Elite 8 Boys....time for the nitty gritty...i have 10 out of 16 teams left in the Sweet Sixteen...and have been heartbroken everyday of this tournament...so let's see if i've gotten any smarter.

The blue devils will win this game but not with offense. This will be won with their defense. It has to be. LSU has the players that can neutralize sheldon down low and also have a jj reddick type player that can make the shots....so it will rely on duke's defense which was strong against GW to get them through.Texas
Remember earlier in the year, 1 vs. 2....duke vs. texas...I want the rematch and I think texas does too. After getting shown up by 31 points I think texas will fight as hard as they can to get to the next round and show duke the improved team. Determination will help texas run over the Mountaineers.Memphis/Bradley
I can't pick a winner here is my heart and brain are at conflict. Memphis is the better team on paper, but Bradley is the hot team as of late. Bradleys already downed kansas...which is in my final four, and pittsburg. Memphis has had an easy road of bucknell and oral roberts. The slipper has to fall off sometime, but when? This game I cannont pick because as much as I think I should pick memphis....bradley has a strong presence on the court and could easily dance on into the elite 8. I'll leave this one like this because I can't decide.Gonzaga
I am a Zag fan, as I sport their hat quite often, but this game is a tough one. UCLA has had an easy road but they've shown that in the scores. I think this one is once again will you see determination prevail because Adam Morrison just plain wants it. He wants to prove that the team, and himself are for real, and he will do it in a win against UCLA.....going bold here....10+Connecticut
This is a super tough one. Which huskie to pick....I have to go with UCONN only because they're UCONN. The name wins this time because this game will be close...maybe even in overtime. Washington has the second best player on the west coast, only beating be adam morrison, in roy, and he will be an impact. UCONN faces a scare but will prevail...I think...once again...this is a toss up and you have to go with the name.Wichita St
I knew good things would come out of this team, as in once braket I have them going to the sweet sixteen and another the elite 8...I'm riding this team through as they are amazing at both ends of the court and hustle for 40 minutes....Wichita St by 10.Villanova
Let me start by saying....Boston College's run in the ACC tourney and the championship game put them on a pedistool and I just now realize that. Everyone has been boasting boston college since that game when really they're a good team but not such of a great one as people think. You put BC on the pedistool and it's time for them to fall. Nova's gurads will dominate this one and Nova will knock the golden eagles back down to earth. I hope I'm wrong.Georgetown
Wow...This might of been a stupid pick, but I think Georgetown slows the pace down and Florida will hurt having to run the half court offense and georgetown will thrive with it as it runs the princeton style o.
