NCAA Tournament Picks — First Round South Region

Eds Note — I’m going to try something a little different and make picks for every game of the NCAA Tournament. The games I do actual previews for will have links to Winners and Whiners.

These are the condensed versions of picks for the first round of NCAA Tournament in the South Region. When applicable, there will be a link to the full preview is below. The confidence rating on a scale from 1 to 5 is in parentheses.

Note: The 5/5 does NOT represent the best overall pick of the day’s games when there are multiple games, simply the best pick of each individual game.
