Ohio State's men's basketball team will start the tournament ranked #1 in the country and the University of Connecticut's women's team is also ranked #1. Both also won their conference championships. The UConn men's team won the Big East tournament and the Ohio State women won the Big Ten championship. So, I have four good chances for favorite teams to go deep into the tournament.
Although I have lived in Hartford for three decades, I worked in Ohio for six years, until last summer. My loyalties are divided. I expect to log many hours in front of the TV in the coming weeks, changing my shirts back and forth from blue-and-white to scarlet-and-gray. Go Huskies! Go Buckeyes!
