What do you know about B-Ball?

So the boys over at Sportsocracy invited PittGirl to take part in the First Annual Pittsburgh Celebrity Blogger NCAA Pool.  After you get over your fit of hysteria at PittGirl being called a “celebrity” …

So now I’ve got like a jillion games to pick a winner for. And I don’t really follow college ball. And my PittGirl Ball O’ Magic doesn’t have a basketball picking setting. And I really want to win this shit.

So who do I pick, Burghers? Help a girl out and give me some ideas. And do not tell me to pick Pitt to win it all because we all know that is NOT going to happen.

    People always say they pick by mascot or team color but that is a bunch of bs. Normal people don’t know the team color of Wright St or Oral Roberts. I bet they couldn’t even tell you where these colleges were located. I pick by team name. How do you pass up Oral Roberts or Gonzaga? You don’t… thats how!

    I went to Univ. of KY, and even though they are in the tourney, they suck this year – DO NOT PICK THEM! Who did get dissed was NC State, who is playing right now in the NIT (the tourney for those who didn’t make the NCAA Tourney). Anyways, they have a local boy there- McCauley, and he’s a starter for them. He went to Yough and is from West Newton… GO WOLFPACK!

    1. You are a girl
    2. You don’t know shit about college basketball
    3. You will win

    I’ve seen it happen dozens of times. Don’t try to educate yourself.
