Ranking the remaining teams in the Midwest Region — March Madness

Getty Images

Seventh-seeded Nevada added to that by matching the second-biggest comeback in tournament history to beat No. 2 seed Cincinnati 75-73 after trailing by 22 points in the second half.

One player from each team not mentioned above: Terence Mann, Florida State; Clayton Custer, Loyola-Chicago; Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman, Michigan; Tyus Battle, Syracuse. But the East Region has been dominated by the favorites thus far. Meanwhile in the Midwest Region, 5-seed Clemson embarrassed 4-seed Auburn by 31 points in a game that wasn't as close as the final score might indicate. No. 9 Kansas State; No. 7 Nevada vs.

Villanova vs. West Virginia Friday 7:27 et.

There are few programs in the nation that are immune to West Virginia's press. The 6-foot-6 freshman was outstanding in wins over Davidson and Buffalo, averaging 23.0 points, 7.0 rebounds, 6.5 assists and 3.5 steals per game.

West Virginia plays a distinct style regardless of their opponent.

I also dislike when someone nearly runs into me because they don't look up from their phone to walk.

Texas Tech and West Virginia play in the East Region semifinals Friday in Boston. The Bearcats led 65-43 with under 11 minutes to play in Sunday's second-round game. They play other mid-majors, many teams who are very bad. Viewers tune in from all over the country at all times of day to watch the games. I have Villanova winning 76-70. After going off for 19 second-half points in Texas Tech's win over SFA, Evans followed that up with 14 second-half points against Florida. Mid-major teams generally are more fundamentally sound, more team-oriented and more experienced than the big boys.

At risk of sounding like a homer, I had UB winning two games in the Big Dance. Brown scored 18 points in both of those games, and while the field goal percentage (37.0 percent) wasn't great he did manage to go 15-for-18 from the foul line.

Stock Bulletin: Geron Corporation (GERN)
Taking a broader look at the analyst consensus, brokerage firms have a price target of $5.5 on Geron Corporation (NASDAQ: GERN ). If a buyer buys one share of stock from a seller, then that one share is added to the total volume of that particular stock.

Out of 38 tournaments, 26 had three or more upsets in the first round.

When it came time to fill out my NCAA Tournament bracket, it was automatic: Arizona was going to blast off and roll to the Final Four and lose to Michigan State in the National Championship game. But the loss of Haas has been mitigated by the play of guard Carsen Edwards, who has emerged this year as an elite player. He told me before every jump I have to tell myself that I am the sh*t and believe it and take every jump like it was my last one. Don't be surprised if MI runs away with this one. After being placed in the First Four, the Orange have been tested in yet another run to the second weekend. The Jayhawks have a Wooden Award finalist in Devonte Graham who averages 17.4 points per game. His playmaking as both a scorer and passer will be the key for Kansas.

"Experience is the best teacher, and our experience is, if you don't play well at this time of the year your season is over", Hastings said. Grantham's absence has been replaced by a cast of Marcquise Reed, Shelton Mitchell, and Gabe DeVoe.

But realistically, unless everybody stops watching college basketball - good luck getting the fans who are actually die-hard for one school to stop - this pattern is not likely to change anytime soon. Tigers win 68-64.

That brings me to the No. 3-seeded Michigan State Spartans.

Syracuse has certainly earned their way to this spot, having beaten three power conference teams in a period of six days.

It's the only time I've ever rooted for the Orange. Syracuse has the length to make it hard for opponents to shoot over the zone.

Duke will be presented with the challenge of scoring on the Syracuse zone. "She's been just as invested as the head coach". Many top college basketball teams are no longer in the field because of one single word - parity. Their question is if they can make shots. Although the Mavericks wanted to be playing in the WCHA championship game last Saturday, they tried to make the most of their off week, focusing on the details that helped them on their unbeaten streak, one that included victories over Minnesota Duluth and St. Cloud State in January. Allen can hit shots and make plays off the dribble that Syracuse prevented against Michigan State. Against better defensive teams, will the Boilermakers' now perimeter-based attack be able to get the job done?
