William Hill 2019 Big Dance Championship Odds

Sunday’s college basketball national championship tournament Round-of-32 drama offered a fitting beginning to the final day of the first weekend. Tennessee, who led Iowa by 25 points in the first half, melted in the second stanza but came away with a six-point overtime victory. William Hill 2019 Big Dance Championship Odds

The second round of the NCAA tournament began with two last year’s Final Four having been eliminated on Saturday. Villanova and Kansas failed to advance to the Round-of-16.

Can Bruce Pearl remain pseudo quiet both in media pressers and avoid another NCAA team scandal? Pearl’s Auburn Tigers advanced to the Sweet 16 with a Saturday victory over the Kansas Jayhawks. And it is not out of the realm of possibility that the school that fired him for team violations, Tennessee, could meet Auburn two weekends from now in the Final Four.

How much fun is it going to be watching Duke Blue Devils forward Zion Williamson square off against 7-foot-6 center Tacko Fall of UCF today. The No. 1 seeded Devil and No. 9 seedlings UCF face off at 5:15 p.m. ET today.

Sunday’s results when this College Basketball National Championship Futures piece went to press:

No. 2 Tennessee 83, No. 10 Iowa 77

The first overtime game of the 2019 NCAA tournament witnessed a lesser Iowa Hawkeyes team nearly complete a 180 and execute the largest comeback in tournament history. Eventually the Big 10 Hawks fell to the better team, the SEC Vols, and received as much help from the officials as possible. Likely avoiding an investigation into a number of the second half calls.

The SEC isn’t a stranger to controversy in terms of officiating crews and their conduct.

Less than two months ago in Tennessee’s 82-80 overtime loss to then-No. 13 LSU there were questions about some calls made by the officials late in the game that many deemed as game-changing. Those questions intensified when a five-year old photo resurfaced of one of the officials from that game, Anthony Jordan, posing with an LSU t-shirt.

Tennessee becomes the fourth SEC team in the Sweet 16, tying the conference record set in 1986 and 1996.
