Syracuse beatdown
Kansas State beatdown
Washington pulls out a close one
Cornell blowout upset. Cal's cannot play a disciplined game against a crisp shooting, highly experienced Cornell with great chemistry.

Syracuse is just better. Far too much size, strength and speed for Butler to deal with. It's just a bad matchup, as Syracuse shoots the highest FG% in college hoops and will kill Butler on the glass. Syracuse is even their match in 3 pt shooting, the one area most would think Butler has an edge.

Kansas State, in a weird year, has the look of a party crasher to me. Playing very confident, and the one team they couldn't seem to figure out is gone. Have played an awful lot of tough games, and look like a team that can match Xavier's intensity.

Bryant's poor shooting won't be missed, but he's a big part of that WV team. I still think they've got enough quality depth to overcome Thomas & Pondexter, who have been the show for Washington. Probably the best upset shot of the four imo, but I don't see it happening.

Cornell has been a great story, and they're an excellent offensive team. They've had a great draw too, getting two poor offenses (Temple & Wisconsin). But they don't play good defense, and I don't see them being able to straight up outscore Kentucky. UK has active, offensive minded bigs, of the quality Cornell hasn't seen all year. Watch Cornell's big guy get in foul trouble in a hurry. When he's not on the floor, they're like every other good Ivy league team in the past: way over their heads against an elite team.

Enjoy! Good luck to all.

Arguably the 4 of the 5 (including Ohio State) best teams left in the tournament. Those are my picks.

Cornell will give Kentucky a good game though.
