We have given you the first half, plus #65…now we bring you the rest of the teams that will be dancing come March Madness. Tyler Tomlinson presents his filled out bracket!
Oklahoma Sooners — Their set back against Texas will not hurt them when they win the Big 12 Tournament.
North Carolina Tar Heels — There are a lot of good ACC teams, but UNC will rise as the cream of the crop.
Michigan State Spartans — These guys are getting hated all over on WGEM Sportscenter, but I think they are at least Sweet 16 bound with Tom Izzo at the helm.
Duke Blue Devils — Strong wins vs. Maryland and VA Tech have the Dukies looking primed for the postseason.
Wake Forest Deom Deacons – A team at once atop the entire NCAA has fallen to a 3 seed.
Kansas Jayhawks — Bill Self has coached this team to a 3 seed, amazingly done for the defending champs.
Xavier Musketeers – They have hit some rough spots but will finish with a conference tournament title.
Missouri Tigers – This team has exceeded all expectations and deserves this spot in the tournament.
Arizona State Sun Devils — On their way to a strong finished they stubbed their toe against the Washington schools which will hurt.
Illinois Fighting Illini — A solid 5 seed for the Illini, a good place to surprise some teams.
Washington Huskies – This team has gotten flaming hot at the right time, knocking off ASU and others.
Syracuse Orangemen — They have the capability to play well, but doesn’t every team in the Big East?
Florida State Seminoles — ‘Noles benefit from being in the ACC, sweeping Clemson helped.
Ohio State Buckeyes — This may be too gracious. It’s a toss up between them and Minnesota.
Minnesota Golden Gophers — I was high on this team since the start of the season. Gotta love Tubby!
West Virginia Mountaineers — Late season win against Villanova will pad resume.
Tennessee Volunteers — The SEC exists this season? Bruce Pearl has a lot of talent that he cant control.
Wisconsin Badgers — A WGEM Sportscenter producer (BH) says there are no good coaches in the Big 10, this team has one of the best in the nation, Bo Ryan.
Cincinnati Bearcats — The team causing all the controversy got a big win over WV, especially if the Mountaineers get in.
Kentucky Wildcats — I would most likely have moved South Carolina up and kept Kentucky here, now I have them both as #10′s.
Virginia Tech Hokies — Must win one of their last two regular season games or this prediction flops.
Miami Hurricanes — Hello ACC teams. Calm down Tyler, it’s like your favorite team is Duke or something.
Siena Saints — Siena stacked their schedule, TEN, PITT, OK ST., KANSAS, it may help out in the end, 1st round upset anyone?
San Diego State Aztecs – They are like last year’s San Diego, but not as good.
VCU Rams – The team that knocked off Duke last season comes back with the same star Eric Maynor and a better supporting squad…watch out!
Western Kentucky Hilltoppers – This team has given us some fun games in the tournament. Expect the same this year.
Vermont Catamounts — Is it just me or is this team ALWAYS in the tournament?
American Eagles — For the second straight year the Eagles are the dominant team in the Patiort League.
Tennessee-Martin Skyhawks — Marquis Weddle and the Hawks will win the Ohio Valley Tournament.
Belmont Bruins — I expect the Bruins to shock Van-Far grad Mike Smith and E. Tenn. State and win the Atlantic Sun. Belmont knows how to win.
Radford Highlanders — It would be a shock if Radford last the Big South Tournament.
Alabama State Hornets — The Hornets played some SEC teams tough…the first ever #16 team to beat a #1 seed? Also have the best name in hoops Chief Kickingstallionsims.
