EVEN THE president is picking Michigan State, and all he ever does is go with 1-seeds. Such is the fate of the Delaware Blue Hens, who won the Colonial Tournament, earned an NCAA bid for the first time since 1999 and now have a date in the NCAA dance with Godzilla. The Hens are two-touchdown underdogs because smart money in March usually follows Michigan State and its coach, Tom Izzo. "We don't really worry about the name on the other team's jersey, we just play against them," Delaware guard Davon Usher said.

I DID NOT think Kentucky could lose in 2012. I did not think Louisville could lose in 2013. My eyes told me both would win the championship. This year is more challenging so I did this more analytically. I like teams that win with offense and defense, preferably in concert. So, even on a bad shooting day for them or a hot shooting day from an opponent, they can still win. Click here to see Dick Jerardi's picks for this year's NCAA tournament. My test for a potential national champion is that a team must be top 20 in offensive and defensive efficiency.

The room fell silent. Everyone knew that Delaware's name would pop up on the television screen eventually, but through each commercial break, the blue-and-yellow-clad fans packed inside the Carpenter Sports Building for the Blue Hens' selection-show viewing party stayed on the edge of their seats. The crowd let out a collective sigh of relief as Delaware (25-9), the Colonial Athletic Association champion, avoided a matchup with Louisville. But when the No. 13 Blue Hens saw their name appear under fourth-seeded Michigan State (26-8)

The top-seeded Wolverines (25-8) were led by Big Ten player of the year Nik Stauskas with 17 points and Derrick Walton Jr. had 11, but the league's regular-season champs had their seven-game winning streak come to an end.   SEC Florida 61, Kentucky 60 - The No. 1 Gators capped a perfect run through the Southeastern Conference when the Wildcats failed to get off a shot on their final possession, allowing Florida to escape with a victory in Atlanta.

Juwan Johnson said he never had a favorite college football team as a youngster. That changed Sunday. Johnson, a wide receiver at Glassboro and one of New Jersey's top recruits in the Class of 2015, made an oral commitment Sunday to attend Penn State on a football scholarship. "The people up there are great," Johnson said Sunday on his way home from State College. "The facilities are great and I had great chemistry with everybody there. " Johnson, a four-star recruit by Rivals.com, said he made the commitment to Penn State coach James Franklin during a visit to the campus Sunday.

IF THE CONFERENCE tournaments are a guidepost, get ready for some serious NCAA chaos. The No. 1 seed in 14 of the 21 one-bid leagues with tournaments will be playing in the NIT, gone early in their tournament and/or beaten and sometimes badly beaten on their home floor in championship games. The Ivy League continues to avoid the craziness by the quaint notion that its best team all season should represent it in the NCAA Tournament. So Harvard is back in the NCAA for a third straight year.

Line up Kyle Shurmur on the field with his La Salle football teammates, and the Division I quarterback prospect won't stand out, at least not for his upper body. But put him among his swimming teammates on the pool deck, and you get a sense of why Explorers swim coach Frank Lichtner says he's a "monster. " Shurmur is lean, as the others are, but he packs more muscle on his 6-foot-4 frame, especially high. "He's really big," Lichtner said. "When he turns around, his back, you can't even see around him. " The quarterback can flat-out swim, too. And his strength is a big part of what he has accomplished in his first season of PIAA competition, Lichtner says.
