered through a truly dreadful performance in the NCAA Tournament. I mean awful. Michigan State was underrated as a 7-seed and the Big 12 has been terrible. Also, I'm a Tom Izzo fan. Going with Sparty.
As like yesterday, this post will serve as a GameThread of sorts, so y'all have at it.
