Robert Morris Andy Toole handicaps Sweet 16, talks 2019 matchup vs. Pitt
Robert Morris basketball coach Andy Toole joins us once again for our “Breakfast With Benz” podcast. He is our unofficial bracketologist for the 2019 NCAA Tournament.
Both of our Final Fours are still intact after the first weekend. But this is where it gets dicey.
We talk about why Toole likes North Carolina to win it all as opposed to my pick of Duke. We get into what I think is a really difficult call between Virginia and Tennessee in the South. And we kick around why he is so confident in Texas Tech upsetting Michigan out west.
Also, some bracket strategy has come into play through the first weekend. I picked all three 12-seeds that ended up pulling upsets. Yet in one pool, I’m still doing lousy, whereas the other I’ve got a chance to win it all. We examine strategy that sometimes can backfire.
And, we wrap up the Colonials season after their second round loss in the C.I.T. We look ahead to 2019-’20. And we get into the big news about Pitt opening up the school’s UPMC Events Center next year as Robert Morris’ first opponent in the new building.
