2013 NCAA Tournament

The NCAA basketball tournament is all set.  You may fill out your brackets:  2013 NCAA Tournament Bracket – March Madness Tournament Brackets – ESPN.  While a good part of America’s workplaces will be turned into gambling parlors, we will host a simpler pool:  What two teams will play for the national championship, and which one will win?

I’ll go first:  Gonzaga (this is a good year for Jesuits) and the University of Kansas (one of my alma maters).  The Jayhawks, despite an up-and-down season, will win.  (This is real life, not a Catholic movie.)

Tiebreaker:  What unexpected team will come out of nowhere and surprise everyone by making the Sweet Sixteen or even higher as happens nearly every year?

  • Louisville vs. Indiana; Indiana takes it.

    I will also say the Jesuits, but the one’s from St. Louis University. SLU vs. Georgetown, SLU wins. The Cinderella story on the year.

  • Dennis

    Indiana and Duke in finals–IU the winner. Watch for one of the MO Valley (Wichita State and Creighton) teams to surprise. And don’t count out Lon Krueger’s Oklahoma.

  • Pete

    Gonzaga vs. Indiana. Zags will win.

  • I am pretty terrible at predicting brackets, but I have Kansas over Louisville in the championship game, with Iowa State as the lowest-seeded team in the Sweet 16.

    University of Texas just edges out Oregon State in the third period.

    Boy, what a border battle that would be! The local media would go nuts, and Hoosier fans would gloat over their river rivals for years.

  • A. MacPhee

    Louisville vs. Indiana. Indiana wins at the buzzer.

  • EGK

    Jayhawks over Louisville in the championship game. As a Jayhawk myself, my prediction is always the Jayhawks over anybody! That is, as long as Obama does not pick them to win it all.

  • Orianna Laun

    Well, apparently I am bad at picking winning teams.
