The first two rounds are over. Sixteen teams have made it this far. For the other 48, it is a long flight home, with thoughts of what have could have been and what will come in the future.
The Sweet Sixteen will start on Thursday. I will have my picks up by that time. In bewteen, I will try to post some thoughts on each of the eight games.
Here is the outcome of my day 2, round 2 picks, along with my overall record.
Oregon wins 75-61 over Winthrop
Tennessee wins 77-74 over Virginia
Florida wins 74-67 over Purdue
Southern Illinois wins 63-48 over Virginia Tech
Memphis wins 78-62 over Nevada
Kansas wins 88-76 over Kentucky
Wisconsin loses 74-68 to UNLV
(I again went against UNLV. When will I learn.
Texas loses 87-68 to USC
(Being an alumni of Texas, I picked them our of ssetamantality. I must learn to pick teams using my head instaed of my heart)
Overall: 36-12 for 75 percent.
