Sam is a little bit worried that Duke won't be able to come back from its loss to South Carolina in time to make the Final Four, for one. Also, they chat about Villanova getting a tough draw and losing to Wisconsin, the rest of a wild East region that is now wide open, some really bad officiating, bad NBA Draft takes, and a few words on every Sweet 16 team.  GT sponsors today are MyBookie, where you can get a 50% first time deposit bonus by using the promo code "THEORY", and SeatGeek, where you can get a $20 rebate by using the promo code "GAMETHEORY" in the settings tab.

In the latest Game Theory episode, Sam Vecenie chats with Mike Rutherford about their favorite NCAA Tournament memories, both of which have occurred in the last four years. Then, they go reasonably in-depth on Louisville, one of the most interesting teams in the NCAA Tournament due to their defensive talent, athleticism, and the matchup problems they can pose. Next, they get into an in-depth breakdown of some Cinderellas, including UNC-Wilmington, Middle Tennessee, Winthrop, East Tennessee State, and others. What do you need to know before picking upsets in your bracket pool? Finally, they close by noting how there have been fewer buzzer beaters this year than last, hoping for that to change as soon as possible.  Our sponsors today are MyBookie, where you can get a 50% first time deposit bonus by using the promo code "THEORY", and SeatGeek, where you can get a $20 rebate by using the promo code "GAMETHEORY" in the settings tab.

In this Game Theory episode, Sam Vecenie chats with Mark Titus from over at The Ringer about a variety of topics related to college basketball heading into the NCAA Tournament.  First, they talk about Frank Mason, and the important release of BIFM 2 by RedHead. Also, do they know more about our favorite basketball players because of the social media era?  Second, they talk about the state of Ohio State basketball? Neither of them are in favor of getting rid of Thad Matta, but then again they're not exactly biased. More than that though, how good is this program? What can be done to change its fortunes? How far away is Ohio State from making the NCAA Tournament again?  Then, they ask the question that is taking college basketball by storm: IS DUKE BACK? Really, then they chat about how this Duke basketball season has possibly been the most interesting of any college basketball season in the last decade. Finally, they chat about how insufferable the NBA vs. college basketball fan argument can be, as well as give their picks for the most likely teams to make the Final Four as well as the teams we like more than most other people do.  You can use the promo code "GAMETHEORY" to get a $20 rebate from Seat Geek.
