If you thought my other picks were risky, wait 'til you see this one. Louisville may be a nine seed, but they have the talent of a four or five.
The first round will be no problem for them as they face Cal. After all, Cal is from the Pac-10.
In the second round I love their matchup against Duke. Considering the recent showing in the tourney by Duke, I feel they won't reach the sweet 16 because they're going to have to face Louisville.
Louisville is big and strong with Samardo Samuels and Terrence Jennings inside. They will out-muscle Brian Zoubeck and Lance Thomas and own the paint.
Plus, Edgar Sosa is playing some great basketball all year. Oh and did I mention they beat Syracuse twice??
Nuff said. (Sorry about no pictures in the last two slides; my computer is not letting me get any right now).
