John Treloar has the inside track.
Everyone has an NCAA Tournament bracket pool going. So when the Final Four rolls around, the smoke clears and you begin to see who has the best chance of winning the pool.
The team bracket commissioner – shooting guard Mike Gansey - is still holding out out hope WVU wins it all so he can brag that he was the only one to pick the Mountaineers to take home the national title. Gansey starred for the Mountaineers when they reached the Elite Eight in 2005.
However, he told before Tuesday’s practice Treloar has Duke and Michigan State meeting in the championship game. True to form, Duke will take on WVU in one national semifinal while Michigan State faces Butler in the other.
All Treloar needs to is have one of those two teams win and he’ll win the bracket pool. Remember, he was an assistant for two previous Final Four teams at Indiana and LSU before becoming Erie’s coach so Treloar knows college hoops.
But who will take it if neither Duke or Michigan State advance to Monday’s title game?
The rookie forward from Gannon has WVU playing in the title game. So if the Mountaineers upset top-seeded Duke and Butler upsets Michigan State, Goldcamp will win the bracket pool.
