Casey’s Final Bracket Predictions

We are nearly to Selection Sunday and the list of who’s in and who’s out is changing on a daily basis. That being said, this is the last bracket I’m going to put out. I just can’t keep up, but I feel pretty good about my calls. Of course, now that we are into the conference tournaments, there have been plenty of surprises and upsets costing strong small conference teams their chance to dance. Where will they look for post-season glory? Well in the NIT of course and my attempt at predicting that field will be up here later today. I think. Oh! Also, watch the blog, Facebook page or @interrobangspts this afternoon for a HUGE announcement regarding the Bang and some brand new stuff coming from us.
