Steve Believes: NCAA Men’s Elite 8, Day 2

Yesterday on Steve Believes, I made predictions for the first half of the Elite 8 matchups. And as to how I did with those predictions, well I went 1-1, with an incorrect prediction for Gonzaga.

And now that they’re settled, it’s time to make my predictions for Day 2 of the Elite 8 Round for the 2019 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.

The matchups are listed via the bullet points below and are each accompanied by a brief yet detailed description:

  • #5 Auburn Tigers Vs. #2 Kentucky Wildcats-The absence of Chuma Okeke will be too much for Auburn to overcome in this all-SEC tilt. And for that reason, I like Kentucky to get a fourth Final Four in the John Calipari era.
  • #2 Michigan State Spartans Vs. #1 Duke Blue Devils-The most reviled program in the history of NCAA Men’s Basketball won not one but two games that they should have lost. However, the third time won’t be the charm, because I see Michigan State locking it down and not allowing Duke to escape this time around.

Well, that’s it for today’s edition of Steve Believes: The 2019 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. Tune in on Saturday, as I will make my predictions for the Final Four matchups. So until then, so long everybody!
