Why will your team win the NCAA tournament?

By Jonathan Kaplan

With the NCAA tournament set to tip-off on Thursday, we asked 12 Dynamo players whose alma maters are represented in the tournament, why or how their team can win it all. Not surprisingly, some players were more confident in their team than others. It's also not too late to change your bracket based on the commentary of our March Madness experts.

Corey Ashe North Carolina Because Carolina is the best...
Tyler Deric North Carolina We will win because we have the best looking cheerleaders.
Alex Dixon North Carolina UNC is going to win because they are getting hot at the right moment. Even though we lost in the ACC tournament final, we are heating up. PJ Hairston is hitting the threes. I think we are going to surprise some teams and make that run to the championship.
Brad Davis St. Louis Only way we can win it all is if we bring back Larry Hughes.
Brian Ching Gonzaga We have a great coach, a great system and a great fan base. It's a good school and I think we deserve one.
Calen Carr California We are going to have to lie, cheat, steal and rob our way past every game, but I think we can do it.
Kofi Sarkodie Akron Because it's Akron...
Eric Brunner Ohio State We have a quality team that is competing every year. We beat Indiana at Indiana, which shows we can play on the road. We have great players and we're Buckeyes.
Jason Johnson VCU Over the last three years, I don’t know if I was the good luck, but they have been having quite a good stretch. This year, I had a chance to go to a couple games before I left college. But absolutely, VCU is going all the way. ALL THE WAY! VCU!
Omar Cummings Cincinnati I think we're a good team. If we can go on a good run, we can surprise some people.
Will Bruin Indiana We're the best team in the NCAA tournament. We will win by playing good Indiana basketball on the defensive end.
Tally Hall San Diego St. We will win because no one expects us to.
