Though the five-seed, Wichita State, is the favorite to win this first-round March Madness game, be on the watch for a scrappy game, as both teams are fighting to stay in the Big Dance.
Virginia Commonwealth University proved itself last year by making it from the First Four play-in games to the Final Four. And the Wichita State Shockers are probably the better selection, as far as conventional methods of evaluation go.
But you can't count VCU out. The Rams are looking for another deep NCAA Tournament run this year, and the school's P.R. team took out a newspaper ad in the Washington Post's Monday edition stating that the school is back to bust your bracket again. Don't be surprised if the Rams do just that if you make the choice to second-guess VCU this year.
