NCAA Tournament overtakes One Direction – Tickifieds Top 10

2013-NCAA-Tournament-logoAfter nearly a full year dominating the Tickifieds Top 10, someone finally took down the king One Direction.  This week, the NCAA Tournament upset the boy wonder band 1D to claim the top spot in this weeks Top 10 list.  To celebrate this glorious occasion, we decided to do a special two part blog post.  Not only will we detail the top overall events this week, we will also break down the Top 10 NCAA Tournament Games that will take place this week.  This includes the opening round “First Four” as well as the 2nd and 3rd round match ups that will take place on March 21st and March 22nd.

Top NCAA Tournament Sessions (Rounds 2 and 3)

1.  Detroit Session 1:  Valpo vs MSU and Memphis vs TBD

I may be a bit biased, but demand for Session 1 of the Detroit NCAA Tournament games has been crazy.  It’s really not that much of a surprise given the fact that Michigan State virtually has a home game but Valparaiso also travels well.  The Crusaders are just a state away and will be looking to pull off another big upset with the Bryce Drew coached team.

2.  Lexington Session 1:  Marquette vs. Davidson & Butler vs. Bucknell

This session is packed with typical underdog schools all with a reasonable chance at making it to the Sweet 16.  Throw in the fact that the Butler Bulldogs are looking strong and Indianapolis is only a few short hours away, and it makes perfect sense that this session comes in at #2.

3.  Kansas City Session 2:  Kansas vs. Western Kentucky & North Carolina vs. Villanova

Again, here we have another top team from a major conference with a relative home game.  KC Session 2 is drawing strong demand from Jayhawk fans.  Having North Carolina doesn’t hurt either!

4.  Dayton Session 2:  Notre Dame vs. Iowa State & Ohio State. vs. Iona

Dayton Ohio is the hub of college basketball right now.  the tournament kicks off the “first four” there today and follows up with a dynamite session that includes in-state team Ohio State and Notre Dame.

5.  Detroit Session 2:  VCU vs. Akron & Michigan vs. South Dakota State

The Tournament selection committee was kind to the Michigan Big 10 schools.  Not only do you have the Michigan Wolverines with a relative home game in Auburn Hills but you also have fan favorite VCU all in the same session.

6.  Philadelphia Session 2:  Georgetown vs. Florida Gulf Coast & San Diego State vs. Oklahoma

This one is a bit of a surprise as the only school within reasonable traveling distance are the Georgetown Hoyas.  Nonetheless, this session is drawing considerable interest…

7.  Salt Lake City Session 1:  Gonzaga vs. Southern & Pittsburgh vs. Wichita State

Not a whole lot to be excited about here outside of #1 seeded Gonzaga.  The Zags are finally starting to get the respect they deserve and were rewarded with a game within a reasonable distance from Spokane.

8.  San Jose Session 2:  UNLV vs. California & Syracuse vs. Montana

Outside of Syracuse, all teams in the San Jose Session 2 are relatively big schools within driving distance to San Jose.  Even more interesting is that each of these games should be really competitive!

9.  Lexington Session 2:  Louisville vs. TBD & Colorado State vs. Missouri

As the #1 overall seed, the Louisvile Cardinals were rewarded with a game in their home state.  Adding further interest to the mix is neighboring Missouri taking on Colorado State.

10.  Austin Session 2:  UCLA vs. Minnesota & Florida vs. Northwestern State

There has not been much interest in the Austin Sessions of the NCAA Tournament and probably for good reason- Not really any local nor very good teams.  However, UCLA and Florida do have strong fan bases that have kept Session 2 on our radar.
