March Madness 2011 First Round Picks

It is really hard to believe with this new system how fast the March Madness 2011 First Round starts, so without further delay here are our March Madness 2011 First Round picks.

Tuesday:

In the Southeast region you have the 16 seeds doing battle, we feel like a gambler with a real problem even talking about a pick for this game (luckily we are just doing brackets) but here goes we take UNC Asheville over Arkansas Little Rock and you can take this pick to the bank as the Asheville shoots better and has played better competition this season.

In the East region you have the 12s doing battle which is actually sort of cool especially when you consider 12s have advanced during March Madness before. We are still trying to figure out how UAB made the tournament so we are going with the Clemson squad that in their last game took UNC to overtime, we suggest you do the same.

Wednesday:

The second of the East Region games features TX San Antonio vs Alabama St. in another thriller of a 16 vs a 16 seed. Both of these teams are on a pretty good roll and really we are happy for them getting to play this game as it should be pretty fair, we are going with TX San Antonio because frankly not many teams shoot the ball any worse than Alabama St.

The Southwest game is one we are really going to try and tune into, right after we locate where Tru TV is. VCU played a pretty tough non conference schedule but they lost like all of those tough games, but then again that was ages ago so can they beat USC? USC played well against the Big Twelve this year beating Texas and taking Nebraska and Kansas to the wire but then again USC took its lumps in the PAC 10 so that might mean we have been giving the Big Twelve to much credit this season. We are going with USC because when they loose it isn't by much but really we think this is a great pairing and we can't wait for the result.
