I feel pretty good with my bracket, until I look at the west and mind = blown. Every team there sucks.

Arizona= not the same team without brandon ashley. 2-2 in their last four games, Pac 12 is weak. Never got the impression from watching them they are a dominant team.
Wisconsin= seems like the best option, but puzzling losses throughout the season. Lost 2 out of their last 3. got bounced early last year
Creighton= lol, this team is trash. just lost to providence. didn't play anyone good outside of their terrible conference. would not be surprised to see them lose in the first round.
san diego st= I live on the east coast and haven't seen them play once. Are they good?

Dark horse is OK ST imo. I'm leaning towards picking them or Wisconsin right now. OK ST has been in beast most since Smart came back and they have impressive wins over Kansas, memphism, ksu and colorado.

OP Confirmed potato.

Brandon Ashley has been injured for over a month now. Arizona consistent all year.

SDST is a great TEAM

Wisconsin ... lol

Creighton... once again, you are potato.

Oklahoma wins it if they come out hot. One of the best offenses in the country. They shot worse than ever in the conference tournament against Baylor and still rallied back to a one possession game after being down 21 while Baylor held like a 36-7 free throw advantage. Also swept OK state both times. Buddy Heild and Ryan Spangler can ball and Cam Clark has shown he can go off (ex MSU and KU)

you did not say anything that counters my points. If you think Arizona is the same without Ashley you are lost. Creighton is not good enough to make a serious run in this tournament. I guarantee that.

Ummmm no.


Oklahoma is not going anywhere in the tournament after the Sweet 16, and most likely will lose before that.

this is the best Arizona tean we have had. That being said they are only at 14.5% to win the tournament, and they are the favorites. Honestly bros, who knows? there will most likely be a FGCU like last year that destroys all of our brackets.


I will make one bold prediction. I would bet my house, kid, and wife that Wichita State will not make it through their region to the Final Four.

I really like SDSU. Have seen a few of their games and they look solid. Wouldn't be surprised if they make a good run.

As for Creighton OP... Let me tell you from first hand experience, the butt fuking mcdermott can do to a team is painful. I can confirm, I was Villanova. If him and his team are both hitting shots, they can do some real damage to anybody.

Don't hold your breath, IF Aaron stays, which I think he actually might, Zona will win the tournament next year.

AZ has Stanley Johnson and Parker Jackson-Cartwright coming in.

Both who played on the Soldiers with Gordon... if the trend continues you will get Ivan Raab in 2015 as well...

inb4 the 2015-2016 Arizona roster is Oakland Soldiers lineup of

Gordon
Jackson-Cartwright
Johnson
Raab

Not to mention his ability to play/move without the ball AND his ability to play with his back to the basket.

I think if healthy, we'll be better even without Gordon. TJ/Stanley/RHJ/Ashley/Zeus. Another big/athletic lineup but hopefully with better shooting. York/PJC/Pitts/Victor off bench. We also just got a Serbian center that draftexpress had going in the first round of 2015. Johnson I hear is gone for sure after this year.

Gordon is your best defensive player, hands down. You wont be better without him.

Can't wait for this to start so you can all be proven drones of ESPN hype machine agenda.


Reasons why Wichita St. gets no recognition from ESPN and is always put on the back burner;

1) Small market.

2) No superstar player to showcase.

They are a fantastic TEAM and TEAMS make it further than STARS on poverty teams.

I've been surprised at how good/consistent Arizona has been without Ashley. They could lose for sure. But, I'm going to have a hard time not picking them to take care of business. The West is pretty weak on the whole.

I like Arizona they're battle tested, play great defense, and are essentially playing home games. West region overall is pretty weak, I think Creighton and Wisconsin are both overrated and don't have the athletes to go into a road environment and beat Zona and San Diego seems like a poverty version of Zona. A match up in the round of 32 against a talented OK State could actually be their toughest hurdle. Also, like Oregon as a sleeper team who could make the elite 8- playing great ball down the strech

I live on the east coast and I have seen SDSU play at least 3 times this year lol if thames doesn't score a bunch they lose. I hate picking 1 and 2 seeds but you can't argue that arizona and wisconsin are the best in that region.
