Five bold predictions for the region

The biggest Round of 64 upset will be … Albany over Oklahoma. Give me the Great Danes,who bring with them one of the best stories of the NCAA tournament. Albany's Peter Hooley hit the winning 3-pointer to send the team to the tournament. He left the program earlier this season for an extended hiatus to be with his cancer-battling mother, who died at the end of January.

If Albany beats Oklahoma, it will be one of the three biggest stories of next weekend.

The lowest-seeded school to make the Sweet 16 will be … Providence. Since I have Albany over Oklahoma, I think No. 6 Providence will get by either Boise State or Dayton, then beat Albany. You can make the case no program has a better true 1-2 punch than PC's Dunn and Henton.

I'd like our chances with a second shot at Providence, on a neutral court this time.

In my ESPN bracket, I have us getting to the sweet 16 heh. In the BPF bracket we will do, since I want that little 'title' under my username, I'll likely be less optimistic.

Facing a high seed is never easy...like all years, I'll be ecstatic if we can keep it under 10 and give the world a great showing by UA and the AE.

That would be amazing. And I think possible.

As a program now, I'm past the point of just hoping for "respect" and playing well. I want a win. It would certainly be a very big upset, but we have proven we can play well in big games, and play good teams very tough. By no means am I "expecting" a win, but certainly will not be happy with just playing them tough as in the past. We're a legit mid-major, and we will eventually strike gold in the tournament.
