I have Duke, Gonzaga, Boston College, and UConn. Final game being a rematch of the ACC championship (Duke/BC), with Duke barely winning again.

Duke, Memphis, UConn, and my dark horse to win it all... Florida :dunno:

I've had a few days to think things over and I've come up with this:

Duke: I know this isn't their deepest team in ages, but it's just too hard to bet against them.

Kansas: As hot as anyone in the country right now plus they are in a very winnable region.

UConn: Good inside/outside game and I think the loss to Syracuse really got thier attention.

Ohio State: Thad Matta is quickly becoming one of the best big game coaches around. I think the outside game will return and if that happens there aren't too many teams around that can beat the Buckeyes.

Like the Kansas pick. I couldn't get myself to have them beat Gonzaga. They seem like an elite/top team when I watched them. They've been really hot lately, so I wouldn't be surprised to see them win a bunch of tournament games, even though the experts don't have them going very far.

Going off virtually not following college hoops at all this year, I went with Duke, UConn, Villanova, and Pittsburgh. I went with Nova over Duke in the finals because I want a team with 4 guards in their starting lineup to win.

I went with Iowa, Connecticut, Ohio St, and UCLA.

UCLA has the most unfair homefield advantage in the tournament. A no 2 seed playing in San Diego to open and Oakland in the Sweet 16.:thumbdown

I actually think Kansas would have a relatively easy road to Indianapolis. There really aren't any teams in that bracket that scream "Final Four" to me. Memphis is not tournament tested. I think Gonzaga outside of Adam Morrison is overrated. UCLA is solid. My surprise pick for the Elite Eight is Indiana. They are going to be playing for the honor of Mike Davis which makes them very dangerous. I have a Kansas/Indiana regional final with Kansas prevailing.

Gonzaga has a pretty good center averages about 19 a game I think. I just like Morrison and his goofy 'stash.

I don't get the UCLA thing. Not seein' the high seed or advancing far in the tournament. Hmm... maybe I am blind? ;)

Actually, I changed my mind(not on the poll)

Syracuse, UConn, UCLA, and Florida.
