It’s that time again, “Go big, or Go home”. The field is set and everyone is filling their brackets out. I always fill out several, in hopes of filling that PERFECT bracket out. (Lol, it’s never happened for me). This has been a “rollercoaster ride”, year in college basketball. A crazy, chaotic mess sums it up, so I will be picking some doozies this year in my brackets.

I have Kentucky winning (83-71), of course, (I don’t think Vanderbilt will play yet), but I think Kentucky continues to play one game at a time, continuing to play good defense, sharing the ball, and shots falling. Kentucky beats Davidson in first round.

MY FIRST ROUND WINNER PREDICTIONS:

JAY HAZZE: Twitter: @JHazzeUKFAD

Kentucky, Virginia, Creighton, Arizona, Loyola-Chicago, Tennessee, Nevada, Cincinnati, Xavier, Florida St., Ohio St., Gonzaga, Houston, Michigan, Providence, North Carolina, Villinova, Virginia Tech, Murray St., Florida, Texas Tech, Butler, Purdue, (Pennsylvania), NC St., New Mexico St. Auburn, TCU, Michigan St., URI, Duke.

These are my first round winners in one of my brackets, look close, I have some doozies in there! My bold prediction is that a 16 seed beats a 1 seed this year, yes thats right, I’m picking Penn. to upset Kansas in the first round, now thats a bracket buster!!

In the first round match up against Davidson, I believe that Kentucky wins 74-60. I believe that our perimeter defense will cause fits for Davidson and the overall size of Kentucky’s front court in Washington, Jones, Richards, and Vanderbilt (which I believe plays Thursday) will be to much for Davidson to overcome.

FIRST ROUND WINNER PREDICTIONS:

Kansas, Texas, San Diego St., Oklahoma, NC St., and Alabama all win in the first round.

Kentucky wins (78-62)

FIRST ROUND WINNER PREDICTIONS:

Buffalo is a dangerous team offensively, Arizona lacks on defense and I can see them looking past this team, Buffalo shocks the nation.

Loyola beating Miami isn’t really much of an upset to me, Miami’s leading scorer is averaging 11 to 12 points a game and they’ve lost quite a few games, Loyola looks to be the better team to me.

New Mexico State pick is because since 2000, there have only ever been 3 years where a 5 seed didn’t lose to a 12 seed, Clemson is the weakest 5 I see, New Mexico State gets it done!

Stephen F. Austin over Texas Tech would shock a lot of people, but they’ve busted brackets before against fellow Big 12 team West Virginia, Texas Tech seems to play up and down to the teams they play, Stephen F. Austin does it again.

Kentucky plays Thursday @ 7:10 p.m. ET, on CBS

LETS GO BIG BLUE!!!
