MARCH MAYHEM: Final Four Predictions!
« on: March 01, 2018, 08:13:39 am »
So I am assuming that everyone will fill out their bracket at http://d3challenge.com/!

With that said, I think it would be fun to have everyone post their Final Four teams onto this tread and we can see if we have any elite D3 minds that get all 4. If we want to make a game out of it, we could rank them 4-1 based on your confidence level, like the MIAA predictions do. The tie breaker would be picking the national champion, and whatever team advanced further would get the edge.

Just let me know what you guys think, pretty easy concept so hopefully we can get a lot of participation!

I went with...
4- Whitman
3- John Carroll
2- Williams
1- Hamilton
with Whitman beating John Carroll in the final. Really not confident in any of them but that was how it went and better to not second guess my picks from Monday.

I had Williams, Augustana, WashU, and Swarthmore.  I had Swarthmore-York in the sectional final and felt like Swat might get them since its a rematch.  That's the one that seems most far-fetched, but almost any team is liable to be upset this year.

I think I picked York in the D3hoops.com preview - I think they're pretty good, too.

I liked the Williams-Augie Salem rematch - feels crazy to think both teams could get back missing their best player from this season.

I've got WashU winning over Augie.

 I was at that game; it was during semester break with a small crowd. The rematch with a full house should go to York, also.

Yeah, it feels like a toss-up.  I watched the whole game on the webstream and it felt like Swat was better (albeit not by much).  They're also now finally back on form.  Could be a good one if it happens.

I, of course, certainly hope you're both wrong! ;D

Williams - Upper left seems like easiest quadrant to me)
Wooster beats Witt in a NCAC rematch to reach salem
WashU - Brutal pod, great, senior led team able to get past some tough squads.
Cabrini beats Plattsburgh in a super fun Elite 8 showdown of Monroe vs. Patron

4 - Williams
3 - WashU
2 - Wooster
1 - Cabrini

WashU over Wooster for the 'Ship!
