Our March Madness predictions: A sad start to the women's second round

Italee Lucas' 21 points weren't enough for the Tar Heels.

"Our March Madness Predictions: A Prelude to Humiliation...," published March 18, shared brackets assembled by me and my daughter, Lora, for both the men's and women's NCAA basketball tournaments -- and in an update posted yesterday, I noted that our women's picks had proven more accurate than the men's in the first round. Unfortunately, this hasn't proven to be a trend. Last night was catastrophic: We wound up just 4-4, incorrectly guessing that North Carolina would beat Purdue, Auburn would top Rutgers, Florida State would overcome Arizona State and Kansas State would outlast Vanderbilt. Worse, we had both North Carolina and Florida State making it into the Sweet Sixteen -- meaning that these errors will have negative repercussions for at least one more round. Gag.
