Daddy’s Hangout 2019 NCAA Tournament Prediction

It’s that time of year again and that’s March Madness of course. Honestly, this is my favorite time of the year because anything can happen, and it usually does. Coming into the tournament, Duke is the overwhelming favorite and deservedly so. Zion Williamson is the phenom that everyone talked about and then some. In the ACC tournament, he became the first freshman since Kevin Durant to average 30 points and 10 boards in a conference tournament. There are quite a few other teams that have a gre...

March Madness 2019: NCAA Tournament Midwest Region breakdown

North Carolina was the third team from the ACC to receive a No. 1 seed, following Duke and Virginia. Its selection is slightly more controversial. The two best wins on the Tar Heels’ resume came against the Blue Devils when they were without their best player. In both instances, their archrivals did not have their star freshman Zion Williamson on the floor. Williamson suffered a mild knee sprain in the early minutes during their first meeting in late February when his shoe split and later was ou...
