Matt Youmans, Kelly Stewart, Jimmy Vaccaro and Ken Thomson provide analysis, tips and picks for the NCAA Tournament’s round of 64.
It’s tough to predict how far Oklahoma State will go in the NCAA Tournament, but few teams are loaded with better young talent, starting with freshman point guard Marcus Smart. He’s a good bet to go early in this summer’s NBA Draft.
It was not important how many points Shabazz Muhammad scored, at least to those in the sports book, which felt like an overcrowded elevator Thursday. The point spread was the priority, and, after push came to shove, we’ll call it a push.

Writing off a talented team with a good coach is a foolish thing to do in February, and the same is true in the first week of March. So this is not the time to pen an obituary for Arizona, because Sean Miller can coach and he’s working with talent.
If the Los Angeles Lakers play the Miami Heat on a neutral court in Las Vegas, which side would be favored and by how many points? Keep in mind that Kobe Bryant and LeBron James are not playing and both teams consist of guys with little or no NBA experience.
