MSNBC writer likes UConn and Ohio St. in this year's tourney
This year, my short list consists of Connecticut, Texas, Memphis, Ohio State and Villanova. OK, so five teams do not make for a terribly short list, but they all have a common denominator ó theyíre all great all-around teams without a true superstar. Thatís what won last year and Iím going with it this year.
If I had to narrow that list down, Iíd cut it to Ohio State and UConn, but donít ask me to pick a winner. If I can get a Final Four out of those five teams, Iíll win my pool no matter which wins the title. I may need to enter five times to do it, but I like my chances.
