Inside the Bracket

Advocare Invitational Predictions

  1. Miami - Coach Larranaga has had hot starts to seasons recently and I'm forecasting his team to win this tournament against a highly contested field.  
  2. Gonzaga - I see them having the experience to squeak by Florida in the semifinals, but Miami will come with more energy in the Final.
  3. Iowa State - I see the Cyclones bouncing back from a tough loss to Miami in the Semis to beat Florida for 3rd Place.
  4. Florida - Could certainly win this tournament.  Somebody has to get 4th.
  5. Seton Hall - So many important games will be played in Orlando.  And the 5th-6th place game between the Hall and Stanford will be important for both of these potential bubble teams.
  6. Stanford - Been impressed with this team early, we will learn about them this week.
  7. Indiana State - This field will be too much for the Sycamores, except the 7th place game.  Already had to play two OT games against Ball State and NIU.  
  8. Quinnipiac - Completely overmatched until the game vs. Indiana State.
