In the West Region I have a few underdogs that could do some damage in the tournament. The first dog from this region that I like to advance to the second round is Memphis. Memphis is facing off against Boise St. Memphis has been playing their best basketball and is up against a tough Boise St. team. Boise St. has never won a tournament game and is 0-7 all time. I don’t see this trend changing!
My second dog that could advance to the second round and potentially to the 3rd round is Davidson. I am not big on Michigan St. and think that Davidson could cause some problems for the Spartans. Davidson has experience guard play and is big in the paint. I think they meet Duke in round 3 and could potentially upset Duke as well. Personally, I have Duke winning, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Davidson made it a tough matchup.
