Posted on: March 21, 2009 1:52 am

 Best Game: Marquette vs. Missouri, easy choice.

(1) UCONN vs. (9) Texas A&M


A&M- 67

This will be competitive for awhile, but UCONN won't mess around, and will advance confortably.

(4) Washington vs. (5) Purdue

Washington- 71

Purdue- 63

Yawn. Im not super excited about this game. I think Washington is better though, and will win in the end.

(3) Missouri vs. (6) Marquette

Mizzou- 82

Marquette- 78

Missouri wins. Because Marquette doesn't have Dominic James. Im a huge Tigers fan, but I'll admit that with James, Marquette would be a big favorite. The fact of the matter is though, that James is out. Missouri will get the job done.

(2) Memphis vs. (10) Maryland

Memphis- 71

Maryland- 74

Hmm, lots of teams that start with M. Anyway, Vasquez is going to carry Maryland against a sluggish, out of sync team that didnt even look interested in the first round against Northridge. Upset special!
