Here’s what I want in the next two days as the main portion of the NCAA Tournament begins.
I want upsets, at least two good ones by a 13, 14, or 15 seed. I want extra basketball, at least two overtimes. I want a player, unknown to most of the country, to light it up (he doesn’t even have to deliver an upset). I want an All-American or two to play like one. I want a big-time team to play as though it’s going to win the national championship.
I know what you want. You want to go 32-0 in your bracket. Well, that’s not happening.
Here are some things to look for in the next two days.
The possible “good’’ upsets: North Dakota State over Oklahoma, North Carolina State over Saint Louis, Western Michigan over Syracuse.
