If you told me there would only one Jesuit school left in the the NCAA Tourney, I would have wagered it would be Georgetown or Marquette. In fact, I did wager it would have been Georgetown, so that should give you a clue on how to apply your trusted Assistant Editor's predictions for tonight's games:
North Carolina over Washington State – The Cougars have too many foreigners for my liking. Plus I believe Tyler Hansbrough is in cahoots with my bookie.
Louisville over Tennessee – Who will be more sharply dressed, Rick Pitino or Bruce Pearl? Those fine gentlemen always look so nice. Why don't I ever see any of those suits when I'm shopping at Goodwill?
West Virginia over Xavier – Will my disdain for Jesuit schools be enough for me to root for a Bob Huggins-coached team? Yes, yes it will.
UCLA over Western Kentucky – I'd really like to predict a Hilltoppers win, but the doctor says he can't fit any more pins into my femur. I'd also like to see one more weekend of the Bruins' cheer squad. -KD
