    Fairmont State over Bowie State: I have my doubts about this one, as strange as it sounds. Bowie usually has a rep of being a giant killer, but this is probably the best Fairmont team in years.
    Kutztown over IUP: Upset special. Two battle tested teams in a game that could come down to the final seconds.
    Shippensburg over Virginia Union: Next...
    Wheeling Jesuit over West Liberty: Upset special #2. For some strange reason, I think Wheeling can pull this one out. They've had West Lib's number over the years (well, relatively speaking at least).

    Above you have IUP selected as the winner but in Round 2 show FSU over Kutztown. For scoring purposes next week, please clarify by editing your selections.

    I'll call us the 'Panel of Experts' of the Atlantic Region. (Save your comments)

    Of those submitting a bracket, here is the breakdown of 'Champion' picks:

    Fairmont State - 3 votes
    West Liberty - 3 votes
    Shippensburg - 2 votes
    IUP - 1 vote
    Wheeling Jesuit - 1 vote

    Interesting 5 of 8 got votes so far ...


    The 'Giant Killers', Bowie State, gaining some upset buzz in Round 1.

    IUP/Kutztown seems to have the bracket the most divided so far for Day 1 (IUP getting 70% of win votes so far)

    Yet, only a 4-3 margin in WLU's favor the last 3 years against the current players when WJU started it 20+ wins per season. Either way, yes, WLU has the long history in the series, but Saturday is all that matters and should be more like the first two matchups than last Saturday that was dictated by hot early shooting.

    WLU is 11-4 in tourney games over the last three years while WJ is 4-4 over that same period. Same three year window, WLU is 6-2 in NCAA Tourney games...WJ is 0-1.

    But, as we saw this afternoon, you can throw those records out the window when these two rivals square off.
