South basketball stars pick their NCAA men’s tournament champion

South’s Chris Bomba (20) prepares to shoot a free throw.

“Villanova will probably take it, but I want Loyola to win,” senior Chris Bomba said.

South’s Addy Blackwell (21) dribbles against Martinsville’s Pa’ Shence Walker (33).

“I want the underdogs, Loyola, to win,” junior Addy Blackwell said, “But I think Kansas will probably win it all.”

 

 

Although Villanova seems like the frontrunner in the minds of the Panthers, the underdog mentality of Loyola seems to have its fair share of support. The final weekend of March madness will kick off March 31 at 6 p.m.
