There is a good chance that you know a college basketball nerd (or hipster) who told you that you should pick the Belmont Bruins to upset the Georgetown Hoyas in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. That guy probably only saw their one-point loss to Duke at Cameron Indoor Stadium, but trust him! He knows!
Belmont is a very good team that plays at a high pace, scores a lot of points and makes a good deal of three-point shots. This makes them a wonderful candidate for a big upset. Georgetown are very much the big favorites, however, and it will be interesting to see if Belmont actually have an answer for their size.
Game Date/Time: Friday, March 16, 3:10 p.m. ET
Venue: Nationwide Arena, Columbus, Ohio
Announcers: Tim Brando, Mike Gminski and Otis Livingston
