Lunardi's Logic

Wow, the nation's fifth-best offense against its ninth-best defense when Creighton and Alabama tangle in Greensboro. Everyone will be pulling for the Bluejays so Doug McDermott can face his high school teammate, Harrison Barnes, in the next round. I'm going the other because I think the 'Bama defense prevails.

Plus, you can enlist the help of Insider's Bracket Predictor tool to aid your picks.
