ESPN experts Jay Bilas, Dick Vitale, Digger Phelps, Hubert Davis make their Final Four picks

You see them on the GameDay set analyzing college hoops games every week, so naturally you’re wondering who they all picked for the NCAA Tournament. Shortly after the brackets were released on Selection Sunday, ESPN experts Jay Bilas, Dick Vitale, Digger Phelps, and Hubert Davis began arguing and analyzing the tournament. With less than an hour to digest everything, the crew didn’t have a chance to predict the entire tournament, but they did make their Final Four selections. Those are below.

Jay Bilas went all chalk, picking all four No. 1 seeds to reach the Final Four. He has Kentucky beating Syracuse in the finals.

Dick Vitale had a few surprise teams in the Final Four. He picked Kentucky, (2) Missouri, (3) Florida State, and North Carolina to reach the Final Four. He picked Kentucky over North Carolina in the final game.

Digger Phelps also picked Florida State to reach the Final Four. He chose Kentucky, Michigan State, (3) FSU, (2) Kansas. He has Michigan St. over Kansas in the final game.

Hubert Davis‘ picks must be prefaced with the fact that he is partial to his alma mater, North Carolina. Like Bilas, Davis went all chalk picking all four No. 1 seeds to reach the Final Four. He has his school North Carolina beating Michigan St. in the final game.

Two analysts have Kentucky winning it all, and two have Michigan St. in the final game. Syracuse seemed to be the least popular top seed among their expert crew. Check back throughout the week to see the NCAA Tournament picks from the LBS staff.

    I would not bet against Tom Izzo in this situation, although Kentucky and North Carolina appear to have the best personnel.

    Digger Phelps, New Mexico Lobos won, how about that Long Beach lost and you ate CROW.  Time for you to retire even as an announcer.  Your picks and words stink.  GO LOBOS
