March Madness predictions 2019: Virginia is going to win it all. East Region

First Round

#1 Duke vs. #16 North Dakota State/North Carolina Central: We don’t know yet who Duke will play, but it is irrelevant because neither ND State nor NC Central possess Zion Williamson. Duke does. Select: Duke
#8 VCU vs. #9 UCF: As is true for every 8/9 match, this one is a tough choice. UCF has Tacko Fall, and while I desperately wish to see him matchup against Zion, ” I believe VCU’s defense does enough to continue in this one. Select: VCU
#5 Mississippi State vs. #12 Liberty: The Flames will give Mississippi State a match, but I don’t believe they have enough to overcome Quinndary Witherspoon and the Bulldogs. Pick: Mississippi State
#4 Virginia Tech vs. #13 Saint Louis: The Hokies get Justin Robinson back following a toe injury that sidelined the star guard for the last 12 matches of the year (such as the ACC tournament). Together with Robinson back, VT is going to be able to maneuver Nickeil Alexander-Walker back to more of a pure shooter function than a distributor function. Select: Virginia Tech
#6 Maryland vs. #11 Belmont: Maryland is among those Big Ten teams limping into the championship as they lost three of their past four games played. Belmont will keep this one close, but can’t get their second NCAA tournament win. Select: Maryland
#3 LSU vs. #14 YaleI really want to decide on the Bulldogs. Like, really, really wish to select on them. Miye Oni is a baller, and the Elis have the 10th greatest eFG% from the country. . .but, their defense isn’t great. LSU still won’t have Will Wade on the sidelines, but I believe the Tigers are simply too much in this one. Pick: LSU
#7 Louisville vs. #10 Minnesota: I mean, Louisville I guess? The most intriguing thing about the game is that the committee set Richard Pitino against Poppa Pitino’s older squad. Jordan Nwora is a whole lot of fun to see, so and the real deal. . .yeah. The Cards. Pick: Louisville
#2 Michigan State vs. #15 Bradley: Michigan State with no doubt. Select: Michigan State
Second Round
#1 Duke vs. #9 VCU: [checks rosters] Yep, Duke still has Zion Williamson. Pick: Duke
#4 Virginia Tech vs. #5 Mississippi State: Dealing with the Hokies moving to the Sweet 16. Kerry Blackshear has been great in the post and Ty Outlaw is one of the top three point shooters in the country in 46%. Pick: Va Tech
#6 Maryland vs. #3 LSU: Battle of the bigs. I’m really here for this particular match. Maryland’s Jaylen Smith and Bruno Fernando are as good a frontcourt as any in the country, and they’ll have their hands filled with LSU’s Naz Reid. The Terps will not have sufficient outside shooting, so I’m going with LSU to move on in a close one. Pick: LSU
#2 Michigan State vs. #7 Louisville: The Cardinals somehow squeaked out an OT win over the Spartans back in late November, however I do not believe that they get the season sweep. Ryan McMahon had 24 points in the win. MSU probably won’t have Kyle Ahrens from the tournament Because of an accident in the Big Ten title game, but the Spartans have enough with Cassius Winston, Nick Ward, and Matt McQuaid. Pick: Michigan State
Sweet Sixteen
#1 Duke vs. #4 Virginia Tech: Now things are getting interesting. Duke lost to Virginia Tech in Blacksburg at the regular season when Duke was Zion and VT was Robinson. The Hokies will make a match of this, but Duke’s superstars are too much down the stretch. Select: Duke
#2 Michigan State vs. #3 LSU: So much chalk. MSU takes this one in a very physical matchup. Pick: Michigan State
Elite Eight
#1 Duke vs. #2 Michigan State: Should we do not actually get this game, I’ll be furious. Some were amazed MSU got stuck at the East Area with Duke as the Spartans could have fairly been a No. 1 seed themselves. Instead, they got paired up with the No. 1 overall seed in the Blue Devils. MSU will make Duke pay for their mistakes, but Zion strikes a game winner late. Select: Duke
