Newitt Nuggets on the NCAA

This will hit the air after South Dakota State plays Syracuse in the NCAA Women’s Tournament, BUT… if the Jacks are going to win a second round game and get to the Sweet 16 for the first time, THIS is the year to do it.

North Dakota State is done for the year after a loss to #1 overall seed Duke in the NCAA Men’s Tournament, BUT… the Bison should be rightfully proud of a play-in game appearance and another tournament win for the program and the Summit League.

Brad Newitt was a student manager at Kansas State back in the day. His Wildcats were upset in the first round, but that is what happens when madness and injuries collide.

Former Kansas State coach and current Oregon coach Dana Altman has his 12-seeded team in the Sweet 16, BUT… can they pull off another upset against upset-prone Virginia?

Former University of South Dakota star Matt Mooney and his Texas Tech team could/should/will get by Michigan, and then could/should/might get by Gonzaga to make it to the Final Four.

Gonzaga is over-rated… we think.

And… half the country has Duke winning the whole thing. Can the Blue Devils recover after the scare against Central Florida, or are the Dukies just too young to git 'er done?
