My Sweet 16 picks

The Sweet 16, is upon us, and like many of you, my bracket is not close to being perfect. So tonight, I will try to rectify this by picking the Sweet 16 games tonight.

Southeast Region:
2. Florida vs. 3 BYU-since I had Florida going to the Final Four, I am going to pick Florida for this one. In addition, I don't know how BYU will do against elite competition after the loss of center Brandon Davies.

Florida 70, BYU 61

4. Wisconsin vs. 8. Butler-I think these teams are evenly matched, as both teams are physical teams who like to play in the half-court. I would be very suprised if this winner of this game would reach 60 points. I like Wisconsin in a squeaker.

Wisconsin 55, Butler 53

West Region:
1 Duke vs 5 Arizona-The return of Kyrie Irving means that Duke is a more terrifying and complete team. I would be suprised if Arizona pulled this one out.

Duke 74, Arizona 62

2. San Diego State vs. 3 Connecticut-While I think San Diego State has the inside game to match UConn's, I do not think that it can stop Kemba Walker

Connecticut 72, San Diego State 66

Later, I will make picks for Friday's games.
