Michigan State is ESPN's unanimous pick to win it all this year, but first they must get by a solid Delaware Blue Hens club. The winner will face Cincinnati or Harvard.

Prediction: Delaware was a trendy lower seed pick before the seeding was complete, but unfortunately the Blue Hens are running into a buzz-saw in Michigan State, who finally seem to be putting it all together down the stretch this season. Sparty looked awfully impressive in their Big Ten Tournament run, and Tom Izzo gets the most out of his teams in March. Delaware might keep it respectable, but don't expect them to bust many brackets.
