In a shocking oversight Monday afternoon, ESPNU inadvertently displayed part of the women's bracket on its home page - nearly four hours before the NCAA selection show was scheduled to air.

To maximize your edge in your bracket pool, you need to figure out who those teams are - the teams in the 2019 NCAA bracket being significantly overrated by the general public.

The odds do not mean they are going to win, but they got the odds they have because of the awesome talent they have on the team-just like every other No. 1 seed in the tournament that has come before them.

If Texas Tech make a deep run in the tournament, Culver will be a big reason why.

"We have to respect everyone and fear no one", Williams said.

Although there were debates over whether Williamson should continue to play if he would be able to this season, the main point of it all was: should this have happened in the first place?

National Basketball Association rules dictate that a player must be the age of 19 in order to be draft eligible, and with Williamson being 18 years old, he could not play in the National Basketball Association and took the traditional NCAA route, although it meant not getting compensated for his work on the court. Prior to that, the Duke Blue Devils were the only team that could boast a win over them.

Overrated Pick In The East: No. 3 LSUDespite not winning the SEC tournament as its top seed, LSU is still a popular choice to get to the Sweet 16, with over 61% of the public picking them to make it.

When you think of historically great college basketball teams, the North Carolina Tar Heels, Kentucky Wildcats, and Kansas Jayhawks should definitely come to mind.

"Two things that jump out at me when I look at the losses, particularly at MI and Louisville at home, (is that) I didn't think we were ready to play", Williams said. It's just a matter of going through the whole shoe and finding out what the issues are and then we go solve them again. "I'm going to the game". ACC rival teams UNC and Virginia also nabbed No. 1 seeds, and Gonzaga captured the fourth top spot. In his return against Syracuse on March 14 in the ACC Tournament, Williamson dropped 29 points on 13 of 13 shooting, which broke the ACC Tournament record of 66 years and was the best shooting performance in Duke's history. Now, Zion Williamson and co. are a villain insofar as the uniforms they wear, but there's a likability that this team possesses that is not normal for a Blue Devils squad. "We'll work on things, we'll rest a little and get our bodies back". But despite a 28-2 regular season record, their success did not carry over into the ACC Tournament as the Cavaliers were upset by 4th-seeded FSU in the Semifinals.

Zion Williamson returned, delivered and a Duke team hoping to collect championships claimed the first in its path Saturday night.

"You can't look forward".

Duke is favored on 41 percent of brackets in the ESPN Tournament challenge, with North Carolina second at 14 percent.

It's "Selection Sunday" and the NCAA announced the bracket of all 68 teams that will compete in March Madness starting on Tuesday.
