These games are reserved for the teams who were the “last four in” to this year’s field, but do not discount their potency as bracket-busters. Four teams since the NCAA Tournament field expanded to 68 teams in 2011 have advanced from First Four games to at least the Sweet 16. And at least one team each year except for one has won a game in the main bracket. We even had one team start their Final Four run from this position when VCU used its First Four position as a launchpad in 2011.

The hottest team among all the First Four teams is Texas Southern. The Tigers (16-8) have won 14 of their last 15 games entering Thursday. Led by former Oklahoma State guard Michael Weathers, they have a high-major talent who can keep up with Mount St. Mary’s and anyone it throws his way on defense combined with a nice balance of bigs in John Walker III and Joirdan Nicholas who can hold their own. The Mountaineers have the goods to keep this one interesting, but I trust in Texas Southern’s length and ability to get to the rim so I’m laying the points with the Tigers.. Prediction: Texas Southern 71, Mount St. Mary’s 67 — Kyle Boone
