March Madness is here, and the first round of the NCAA Tournament tips off today – you can listen to every game of the Tournament on SiriusXM – but most brackets aren’t due until Thursday. And this year, just like any other, the millions who fill out a bracket will be looking for that major first-round upset. Can a 16-seed finally knock off a No. 1 seed. (Spoiler: That answer is no.) How about a 14 over a three-seed? Or a 13-seed moving on to the weekend?
Monday on SiriusXM Bleacher Report Radio, Bleacher Report national college basketball writer Kerry Miller gave his first-round upset special to King Kaufman.
“The other team I’m really in love with is Eastern Washington,” Miller said, the No. 13 seed in the South. “I’ve been in love with Tyler Harvey for months on end. He led the nation in scoring when all was said and done, he put up 42 points in the Big Sky tournament game; he really could be this year’s Stephen Curry when you think back to 2008 Davidson when they made their Elite Eight run. And it certainly doesn’t hurt that they’re matched up with a Georgetown team that’s been disappointing us year-in and year-out for the past near decade.”
How about some advice for later on in the tournament, too? SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio’s Lisa Ann and Yahoo! Sports’ Brad Evans offered up their championship picks on SiriusXM Sports. (And one of them didn’t pick Kentucky!)
