Who do you think can make a Cinderella run this year?

I have
Southern Illinois beating West Virginia
Kansas to the elite 8(beat Bradley, beat Pittsburg, beat Memphis, loss to Gonzaga)
San Diego States beat Indiana first round
UAB over Kentucky
Wichita States to the Sweet 16(beat Seton Hall, Tennessee, loss to NC)
Boston College to the final 4(over Pacific, Nevada, Villanova and Florida)

Semis and final
Duke over Gonzaga
NC over Boston College

Duke over NC

Milwaukee-Wisconsin, SDSU, N.C. State could all surprise.

I can't say that I agree with Gonzaga. They have one good player, and they barely won their conference. I have them as my upset pick, losing in the first round to Xavier...

jp batista has a solid post game. but after morrison and batista, gonzaga is pretty thin.


but anyways,
i wouldn't be surprised to see texas beat duke in the elite 8
georgetown makes the elite 8
msu over unc in the second round

remember a 12 seed always beats a 5 seed. i have texas a&m beating 'cuse.

boston college/duke in the final game....duke wins

NOTE: some, if not all, of these predicitions are subject to change within the next 3 days. :-D

Dude, great pick with BC!

Honestly...it could happen, here is how.

BC in sweet 16 v. Nova...BC asserts themselves physically and wins, then they take care of business in the elite 8. UNC upsets UConn...and BC for the 3rd time beats the heels.

There you go!!!

And if we face Duke again...we WILL win. I am very confident. We got closer the 2nd time around and it was an away game.

BC has what it takes...they may need a break or 2, but they can do it!

hey king, I like Texas A&M too. They aren't exactly playing the best number 5 seed and possibly number 4 seed out there and they got a good shot at going to the sweet 16. The aggies aren't bad this year.

And for the 238109723150.3426th year in a row people are overrating Gonzaga so much saying they should be higher than 3. Who did they play? Only top 25 team they played was Michigan St. at the beginning of the year and they lost too them(I'm pretty sure). Besides that they've accomplished nothing besides beating crappy schools like Pepperdine. UCLA will destroy that region.

Duke, UCLA, UConn, Boston College in the Final 4 ;-D

I'm not sure but Nebraska ain't that bad. They beat Oklahoma in the Big 12 tournament.
