Gonzaga is the best team but I have a feeling they're just going to be the runner-up as usual. I'm not sure yet of who I think would actually win it.

I figure if anyone beats Gonzaga it will be an upset. But there are several teams that could do it.

I'll take the field, but I have no clue who will beat the Zags.

They won't win it all, but Porter's bunch may possibly make some noise again this year. Their big guy is a textbook in the post, and has been all along. And he is a senior this season.

It won't be Virginia. They just don't have the horses this year, plus they had all that last-minute Covid distraction.

RE: OK, who wins it all?
I usually root for the teams that win with discipline, defense, and good execution, not with athleticism and high-powered offenses. (TTech and Virginia was a dream Finals for me.) But I might make an exception for the Zags this season. It is their turn, and Few certainly has earned it.

They start with Georgia Tech who has won 8 ACC games in a row. Tech has a person in their "traveling party" that tested positive, but won't reveal if it is a player or staff. I guess they could be vulnerable if it is a key player. Regardless, Loyola could certainly beat Tech and I believe they are favored to do so. But, beating #1 Illinois is a different story.

I heard Porter say on the radio that Loyola got "screwed" with their seeding. I agree 100%.

RE: OK, who wins it all?
The "experts" are really high on Gonzaga. I really haven't seen them play, but they are obviously very good. Probably won't really be tested the first 2 rounds. But, they will still have to beat 4 really good teams to win the whole thing.

Wow. The player who is out is the ACC player of the year, Moses Wright. Lucky I haven't submitted my bracket anywhere.

I love watching Krutwig. He is not quick or graceful, but he is so fundamentally sound.

RE: OK, who wins it all?
Except for the true powerhouse programs, like UCLA in the '60s and '70s, luck enters into winning the tournament to such a degree that it is extremely difficult to pick. (Like the 3-shot foul on Kyle Guy late in the Auburn game. The ref got it right, but he easily could have missed it.) I don't think Gonzaga quite reaches that level, but logically I do think they are the pick of the litter.

Well, I found out tonight who would beat them. Gonzaga was never really in the game from the opening tip.

RE: OK, who wins it all?
I eventually picked Baylor in my bracket for the challenge. Everybody else in my bracket pool picked Gonzaga. Ultimately my Baylor pick and trust in a Loyola run got me the win in the bracket challenge!
