Starting this week, 65 college basketball teams will battle it out in the most exciting tournament in all of sports! We got a preview for March Madness!

Overview

There is plenty to get excited about for this years NCAA Tournament. This is definitely the year for big conferences. The Big East got eight teams in, the Big 12, Pac 10 and SEC each got six teams representing. The four number one seeds belong to Memphis, Kansas, North Carolina and UCLA. This single-elimination tournament will last three weeks and the Final Four will be held in San Antonio, Texas in the Alamodome.

Possible Upsets

Everybody knows that every year there are going to be some upsets. Here are five teams you need to pay attention to!
  • Baylor - Eleven-seed Baylor has played well against the best teams in the Big 12. Look for them to upset six-seeded Purdue, who struggled in their Big 10 tournament.
  • Temple - It has been a few years since Temple had a team that had potential to go deep in the tournament. Look for the 12th-seeded Owls to upset the fifth-seeded Michigan State team.
  • Kansas State - Possibly the first pick in this year's NBA Draft, Kansas State's super freshman Michael Beasley and his 11-seed Kansas State Wildcats should give number six USC a run for their money.
  • Villanova - The Villanova Wildcats are a lot better than their number 12 seed suggests. They may have more talent than the fifth-seeded Clemson Tigers, who are a little inexperienced in post-season play.
  • South Alabama - Tenth-seed, South Alabama, has enough size to compete against Butler. Plus South Alabama has been playing their best ball these past few weeks.
  • Five Players to Watch

  • Kevin Love - This super freshman has a lot riding on his shoulders, as his UCLA Bruins are the early on favorite to win it all. Can this 19 year-old deliver or will he choke?
  • Stephen Curry - Last year, this sharp shooter nearly got his Davidson Wilcats out of the first round over Maryland. Look for this sophomore sensation to not only get out of the first round but also lead his team to the Sweet 16.
  • Tyler Hansbrough - This tough-as-nails competitor has the heart and determination to lead his North Carolina Tar Heels straight to the championship!
  • Brook Lopez - This seven-foot big man for Stanford should prove to be the best big man in the Tournament. He averaged 19.2 points, 8.5 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game for the Cardinals this past season.
  • Eric Gordon - Another sensational freshman, Eric Gordon of Indiana has all the makings of a future NBA star. He can flat out score the ball - he averaged 21.3 points per game this year.



  • Kidzworld Prediction: We predict that the Final Four will be made up of all number one seeded teams. That means North Carolina, Kansas, Memphis and UCLA will be the last four standing. In the championship, North Carolina will top UCLA is a close 77-75 game!
