March Madness is upon us, and it has lived up to its name. After the Round of 64, not a single person in the world has a perfect bracket. With just about every upset you can think of, this March Madness has been an exciting one.
With Uconn beating Colorado, Hawaii beating California, Wichita St. beating Arizona, Yale beating Baylor, Northern Iowa beating Texas, Virginia Commonwealth beating Oregon St., Stephen F. Austin beating West Virginia, Little Rock beating Purdue, and Middle Tennessee upsetting potential champion Michigan St, this has been a March to remember.
With all of these upsets, no one knows what to expect next. This next weekend is the Sweet 16, and nearly all of the cinderella stories have been wiped off of the table. All four one seeds are still in, and Gonzaga, an 11 seed, is the lowest-ranked team remaining in the tournament. No team is safe now, with only 16 teams left it is anyone’s ball game.
If I had to choose one team at this point, I would choose Indiana. They have a really hard road to win, but with a win over Kentucky I think they have the momentum to do it. They will have to go though number one seed North Carolina to make it to the Elite Eight, but as we have seen before anything is possible.
Another team that has impressed me has been Oklahoma. They are a number two seed and have played very well. With star player Buddy Hield this team has a great chance of taking home a championship.
It is anyone’s game, a number one seed could go all the way or maybe Gonzaga will shock the nation and continue to dominate. We will soon find out who will win and take home the championship. Anything can happen in March so let the madness begin.
