    I have Kentucky in my bracket for the men. I think they're better than some of the pro teams.

    I think Baylor will win the women's title. Brittany Griner is amazing. Did you see her dunk in traffic the other night? :thumbs:

    For the women, I take Baylor as well. I saw Brittney play in person earlier this year and she is amazing! She didn't dunk in the game, but she did during the warm ups. In addition, she also has a nice group of players around her who can also shoot and take it to the basket. I'm not sure if anyone can stop them, but ND may give them another close game if the two of them play.

    For the men, I think it may be UK -- at least that's what my bracket says. If Baylor can get by Xavier on Friday, it will be interesting to see what they can do. You never know what Baylor team will show up -- will it be the team that lost to Iowa State or the team that beat Kansas? If the latter team shows up, I think Baylor could possibly take them. Otherwise, I think it's UK all the way.

    Well, UK tonight, went 35-37 from the "charity stripe". Apparently they really like charity. They defeated the hated "Loosiers", errr, I meant Hoosiers 102-90. This was with Anthony Davis riding the pine for the majority of the 1st half, too.

    I am not saying they WILL win it all, but if they don't, I'll be miffed. But as the saying goes,"It's not who you play that really matters, but when you play them." All it takes is for UK to have an off-night, and the other team be hot, and they'll go down.


    But I still say it loud n pround, UK all the way, baby!!!

    Well, I went 4/4 with final four teams, in the 99% for the ESPN brackets.


    Let's finish out strong!

    As a Volunteer...I'm hoping that Summitt can find some kind of magic tonight.

    I'm not 100% sure that Griner is even human!:laugh: (just kidding).

    I live in Indiana, and I have an IU degree. But it was more out of local/necessity than want.

    I love watching IU basketball lose. I was so happy they lost this time.

    I think whoever wins between KY and Louisville will be so emotionally spent that the winner of Kansas and Ohio State will take it all. I still thik Kentucky is the best team, just not sure they will win.

    I was sorry to see Baylor, who I think will win it all, beat TN tonight. I'd like to see Pat Summit go out on top.

    I'm in the 95% on espn. I was doing well until Saturday and Sunday.

    I am not so sure about that, Brother Tom. UK is a team that is in very good shape, plus they will have sunday to rest. That being said, OSU would pose the biggest roadblock in UK's road to the championship, provided they can get by KU. Sullinger is a beast in the middle that could get Davis in foul trouble. But, they have to get by Louisville, and OSU by KU for this to happen.
