The three upsets that went down today were mind-blowing. The potential for some of the same thing happening tomorrow is very good.
Biggest upset potentials:
No. 3 Arizona State vs. No. 11 Arkansas-Little Rock
The Sun Devils are functioning as one, as they have all season, and the Trojans have vaulted to another level. The game could go either way, as UALR is clearly underrated.
No. 4 North Carolina vs. No. 5 Ohio State
A seemingly fated match up, as both teams lost much coming into the year, but have achieved beyond expectations. The Buckeyes could upset on the force of their sheer determination, which has been great.
No. 4 Stanford vs. No. 5 Oklahoma
Both teams have been shaky, like riding a roller coaster. The winner will depend upon which team – of each team – shows up to play.
No. 2 Florida State vs. No. 7 FGCU
Prediction: Seminoles. They are just too good, and could make it to the Final Four.
No. 2 Tennessee vs. No. 10 Pitt
Prediction: Tennessee. The Panthers have come a long way this season, but the Lady Vols are the better team.
No. 1 Maryland vs. No. 8 Princeton
Prediction: Terps. They are insanely good, and may make it back to the Final Four.
No. 1 Connecticut vs. No. 8 Rutgers
Prediction: UConn. No further comments necessary.
No. 3 Louisville vs. No. 6 South Florida
Prediction: Louisville, but barely. I almost put this one in the “possible upset” section.
