March Madness predictions 2019: Virginia is going to win it all. East Region

First Round

#1 Duke vs. #16 North Dakota State/North Carolina Central: ” We don’t know yet who Duke is going to playwith, but it doesn’t matter because neither ND State nor NC Central possess Zion Williamson. Duke does. Pick: Duke #8 VCU vs. #9 UCF: As is true for every 8/9 match, this one is a tough pick. UCF has Tacko Fall, and while I desperately want to see him matchup against Zion, ” I think VCU’s defense does sufficient to continue in this one. Select: VCU #5 Mississippi State vs. #12 Liberty: The Flames will give Mississippi State a game, but I don’t believe they have enough to conquer Quinndary Witherspoon and the Bulldogs. Pick: Mississippi State #4 Virginia Tech vs. #13 Saint Louis: The Hokies get Justin Robinson back after a foot injury which sidelined the star guard for the last 12 games of the year (such as the ACC championship ). With Robinson back, VT will be able to move Nickeil Alexander-Walker back to more of a pure shooter role than a distributor function. Pick: Virginia Tech #6 Maryland vs. #11 Belmont: Maryland is among those Big Ten teams limping to the tournament as they dropped three of the past four games played. Belmont will continue to keep this 1 close, but can not get their second NCAA tournament win. Pick: Maryland #3 LSU vs. #14 Yale: I really need to decide on the Bulldogs. Like, really, really want to pick them. Miye Oni is a baller, and the Elis have the 10th best eFG% from the nation. . .but, their defense is not great. LSU still will not have Will Wade on the sidelines, but I think the Tigers are just too much in this one. Select: LSU #7 Louisville vs. #10 Minnesota: I mean, Louisville I figure? The most intriguing thing about this game is that the committee set Richard Pitino contrary to Poppa Pitino’s older squad. Jordan Nwora is the real deal and a whole lot of fun to see. . .yeah. The Cards. Pick: Louisville #2 Michigan State vs. #15 Bradley: Michigan State with no doubt. Pick: Michigan State Second Round #1 Duke vs. #9 VCU: [checks rosters] Yep, Duke still has Zion Williamson. Select: Duke #4 Virginia Tech vs. #5 Mississippi State: Dealing with the Hokies moving on to the Sweet 16. Kerry Blackshear has been great from the post and Ty Outlaw is among the best three point shooters in the country in 46%. Select: Va Tech #6 Maryland vs. #3 LSU: Battle of the bigs. I am extremely here for this game. Maryland’s Jaylen Smith and Bruno Fernando are as good a frontcourt as any in the country, and they will have their hands full with LSU’s Naz Reid. The Terps won’t have enough outside shooting, so I am going with LSU to move on in a near one. Select: LSU #2 Michigan State vs. #7 Louisville: The Cardinals somehow squeaked an OT win over the Spartans back in late November, but I do not think that they get the season sweep. Ryan McMahon had 24 points in the win. MSU probably will not have Kyle Ahrens in the tournament due to an injury in the Big Ten title game, but the Spartans have sufficient with Cassius Winston, Nick Ward, and Matt McQuaid. Pick: Michigan State Sweet Sixteen #1 Duke vs. #4 Virginia Tech: Now things are getting interesting. Duke lost to Virginia Tech in Blacksburg in the regular season when Duke was Zion and VT was Robinson. The Hokies will make a game of it, but Duke’s superstars are too much down the stretch. Select: Duke #2 Michigan State vs. #3 LSU: Thus much chalk. MSU takes this one in a very physical matchup. Select: Michigan State Elite Eight #1 Duke vs. #2 Michigan State: Should we do not really get this match, I will be furious. Some were amazed MSU got stuck in the East Region with Duke since the Spartans could have fairly been a No. 1 seed . Rather, they got matched up with the No. 1 overall seed in the Blue Devils. MSU will make Duke cover their mistakes, but Zion hits a match winner late.
