NCAA Tournament Bracket Predictions: Damian Lillard picks Weber State to win it all (Photo)


The NCAA March Madness tournament is this week and that means it’s that busy time of year when millions of people are cutting back on their load at work to focus on crunching numbers to produce the perfect bracket. Quicken Loans upped the ante this year with their boastful $1 Billion prize pool, but just about everyone in the country fills out a bracket if for nothing else than the fun of it.

One guy who filled out his bracket and got bold with his picks is Portland Trail Blazers star point guard Damian Lillard. The Weber State product has shocked no one with his prediction — picking No. 16 seed Weber State to emerge from the West and win the entire tournament.

Lillard’s choice really shouldn’t shock anyone, but the accompanying photo that was posted by USA Today’s FTW blog just makes the pick even better. The look of sheer swagger that Lillard has holding up his bracket is golden and makes us remember why we love March Madness so much.
