It seems every American poster on this website has their own team in the NCAA. Im wondering who you will be routing for and maybe a couple teams you will be hoping to see succeed. Alot of the posters on this site like me were born outside of the U.S.A. Do you guys have any favourites, sleepers, or teams you wanna see succeed as well. I wanna see some team pride!
1.Texas- First and foremost this is my team. Cant beat the two GTA, Findlay Prep Champons, Corey Joseph and Tristan Thompson. Aside from tat Jordan Hamilton has always been a favourite of mine, and I thoink alot of people beat up on Coach Barnes for no reason just because people heard someone else critisize him, like Bosh, and James.
2.Gonzaga-Another team stacked with Canadian players and expecting more recruits next year. I think Robert Sacre has a chance to validate himself as a 2nd round pick in this tourney. Gonzaga is playing in perhaps the weakest division, and the teams they are expecting to go up against will have a very hard time dealing with Sacre, Gray, and Harris if they play poised.
3.Purdue-Purdue to me is being underrated by alot of people, they have amazing talent on this team and are legit threats to win it all. Moore an Johnson are perhapps the best duo in college basketball. I remember at the beggining of the year everyone was very high on Purdue, that has seemed to cool down yet they lived up to expectations. I expect them to make a eep run.
4.Syracuse-I love Jim Bohiems approach to the game. His team is always underrated, and always overachieves due to the professional attitude he instills in his players. Hopefully Kris Joseph has a better tournament then his overall dissapointing season. Syracuse could very well make it to the elite eight if they play up to potenial.
5-Morehead State- Its tournament time and Ive got Faried fever! Morehead has a dominant star which not many teams have in this tournament. Just like one star can lose you games, one star can win you games and I expect Faried to have some of the best ames of his NCAA Career.
BYU - I am from Utah and Jimmer Fredette is my favorite college player, but I don't think BYU can get very far the farthest I seem them going is the sweet 16.
Connecticut - I love what Kemba Walker is doing and I really believe that Connecticut has a chance to make it to the final four this year, they have the team to do it.
Kentucky - An underrated team only got a four seed and I think they should have gotten atleast a three seed or maybe a two seed, another player I like is Terrence Jones. They have a chance to get to the elite eight and possibly the final four.
1. MSU-Im from michigan
2. Oakland-From michigan
3. Texas-i think there seeding is a little unfair, and i like to watch em play... there my dark house to win it all
Wisconsin and Marquette all the way. Bo Ryan is too good of a coach not to make it to the final 4 in his career. Just Please dont lose to another midmajor!! They definitely have Final Four potential seeing how weak their region is. I love how Marquette plays now under Buzz with their guard play and undersized big men, especially Butler and Crowder. Theyve been in almost every game this year but have blown a lot of leads late. Xaviers tough but theyve beaten teams better than them and theyve already beat Syra, their would-be "3rd round" matchup.
Other than those 2 I want to see Texas, BYU and Purdue play well.
i want to see villanova. i think they could be a team that makes a run. if they beat george mason, they have some bodies to throw at sullinger(pena and yarou) and there is no doubt they have some of the best guards in the country. they are well rested and could have a chip on their shoulder after everyone counting them out because of a bad finish.
Damn I thoyught Peachtree TV was owned by TBS because it replaced TBS in Canada. Looks like Im gonna be missing Lousivill vs Morehead.
Since i live in utah now ill probably cheer for BYU.
Also Kentucky, texas, ohio st, Gtown
Syracuse and George Mason!
My Dad is from Syracuse so they are my main team, and I live about 5 minutes away from George Mason so they are my other team haha.
but realistic champions calibur team I'm rooting for Kentucky, UCONN, and UNC
I'm from Memphis and going to the University of Memphis next year.
oh yeah and UNC, Utah st
