East Region is Up - Projections and Analysis


EaIndiana takes the top seed.  They have been incredibly good all year, but they do have some weaknesses, as were exposed in their two games against Wisconsin.  I think Cal will beat UNLV and then have a tough game against Syracuse here too.  Miami is the two seed and they get Pacific in the first round.  The Fighting Illini get Colorado in the first round and I see the Buffaloes winning this one.

My Sweet Sixteen is Indiana, Syracuse, Marquette, and Miami.  In the Elite Eight, I see Syracuse and Marquette advancing and Syracuse heading to the Final Four.  With those final two games being played in Washington D.C., and seeing how well Syracuse travels, especially down the coast.
