2010 Bracket Series: South Region- 1st Round

The TSX Bracket Series for 2010 continues on with the South Region, Duke is the top seed in this region, but are they really the favorite to come out of this one? Stay tuned and find out, but let’s concentrate on these first round matchups.

(1) Duke vs. (16) Arkansas-Pine Bluff- UAPB’s lack of size is going to be their downfall. Plus they’re playing Duke… Easy win for the Blue Devils.

(8) California vs. (9) Louisville- Cal made the tournament… Louisville will dispatch them easily and as quietly as California made the tournament, they will exit.

(5) Texas A&M vs. (12) Utah State- UPSET ALERT! It will be the battle of the Aggies, and although Texas A&M is the favorite, do not be surprised or sleep on the Aggies from Logan, UT. They have the capability to get into the second round, and make some kind of noise. This is a #5 vs. #12 matchup to watch.

(4) Purdue vs. (13) Siena- UPSET ALERT! Many people have Siena as a dark horse, and this team is very experienced and tourney tested. They are actually the favorite against Purdue ever since Robbie Hummel went down with a torn ACL. Since Hummel’s scary in injury in Minneapolis, the Boilermakers have not been the same. Siena can make the Sweet 16, even possibly the Elite Eight. Only time will tell.

(6) Notre Dame vs. (11) Old Dominion- No upset alert here, the Irish are playing well at the right time, and Luke Harangody is back and the Irish should be the clear cut winners in this game. If the Monarchs win, it will be a surprise.

(3) Baylor vs. (14) Sam Houston State- The Bears have the potential to go on an Elite Eight run themselves, and make noise in the tournament. They should have no trouble with the Southland Conference Champion.

(7) Richmond vs. (10) St. Mary’s- UPSET ALERT!- This is only an upset alert based on seeding. The Gaels are riding high after knocking off the giant Gonzaga, and they look like the better team over the struggling Spiders into this game.

(2) Villanova vs. (15) Robert Morris- Nova has what it takes to make the Final Four. If Robert Morris does beat them in the first round, it would be a colossal upset. Nova in the next round.
