East Region – Newark, N.J.

Those who don’t pick Kansas to win the 2011 NCAA Tournament are going with Ohio State (1), a team that will crush UT San Antonio (16). Villanova (9) has no momentum in the sails, making George Mason (8) a likely victor. Rust could send West Virginia (5) to defeat against Clemson (12), while the Kentucky Wildcats (4) will enjoy some Ivy League play in Princeton (13). Xavier (6) beats Marquette (11), which is also what Syracuse (3) will do to Indiana State (14) unless Larry Bird still has eligibility. Speaking of 1980s superstars, the son of Pistons great Isaiah Thomas will lead Washington (7) over Georgia (10). That leaves North Carolina (2) over Long Island (15), although Dobbertean suggests the Blackbirds’ uptempo game will give the Tar Heels a run for their money.

Third round action, Mar. 19-20

In the Southeast, Old Dominion, Kansas State, BYU and Florida advance to the Sweet 16, but only if Old Dominion’s muscle proves to be too much for Pittsburgh. Kansas, Louisville, Purdue and Notre Dame will walk out alive in the Southwest. Western victors in round three will include Duke, upstart Oakland, Connecticut and San Diego State. Ohio State, Kentucky, Syracuse and North Carolina should come out of the East region.

From Regional Semis (Mar. 24-25) to the National Championship

In the Southeast, Kansas State takes Old Dominion in a brawl but loses at the Regional Finals (Mar. 26-27) to Florida. The Southwestern region will have Kansas plowing thorough Louisville and Purdue to reach the National Semis (April 2). Duke will beat Oakland and San Diego State will beat Connecticut, but the Blue Devils’ guards will be too much for the Aztecs in the Regional Final. Finally, Ohio State will win out over Kentucky and Syracuse in the East.
Wrapping it up in the 2011 Final Four and the NCAA Tournament Championship (April 4), Dobbertean sees a Final Four of Ohio State versus Duke and Kansas versus Florida. He says the 2011 national champ will be Ohio State, a pick that appears to differ from the majority of sports media that picks Kansas.
