March Madness Predictions- Midwest Region


Spectacular 64

Kansas over Lehigh
Northern Iowa over UNLV
Michigan State over New Mexico State
Maryland over Houston
Tennessee over San Diego State
Georgetown over Ohio
Georgia Tech over Oklahoma State
Ohio State over UC Santa Barbara

Analysis :

Pretty straightforward here. Northern Iowa's big men down low should be able to do the dirty work vs. UNLV, which I think will be just enough to get them the W. In the other upset pick, I like Georgia Tech over Oklahoma State. GT will be locked into stopping James Anderson, and I'm not sold that the Cowboys have the depth to overcome a bad game from him.

Tremendous 32

Kansas over Northern Iowa
Michigan State over Maryland
Georgetown over Tennessee
Ohio State over Georgia Tech

Analysis :

Kansas should have no problem with Northern Iowa, as they have a big man duo that can compete with the Panthers. I like Michigan State to edge out Maryland in a close one, just because I think Kalin Lucas and Raymar Morgan still have the edge from last season's championship game loss to North Carolina, and they will play their hearts out. Georgetown has too many weapons across the court and I don't see how Tennessee will stay with them. Georgia Tech can give them a run for their money, but Ohio State should squeak a win out here. Evan Turner should have a nice game vs. the Yellow Jackets, enough to give the Buckeyes the win.

Sweet 16

Kansas over Michigan State
Georgetown over Ohio State

Analysis :

Kalin Lucas and Sherron Collins should have a fun matchup here, but Kansas is just, simply put, better than Michigan State this season. Both Cole Aldrich and Marcus Morris will have to play solid a game here. If they do what they normally do and stay out of foul trouble, Michigan State won't put up enough points to beat the Jayhawks. On the other side, Evan Turner and the Buckeyes' ride comes to an end as they face a team with too many weapons. Greg Monroe has a good game down low and Chris Wright puts up around twenty in the Hoyas' win.

Elite 8

Kansas over Georgetown

Analysis :

Greg Monroe and Cole Aldrich will have a fun battle all day long, as will Sherron Collins and Chris Wright. At the end of the day, however, Kansas has a little too much depth for Georgetown to overcome. Look for more underrated players like Tyrel Reed and Markieff Morris to step up as the bench / non-stars really makes the difference in this game. I like Kansas to win this one, but it will be a close one no doubt.

Final Four Rep :

#1 Kansas Jayhawks

I called it first...

All four number one seeds made the Final Four, just as I predicted...

7/8 in the Elite 8 predictions (I picked Georgetown)
4/4 in the Final 4 predictions

Pretty darn good if I say so myself...

Go Jayhawks!

Anyone else call it?
