ncaa 3 ncaa 3      ncaa 3  ncaa 3

 

We are getting closer to my favorite time of the year college basketball. I am giving you my preseason Jerology as I call it. Its like bracketology, but with a cooler name. I have done my homework on all of the NCAA teams that I have picked in my 1st Jerology. Now obviously this could change throughout the season , but I thought it would be fun to see how smart am I to start the season. You ready?

The East regional sweet 16 will be played at the mecca of basketball at Madison Square Garden in New York City. It was held there three years ago (and should be a host site every year) and was a smashing success. Uconn ended up winning that region in 2014.

The Midwest regional will be held in Memphis. The committee really nailed these regional sites perfectly. Look for a rocking crowd here as well.

 

The First Four as usual will be played in Dayton. I picked these teams for the First Four.

16 seed-Florida Gulf Coast vs New Hampshire

16 seed-Howard vs. Texas Southern

12 seed-Maryland vs. Virginia Tech

11 seed-California vs. Vanderbilt

 

 

These are the sites for all games.

2017 HOST ROUND SITE VENUE
March 14, 15 Dayton First Four Dayton, Ohio UD Arena
March 16, 18 MAAC First, Second Buffalo, N.Y. First Niagara Center
March 16, 18 Marquette First, Second Milwaukee BMO Harris Bradley Center
March 16, 18 UCF, Stetson First, Second Orlando, Fla. Amway Center
March 16, 18 Utah First, Second Salt Lake City EnergySolutions Arena
March 17, 19 ACC First, Second Greensboro, N.C. Greensboro Coliseum
March 17, 19 Horizon, IUPUI First, Second Indianapolis Bankers Life Fieldhouse
March 17, 19 Tulsa First, Second Tulsa, Okla. BOK Center
March 17, 19 CSU Sacramento First, Second Sacramento, Calif. Entertainment and Sports Center

I have some teams seeded higher and lower than some experts. I am higher on SEC teams than most. I also think Illinois St is gonna steal a bid from the Missouri Valley Conference. I think the ACC is overrated but they could get as many as 11 teams in the tournament this year. This is going to be a dynamite year for college basketball. The cream of the crop teams like Duke and Kentucky are loaded and there are so many sleeper(St Marys) and dark horse(Uconn and San Diego st)teams this year its gonna be a blast!

The Final Four will be held in Phoenix. I can’t wait!
