Free NCAA Tournament Picks and Start Times: Duke vs. Troy

The madness of the round of 64 starts today, and the Kaimn staff has got you covered.

Before long, the Wildcats were having their way, and except for DiVincenzo missing two breakaway dunks, Villanova showed why many believe they can win it all again.

Who will win it all?

More important though was the play of Jayson Tatum.

The Blue Devils became the first five seed to win the ACC tournament, which draws a parallel with the 2010-11 UConn Huskies run to win the championship. Even though Duke was put in the same bracket as the No. 1 overall seeded Villanova Wildcats, Duke will advance to the Final Four out of the East and head to Phoenix en route to its sixth national title in program history.

The 'Cats also happen to be red-hot right now, winning their last 11 games and capping off another SEC Tournament title.

Yes, another year has passed without the NCAA issuing penalties for North Carolina athletes taking phony courses to keep them academically ineligible.

Daum (pictured), a 6-foot-9 power forward, is the nation's No. 2 scorer on the NCAA D-1 level, averaging 25.3 points per game while making 51 percent of his shots from the field and 87 percent at the free-throw line.

No.8 Wisconsin, No.5 Virginia and No.4 Florida are hoping to upset Villanova before the regional final.

After a quiet Thursday in the 2017 NCAA Tournament, Friday brought a few more upsets, but nothing too shocking.

The #15 Northern Kentucky Norse (24-10) will go against their in-state rivals in the first round of the NCAA tournament. "That means we're in the national championship, first of all".

In other words, given two images of identical size, the Google-compressed JPEG looks nicer. Google describes the slower compression process as a "worthy tradeoff".

In the Sweet 16, Duke would face Baylor if seeds hold.

"I have to have the confidence that if they do call my name, I'm ready to play and if he decides to sit me out, he's the one that makes that decision, I just have to be ready". Their direction on offensive has been lackluster and playing without Chris Boucher will definitely be the downfall for them this year.

There is only one question fans care about when discussing the West Region.

No. 12 Middle Tennessee is probably the best upset pick in this entire round. Two is less than 15, and 15 is greater than 2. "It's been a good year for me".

► 9:50 p.m., East Region No. 7 SC vs. "We obviously didn't finish the way we wanted to, but we learned from that and we grew". The shakeup worked. Duke then won seven in a row. They are the bluest of basketball's blue bloods at an elite private university.

It took time for Tatum to get healthy and emerge as one of the best freshman in the country.

What else is there to be said about Lonzo Ball. He averaged 22 points per game on 55.3 percent shooting in the ACC Tournament, and he might be primed to have a memorable NCAA Tournament run. Also to mention he is a finalist for the Wooden award, there isn't much he hasn't done for the Bruins this year. "I don't know what was different in this game, but I'm still playing with emotion". And then they thrive off it. The Blue Devils hit a 3-pointer on the game's opening possession, had 10 3-pointers by halftime and finished with 13. UNC is the top seed in the South, which is strong with Kentucky and UCLA.

From the Fab Five to the recent airplane accident, the Wolverines have always been a fun team to watch when adversity arises. "Sometimes that's overblown because we've already played 30-some games each". "Guys weren't talking on the defensive end and we really paid attention to that in the second half". The top four ranked teams last week were Kansas, reigning champ Villanova, UCLA and upstart Gonzaga.

The New Oxford American Dictionary defines a catamount as "a medium-sized or large wild cat, especially a cougar".

The team that will most likely stand in its way of accomplishing that goal is my choice to win it all, the Arizona Wildcats. It's the best mascot routine since running into the goal post.
