    Our March Madness predictions: One (and a half?) winners out of two

    The March Madness predictions made by my daughter Lora and me proved to be much less than spot-on. We haven't heard the final results of our pool yet, but I'm certain we finished far out of the money. But both last two games in the NCAA men's and women's basketball season were satisfying to watch, e ... More >>

    Our March Madness predictions: The end is near

    The March 18 blog "Our March Madness Predictions: A Prelude to Humiliation..." shared NCAA men's and women's basketball picks made by my daughter Lora and me, which fell short of flawless.

    Our March Madness predictions: The men's bracket is busted

    The NCAA men's basketball bracket assembled by my daughter Lora and me and shared in the March 18 blog "Our March Madness Predictions: A Prelude to Humiliation...," was looking shaky prior to the beginning of weekend play.

    Our March Madness predictions: Savaged by (Baylor) Bears

    Louisville's late burst plowed under Kelli Griffin's Baylor squad. The women's NCAA basketball bracket put together by my daughter Lora and me isn't quite as calamitous as our men's picks, but close. The big blow: Baylor, which we designated to reach the finals, went dry late in the second half of ... More >>

    Our March Madness predictions: The women's first round went well -- but what happened to Tennessee?

    Although most fans who fill out brackets during NCAA basketball tournament season only focus on the men's teams, the contest through the Archdiocese of Denver that my daughter Lora and I have participated in during recent years gives the women equal billing. That's a good thing from the perspective ... More >>
