我们要求我们的作家四个填写自己的支架，并解释他们的最大冷门选秀权，最终四强，他们认为会赢得这一切谁。 A consensus emerged regarding which team will take the cake, and the pick will not likely be a popular one among readers.
冷门：有很多像在12和13号种子线，但在许多情况下，胃部效力的对决扼杀。 Virginia isn’t susceptible to Wilmington. Notre Dame isn’t vulnerable against Princeton. Nevada is hot, but Iowa State is hotter. And the weak No. 3s, Florida State and Baylor, got kind draws. The one 12-5 upset I love is Middle Tennessee State over Minnesota (and Butler). I’m hesitantly going with East Tennessee State over Florida too. And I considered Vermont over Purdue, but didn’t have the guts. In the second round, I love Vandy over Gonzaga, and think Wichita State could take down mighty Kentucky.
四强：在东方，维拉诺瓦主场迎战杜克将是史诗; the Blue Devils just have a tad more firepower. In the Midwest, both Michigan and Louisville could give Kansas a run, but the home crowd will be a factor. In the South, North Carolina-UCLA is a toss-up, but I’m intrigued by the possibility of UCLA turning up its intensity on defense. The West is the most difficult region to predict; I think Notre Dame gets on a roll and makes it all the way to Phoenix.
国手：它是如此，所以很难去反对杜克大学的那一刻，但如果有一个团队，可以中和杰森塔图姆，卢克肯纳德和K教练的武器库的其余部分，它的堪萨斯。 I can see Frank Mason III propelling the Jayhawks on a legacy-defining run and outdueling Duke in the title game.
冷门：让我先从一个热门冷门挑我没有看到的情况。 UNC Wilmington is really good, but slow-paced, fundamentally-sound Virginia is a nightmare matchup for a team that wants to force turnovers and get out in transition. If the Cavs are kryptonite for Louisville, what will they be for former Rick Pitino assistant Kevin Keatts’ team? Middle Tennessee over Minnesota is the 12-5 upset pick I believe in most, but I’ll throw out another one since Henry is already all over that. Creighton isn’t the same without injured point guard Maurice Watson and Oregon is a bit vulnerable without forward Chris Boucher. Surging Rhode Island has a good chance to win a game and an outside shot to win two.
四强：威斯康星州和SMU是最有能力的出轨在东势维拉诺瓦公爵对决的球队，但不要对这种事情发生计数。 I’ll take the Blue Devils to win a classic pitting two of the five best teams in the field. In the West, Arizona is peaking at the right time with Allonzo Trier back and Lauri Markkanen heating up. This isn’t Sean Miller’s best team but it might be his best chance at a Final Four. North Carolina has to be the pick in the East if only because its draw to the Elite Eight is so much more favorable than UCLA’s or Kentucky’s. To me, the Midwest is the region with the potential for the most carnage. Kansas and Louisville both have difficult second-round games and Nevada and Vermont are live underdogs. Consider this a tentative vote of confidence for Kansas.
国手：我们能不能有第一次北卡罗莱纳州杜克冠军的比赛？ Yup. The Tar Heels hold up their end of the bargain bludgeoning guard-heavy Kansas in the paint and the Blue Devils lean heavily on Jayson Tatum and Luke Kennard to barely survive Trier, Markkanen and a heavily pro-Arizona crowd. That sets up a classic title game that ends with Duke finally validating its preseason hype and delivering Mike Krzyzewski’s sixth national title.
冷门：11号泽维尔具有压倒第6号马里兰州的潜力 – 特别是在防守端。 The Terps have struggled with defensive boards while the Musketeers have proven to be a good rebounding team. The Terps have lost six out of their last 10 games, so unless they can get hot early and stay hot, Xavier could take that one easily.
四强：Gonzaga大学击败亚利桑那一旦本赛季已经和具有较强的SmackDown在圣玛丽在WCC决赛在途中到31-1常规赛。 I should disclose that my younger sister is a student there, so I may have some bias. But I believe that Nigel Williams Goss’ hot hand and Przemek Karnowski will give the Zags what they need to make their first Final Four appearance in program history.
国手：再次，老K教练的军队已经证明了自己是几乎不可阻挡。 Yes, they have had some bumps along the way but have started to get back to their dominant Blue Devil ways with March wins over North Carolina (twice), Clemson, Louisville and Notre Dame. If they keep up, nothing stands in Duke’s way.
冷门：它是更诱人的选择一个灰姑娘在这样一个赛季，没有真正统治力的球队。 Alas, it seems as if even the susceptible high seeds received rather favorable draws. I have little faith in Baylor but just can’t see the Bears losing to No. 14 New Mexico State. Likewise with No. 3 Florida State (vs. No. 14 Florida Gulf Coast). As far as the first round goes, the lowest-ranked teams I have advancing are No. 11 Xavier over No. 6 Maryland (and over No. 3 FSU in the ensuing round), and No. 10 Wichita State over No. 7 Dayton, because let’s face it, no one believes the Shockers are really a 10-seed. (While Dayton has left a lot to be desired in falling behind big in two losses entering the tourney.) The real fun comes in the Sweet 16, where No. 5 Virginia gets revenge on No. 1 Villanova after letting one slip away in Philly in January. The pressure seems to have died down a bit on Tony Bennett’s program, for a change, and I just think the Wildcats’ tight rotation will at some point catch up to them.
四强：西部地区是最迷人的，因为它包含可以说是三个最好的教练从来没有做出最后四：迈克·布雷，马克很少和肖恩米勒。 All three have a great chance to make it to Phoenix but I ultimately go with Miller’s Arizona team, given the easier road it will likely have to navigate. I think Duke gets a scare from underrated SMU in the Sweet 16 but eventually survives the East by overwhelming Virginia. UCLA and Kansas are the best teams in the South and Midwest, respectively, although my heart still aches for Oregon, which I had been wanting to pick all season long before Chris Boucher tore his ACL this past weekend.
国手：杜克赢得它，如果没有其他原因，而不是因为我会踢自己，如果蓝魔赢，我不去接他们。 They have the best coach and ultimately the best players, a great mix of young and old that reminds me of their 2015 title team. (Which, I should add, I correctly picked to win it all that year. … Over Wisconsin, no less.) UCLA is unstoppable when firing on all cylinders, but that’s asking more of the defensively-challenged Bruins over a six-game span than it is of Duke. The Blue Devils win their sixth natty, and America becomes even more divisive. Good times.
