Bilas: Picks for the whole bracket

As you may know by now, I am asked to fill out my bracket in less than five minutes on the "Bracketology Selection Show." Then, after Bracketology, I ran from one studio to another and hosted "SportsCenter" with John Buccigross.

I had no time to consult the BPI, other analytics or my learned colleagues; instead, I had to rely upon my vast basketball knowledge and gigantic and powerful gray matter.

After the show, I had time to dive even more deeply into the bracket. So, here you have it: my more-than-five-minute bracket. If you choose to copy it, it will make you rich beyond your wildest dreams.

Round of 64

1 Kentucky over 16 Manhattan:

Manhattan will beat Hampton in Dayton, Ohio, and the Wildcats will blast Wildcats alum Steve Masiello and his Jaspers. A No. 16 seed has never beaten a No. 1, and it won't happen here. The over/under on dunks will match the combined seeds.
