Let’s face it, chances are pretty good that your NCAA Tournament bracket is busted. Take heart, you’re not alone in this after all the chaos, fantastic finishes and unexpected outcomes that took place in the first and second rounds. But the good news is it’s not too late to redeem yourself. The Sweet 16 is set, and with it comes a shot at redemption.
So what if you didn’t have Syracuse or Gonzaga or Wisconsin making it to the Sweet 16. Now’s your chance to go all in on the Orange or Bulldogs or Badgers or you can hitch your wagon to another horse. No Michigan State or Kentucky to choose for your Final Four? No problem, as other blue bloods like Kansas, North Carolina, Duke and Indiana are still in the hunt.
