The NCAA Men’s Final Four will be played here in Houston April 2-4. But, before we get there half the fun is filling out a bracket. So in honor of the Final Four here are four things to know before you submit your bracket.
1. A #1 seed has never loss to a #16 seeded team. I attended Hampton University and I love my school, but there is no way I’m picking them to beat Duke, and neither should you.
2. A #12 seed almost always beats a #5 seed in the first round. You can set your watch by it.
3. Only once in the history of the tournament have all four #1 seeds made the Final Four. One of them is going down early. Don’t be surprised.
4. No team ranked lower than #8 has made the championship game since 1985. Cinderella teams only goes so far in the tournament so don’t fell in love with them.
Have fun and see if you can beat my picks by playing Hoops Mania.
