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

First Round

#1 Virginia vs. #16 Gardner-Webb: THIS IS NOT REMOTELY AN EXCITING OK? MOVE ON LET’S JUST NOT TALK ABOUT IT. WHAT COULD GO WRONG? Pick: Virginia
#8 Ole Miss vs. #9 Oklahoma: [long pause] Umm, Ole Miss? Select: Ole Miss
#5 Wisconsin vs. #12 OregonI refuse to pick a Pac-12 team, and Oregon’s best win of the season was against Syracuse to a neutral court. Their defense is good, but the crime is not. That won’t be sufficient to get it done against Wisconsin. Select: Wisconsin
#4 Kansas State vs. #13 UC Irvine: This is the bad combo of a sexy double-digit seed assembly a Power 5 college with injuries. The Anteaters beat upon the Big West Conference, winning both the regular season and conference tournament titles. K-State won’t have Barry Brown, meaning they will need to make up for his scoring and game direction somewhere. Oh, and UC Irvine has a dude called Max Hazzard. MAX HAZZARD!!! Select: UC Irvine
#6 Villanova vs. #11 Saint Mary’s: The Wildcats are nowhere near the team they were last year after they won the championship, but they could still take threes pretty well and should not have any difficulties with St. Mary’s. It is going to be close, though. Select: Villanova
#3 Purdue vs. #14 Old Dominion: LET’S GET CRAZY. Old Dominion over Purdue later Carsen Edwards has a quiet day, while BJ Stith and Ahmad Caver go OFF. Pick: Old Dominion
#7 Cincinnati vs. #10 Iowa: This is the yelling coach sport as Fran McCaffrey and Mick Cronin are known for their. . .fiery characters on the sidelines. Iowa was leaking every type of fluid down the stretch and are limping to the championship. Cincinnati takes it at a bodily, gritty game. Select: Cincinnati
#2 Tennessee vs. #15 Colgate: Colgate has about as much of a chance here as a real tube of toothpaste. The Volunteers are large, physical, and Tennessee moves on easily. Select: Tennessee
Second Round
#1 Virginia vs. #9 Ole Miss: The Cavaliers are too much on both defense and offense as they’re the only team in the country from the top-5 in both on KenPom. Select: Virginia
#5 Wisconsin vs. #13 UC Irvine: Wisconsin’s outside shooting goes cold and UC Irvine’s run from the postseason continues. Am I just picking this because literally no one 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 out of 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 battle, but Tennessee squeaks one out late as a result of a large play from Jordan Bone. Select: Tennessee
Sweet Sixteen
#1 Virginia vs. #13 UC Irvine: The Cavaliers have building confidence as they cruise to the Elite Eight. De’Andre Hunter, Ty Jerome, and Kyle Guy are too much for the Anteaters, moving them one win away in the promise land. Pick: Virginia
#6 Villanova vs. #2 Tennessee: The other match that I desperately wish to see. Finesse vs. braun. Villanova slows things down enough and gets warm from outside as Paschall has a major day in the paint. Select: Villanova
Elite Eight
#1 Virginia vs. #6 Villanova: Villanova is worn out after a difficult game with Tennesee and can not figure out the Pack Line shield. It’ll be close through the first half, however the Hoos pull away down the stretch. Select: Virginia
