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

First Round

#8 Ole Miss vs. #9 Oklahoma: [long pause] Umm, Ole Miss? Pick: Ole Miss
#5 Wisconsin vs. #12 Oregon: I refuse to pick a Pac-12 group, and Oregon’s greatest win of the season was against Syracuse on a neutral court. Their defense is great, but the offense is not. That will not be enough to get it done against Wisconsin. Select: Wisconsin
#4 Kansas State vs. #13 UC Irvine: This really is the bad combo of a hot double-digit seed meeting a Power 5 college with injuries. The Anteaters beat up on the Big West Conference, winning both the regular season and conference tournament titles. K-State won’t have Barry Brown, meaning they’ll have to compensate for his scoring and match direction someplace. Oh, and UC Irvine has a dude named Max Hazzard. MAX HAZZARD!!! Pick: UC Irvine
#6 Villanova vs. #11 Saint Mary’s: The Wildcats are nowhere near the team they were last year after they won the tournament, but they could still take threes fairly well and shouldn’t have any difficulties with St. Mary’s. It’ll be close, however. Pick: Villanova
#3 Purdue vs. #14 Old Dominion: LET’S GET CRAZY. Old Dominion over Purdue later Carsen Edwards includes a quiet afternoon, while BJ Stith and Ahmad Caver move OFF. Select: Old Dominion
#7 Cincinnati vs. #10 Iowa: This is actually the yelling coach sport as Fran McCaffrey and Mick Cronin are known for their. . .fiery personalities on the sidelines. Iowa has been leaking every kind of fluid down the stretch and are limping into the championship. Cincinnati takes it in a physical, gritty game. Pick: Cincinnati
#2 Tennessee vs. #15 Colgate: Colgate has about as much of a chance here as a real tube of toothpaste. The Volunteers are big, physical, and Tennessee moves easily. Select: Tennessee
Second Round
#1 Virginia vs. #9 Ole Miss: The Cavaliers are overly much on both defense and offense as they’re the only team in the nation in the top-5 in equally on KenPom. Pick: Virginia
#5 Wisconsin vs. #13 UC Irvine: Wisconsin’s outside shooting goes cold and UC Irvine’s run in the postseason persists. Am I only picking this because literally nobody wishes to see Virginia-Wisconsin from the Sweet 16? Maybe. Select: UC Irvine
#12 Old Dominion vs. #6 Villanova: Cinderella’s ball is cut short. Nova shoots ODU from the gym. Pick: Villanova
#7 Cincinnati vs. #1 Tennessee: CINCY VS TENNY IN COLUMBUS. Ok, fine, I will not call them”Tenny” again. This one is a brutal conflict, but Tennessee squeaks out one late thanks to a large play from Jordan Bone. Select: Tennessee
Sweet Sixteen
#1 Virginia vs. #13 UC Irvine: The Cavaliers have construction confidence as they cruise into the Elite Eight. De’Andre Hunter, Ty Jerome, and Kyle Guy are too much for the Anteaters, moving them one win away from the promise land. Pick: Virginia
#6 Villanova vs. #2 Tennessee: Another game which I desperately want to see. Finesse vs. braun. Villanova slows down things and gets warm from out as Paschall has a big day at the paint. Pick: Villanova
Elite Eight
#1 Virginia vs. #6 Villanova: Villanova is worn out after a difficult game with Tennesee and can’t figure out the Bundle Line defense. It’ll be close through the first half, however the Hoos pull away down the stretch. Pick: Virginia
