Belmont has the horses
Los Angeles Times
Let's start in the Southeast Region, with No. 13 Belmont over No. 4 Wisconsin? Belmont has sort of a Butler "look" this year. The Bruins are 30-4 and play an up-tempo style that utilizes waves of players. Wisconsin seems ripe for an upset after scoring 33 points in a Big Ten tournament loss to Penn State.
I also like, slightly less, in the same region, No.11 Gonzaga over No. 6 St. John's. The Zags are playing their best ball of the season while St. John's enters the tournament wounded without D.J. Kennedy.
I also like the first-round winner, USC or Virginia Commonwealth,...
