This sets up a game we all want to see again - Duke vs North Carolina - and this time with a championship on the line.

Gonzaga will likely be an ill-tempered squad after suffering a 60-47 loss to Saint Mary's as 15-point chalk in the West Coast Conference Tournament final, which also marked the team's only straight-up loss in 22 outings ahead of Thursday night's first-round matchup at Vivint Smart Home Arena. The best team in their region is Michigan State, and I think they would easily win that game.

There's going to be those upsets that nobody predicts.

In the last game, Duke finally got over the hump, besting the Tar Heels by a point in the ACC Tournament.

To tell you the truth I think that might be more games than the experts watch because there is no way anyone can actually watch all 64 of these teams to the extent that they know their tendencies and can accurately predict who they can and can't beat. The Raiders can hardly be considered underdogs if they get a shot at second-seeded MI in the Sweet 16.

Gonzaga, besides the win over Duke, hasn't really been tested. It happens every year, and the second after it does, you think to yourself: "Wow, I could have seen that". Well, it's because you were scared. Either team could win, and the victor likely faces No. 2 seed Kentucky in the next round.

Winds will relax as we head through the rest of Friday, with temperatures climbing into the 40s by this afternoon. The Coast Guard and Corps also requested all river vessel operators create as little wake as possible between St.

Let me make some random predictions. If Gonzaga makes it to the Elite Eight, they could face arguably the weakest No. 2 seed in the bracket in MI.

Kansas and Michigan State are also in action, two of the more popular picks each year. Virginia, who shared the regular-season title with North Carolina, is the No. 2 overall seed while UNC is the No. 3 overall seed.

There are bound to be insane upsets and there is likely a Cinderella out there that's going to prove me wrong and make a run to the Sweet 16 or even further.

Michigan State will be led by junior point guard Cassius Winston in the backcourt. When in a bind between two teams choose the ones that have elite level talent, good coaching and some semblance of team chemistry with upperclassmen.

Between Grant Williams, Admiral Schofield and Jordan Bone, among others, the Volunteers have plenty of scoring punch to get through a tough Elite Eight game with Wisconsin to get to the Final Four.
