Of all the Sweet Sixteen match-ups, I am most excited for those 3 in bold:
9 Kansas State vs 5 Kentucky
11 Loyola Chicago vs 7 Nevada
3 Michigan vs 7 Texas A&M
11 Syracuse vs 2 Duke
1 Kansas vs 5 Clemson
3 Texas Tech vs 2 Purdue
9 Florida State vs 4 Gonzaga
1 Villanova vs 5 West Virginia
Loyola has been sort of an out of nowhere surprise team for me this year that I was lucky enough to watch a majority of their first two wins, both coming in the last few seconds. Probably my favorite underdog still alive in the tournament, with a legit chance. So naturally I'm biased against Nevada.
Syracuse is a close second though. Wouldn't be crazy if 2 11 seeds made it to the finals? I know it won't happen. Just hope that it will. But I did pick Duke to win it all, so there's that.
I had Duke playing Gonzaga in the finals in most of my brackets actually. So my picks are biased to underdogs and my bracket picks. Either way, I see those being the most exciting games to watch out for, for the Sweet 16. Wanted to share and see if anyone here agrees.
