March Madness Bracket Picks

While it is certainly true that I enjoy college basketball it is not until March Madness begins that I really get excited. If you are anything like me then you have already filled out at least five brackets; all in an effort to prove how much better you are then your friends.

With that being said, I thought it would be fun to publish my March Madness bracket picks. More specifically, this is my upset bracket where I take a lot of chances based on something I saw during the regular season or sheer intuition. I will, of course, skip the play in games and start my selections in Round 2.

To make this a bit easier to see, I will highlight my selections in green (the color of money). What’s more, I will break this article up by round to make it easier to review my performance once the games have been completed (see link at bottom to continue to the next round).

March Madness Bracket Picks – Round 2


Kentucky v Hampton
Cincinnati v Purdue
West Virginia v Buffalo
Maryland v Valparaiso
Butler v Texas
Notre Dame v Northeastern
Wichita St v Indiana
Kansas v New Mex St

Only real upset here is Texas over Butler.


Wisconsin v Coastal Carolina
Oregon v Oklahoma St
Arkansas v Wofford
North Carolina v Harvard
Xavier v Ole Miss
Baylor v Georgia St
VCU v Ohio St
Arizona v Texas So.

Having Harvard beat North Carolina is purely speculative. It could, obviously, come back to bite me.


Villanova v Lafayette
NC State v LSU
N. Iowa v Wyoming
Louisville v UC Irvine
Providence v Boise/Day
Oklahoma v Albany
Michigan St v Georgia
Virginia v Belmont

No upsets from the East in Round 2.


San Diego St v St John’s
Utah v SF Austin
Georgetown v E Wash
Iowa St v UAB
Iowa v Davidson
Gonzaga v No Dak St

Obviously the upsets here are SF Austin beating Utah and E. Washington beating Georgetown.

Once the first round has been completed, I will come back and review my overall performance. Additionally, for any games that I correctly predicted, I will continue in the next round. It should be fun to see how many games I can correctly predict over the next few weeks.
