Well the Madness we know as March is almost here…so who ya got?
Virginia cant win it all. No team that can barely score 65 pts can win a title. Sorry
Villanova can score like crazy but they cant not defend the arc. Huge problem vs teams that drain the 3.
Xavier is solid. BUT against its hardest foe, Villanova, they lost by an average of 20 pts! Yikes. Pass
Michigan St is so inconsistent. Will Bridges be eligible come Tourney time?
Duke is so talented. But they are NOT a TEAM. Too many #MeFirst players & not enough basketballs on the floor.
Arizona. Easily the best big man in NCAA but man are they in trouble with these wire taps. See ya ‘Cats
Florida. Talented but who will show up in March?
UNC…hmmm they would be scary and are getting hot at the right time.
Gonzaga…could a Final 4 be in team’s future once again? Not so sure as Villanova undressed this team early in season.
Michigan has the makings of a deep run for some reason. Interesting.
Oklahoma. Easily the best scorer in the NCAA can he carry the Sooners like K. Walker did for UCONN? Oh wait will they even get a bid?
Kansas. Here comes Rock Chalk Jayhawk like always come end of season.
So who ya got????

Virginia can win it all. I’ve never seen anything like it. This team comes through every year with amazing defense. All they have to do is knock down a few threes in the second half. With their style of play, I’m telling ya Frankie, they can do it.
- February 25, 2018 at 3:47 pm #32809
If their shots arent falling and they fall behind by 10 or more in a Tourney game and the other team gets hot and shoots over the top of the zone they could be in big trouble. There isnt one guy I feel comfortable taking a big shot come crunch time. Defense is amazing no doubt. But my money wont be on this team winning it all. Just cant see a team winning a title never getting out of the 60’s in a game. Thats why they call it MADNESS baby! Is it Selection Sunday yet Scottie boy?

Purdue has a chance to make it to the Final Four. But, only if Haas can control the boards. When he’s inconsistent with rebounding and blocking out, it draws Carsen Edwards more under the basket to help cover. Then the other players are forced to cover additional roles. But, if Haas can control the boards Purdue can shoot the 3’s (.420 3P%) and put up points (.497 FG%). At 7’2 Haas can control the boards and protect the rim. He’s worked on his shooting and conditioning this past off season. Which is why he’s hit 141 free throws, out of 185. But, I can’t figure out why he goes through flashes of uncertainty during the game. Yes, Purdue has been up and down over the last month, but this is one of the better teams out of Purdue in recent history. If they can get Haas to work his body to control the game, and stay consistent on their shots they definitely have a chance. Purdue does compare very well with Villanova, one of the better teams this year.
(NCAA bracket seeding may impact)
These are the teams I see making it into the Final Four, as of March 9 @ 1047am CST. Villanova, Xavier, Purdue, North Carolina.

Maybe, we’ll be hearing David Bowie’s 1969 song Space Oddity during the Final Four. Being that was the first time Purdue appeared in the Final Four. UCLA 92 Purdue 72. Tough going against a John Wooden team with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. 1969 NCAA Tournament
I can’t wait until Sunday evening to see what the brackets have in store for us this year!

Would Love to hear your guys’ opinions on this unique contest we have here at ScoutMadness.
Upsets are worth DOUBLE points. How does this change your strategy? Obviously on the surface, it makes picking the 9/8 games and 10/7 games a bit heavier it would seem, but what other strategies are you deploying?
