Less than 24 hours until the Madness begins. (Yes, I excluded the First Four.) That means it’s crunch time for anyone who has yet to submit an NCAA tournament bracket in their pool.
Torn about your Final Four picks? I don’t blame you.
With Kyrie Irving potentially back playing for Duke, Georgetown getting Chris Wright back in the mix, Chris Singleton returning to Florida and Purdue suspending Kelsey Barlow, there’s a lot of last-minute action.
Here’s a small bit of help. I published five brackets from our writers yesterday, but can offer up another link of experts picks today.
Here’s the Final Four and champ from SI.com, CBSSports, Yahoo!, as well as Jeff Goodman and Mike DeCourcy. (I would include ESPN, but all I could find were their Final Four selections, no champs.)
The overwhelming choice was Ohio State. Eighteen of the 26 writers listed here picked the Buckeyes to win it all. Five selected Kansas. Three choose Duke.
It’s enough to make think Kentucky, Texas, Pitt or Notre Dame is actually going to win it.
