Here are SB Nation's Chris Dobbertean's NCAA Tournament 2011 bracket predictions for the West Region. Print out your own 2011 March Madness bracket here to fill in your selections:
No. 1 Duke over No. 16 Hampton, as there will be no upset here either.
No. 8 Michigan over No. 9 Tennessee, simply because you have no idea which Volunteer team will show up.
No. 5 Arizona over No. 12 Memphis, though the correct answer is "Whichever team makes the fewest silly mistakes."
No. 13 Oakland over No. 4 Texas, as the Golden Grizzlies' talented bigs will cause the Longhorns real trouble.
No. 11 Missouri over No. 6 Cincinnati, since the Tigers will enter this one with a significant chip on their shoulders.
No. 3 Connecticut over No. 14 Bucknell, even if the Huskies may be tired from their Big East Tournament run.
No. 7 Temple over No. 10 Penn State, giving Fran Dunphy his first Tournament win as boss of the Owls.
No. 2 San Diego State over No. 15 Northern Colorado, giving the Aztecs' a tournament win, finally.
No. 1 Duke over No. 8 Michigan, as the Wolverines' surprising late-season run comes to an end.
No. 13 Oakland over No. 5 Arizona, Derrick Williams against Keith Benson would be a great interior matchup if it comes to pass.
No. 3 Connecticut over No. 11 Missouri, hopefully in an overtime thriller, like the Tigers early season loss to Georgetown.
No. 2 San Diego State over No. 7 Temple, as the Owls don't have the interior depth to compete with the Aztecs.
No. 1 Duke over No. 13 Oakland, ending the Golden Grizzlies' run.
No. 2 San Diego State over No. 3 Connecticut, too many games and too much travel has to catch up to the Huskies eventually.
No. 1 Duke over No. 2 San Diego State, with the Blue Devils' guards being the difference.
