    Virginia got the #1 overall seed. Then Villanova, Kansas and Xavier, in that order. Which team do you think has the best path to getting the furthest in the tournament, and possibly winning in the finals?

    I think Xavier has a tough road, as I really like Gonzaga and think that potential Sweet 16 showdown could spell an out for them. So that's my guess there.

    I think Villanova's is a bit tougher even than that. Could be facing Alabama in the Round of 32. And then Wichita State in the Sweet 16. I do not see them winning both those games, if it plays out that way.

    Virginia's toughest test I think is Kentucky in a potential Sweet 16 showdown. Otherwise, I think they can actually go all the way.

    And then you have Kansas, who I think has the easiest path. Sure Auburn and Clemson are quite good, but I think they can handle them. Leaves Duke in the potential Final Four as the biggest threat to them going all the way, I believe.

    So the way I see it: we could very well see Virginia v Kansas in the finals. If it's not #1 seeds in the finals, as that's not the perfect norm, I could see Gonzaga and/or Wichita State in their as well. Ideally, Gonzaga vs Kansas for me.

    Also curious if anyone here sees any Cinderella teams going all the way this year?

    I put Tennessee and Gonzaga in the Final Four in my first bracket. And then Villanova and Duke on the other side. Then Gonzaga and Duke in the finals. UNCG gave Gonzaga some trouble in that first game though, made me a bit nervous on that pic. Next up for them is probably Ohio State; that'll be a really good test for them.

    16 seed UMBC just beat 1 seed Virginia.. by 20 points. Cinderella as it gets. Would love to see them go all the way.

    How's everyone's bracket doing? Still have any champ winners in the mix?

    3 of my 4 from my main bracket made it to the sweet 16. Only missed the Tennesse call. Still have a Gonzaga v Duke championship shot though, so doing pretty good so far.

    That's insane. First time in history, too. I wonder how many quick bets were made for them to win the championship, or at least get much further. I bet Virginia feels horrible right about now.

    My bracket seems to fall apart way too fast to be super excited about it.
