red- round two
green- sweet sixteen
blue- elite eight
purple- final four
1 UNC16 E Kentucky
-Eastern Kentucky was originally founded as Central University. We think that UNC will be able to capitalize on the disoriented Colonels and pull this one out.
8 Marquette9 Mich St
-Probably the best first round match-up. We don't like the Big Ten this year, so it's the Golden Eagles.
-Frank McGuire won a title at UNC and his brother Al McGuire won one at MU. UNC started the trend of young Negroes leaving school early for an NBA paycheck (Bob McAdoo), so we'll take the 'Heels.
5 USC12 Arkansas
-Arkansas is forever cursed by their treatment of Brother Nolan Richardson. A man who brought decency and championships to the program, and in turn was cast away because of the color of his skin. Ask him! It's USC here.
-USC's basketball savior is due to arrive next year. Texas' is already on campus. Hook 'em.
-The last two teams that won championships and were basically one trick ponies in the NCAA's were led by Carmello Anthony and Danny Manning. Two exceptionally versatile players. They were also coached by legends. UNC has got to eventually hit its stride and play some tough D, right? Right!? We'll write this pick in the sand: 'Heels.
6 Vanderbilt11 Geo Wash
Vanderbilt was the first SEC school to recruit a Negro athlete. George Washington owned slaves. Vandy.
-In a battle of Negro coaches, the Hoyas talent is too much. The token white guys at the end of the bench will be very excited.
-The basset hound looking Thompson will lead his team over Washington St.
-You can't coach heart. Or maybe you can. The 'Hoyas just have more of it, regardless. GU out of the East.
-And we'll take obscene young talent over Xavier.
-With Pat Summitt off coaching the Lady Vols, the men just won't have the necessary support in the stands. UVA.
-The Big Ten is weak this year, but UVA got an easy rotation through the ACC. Bucks are too much.
6 Louisville11 Stanford
We all know Stanford doesn't deserve to be seeded this high. THEY should have been in the play-in game. Cards.
-Billy Gillespie coaches TAMU. Mike Gillespie coaches FAMU (an HBCU). We don't know if they are related or not, but we like the continuity and connection to the HBCU. A&M.
7 Nevada10 Creighton
-This game just sounds like a white-wash. We'll take the Pack.
-The athletic Tigers against the Fazekis lead Wolfpack. The athletes win (still happy, anonymous?)
-Chaney might not be around to choke Caliperi, but A&M's defense will. Aggies.
-A&M is a team that plays tough D and can win without scoring in the paint. To the Final Four for Ags.
-Two teams that have solid athleticism and solid D. But Brother Thompson truly has his Negro players' hearts and love. Hoyas to face the Gators.
-Big East vs. SEC. Defending champs with explosive team vs. rekindled fire with Princeton based O and tough D. Roy Hibbert will expose the high yellow Noah as a pretender.
The Georgetown Hoyas, led by Negro coach John Thompson III are your champs.
