>> erika, i have to be here my bracket is in pencil and eraser is worn out. everybody out there this is for entertainment purposes only use you're raiser. >> we want to start with surprises, were you surprised at all getting to the sweet 16. >> i'm shock a little bit disappointed. i think villanova have have a great year. i fully expect that they would go through. they caught a bad match up, and had a difficult night last week when they played nc state. that is a surprise. the whole east bracket not so much virginia lose to go michigan state but it is difficult when you don't see number one and number two seed in those brackets. >> but first lets start off here with we're talking about notre dame and wichita state. i understand notre dame has within of your alumni. >> from st. joes prep. >> yes. >> you are calling for an upset with wichita state. >> i think wichita state has a chip on their shoulder. they executed it last week
6:47 am
against kansas in a game they could not get scheduled. i think notre dame has had a remarkable year but their size will be a factor. people should watch the wichita state back court. van fleet and baker are two of the best in the country. >> heavily favored for kentucky. >> west virginia has caused a little bit of the stir where one of their freshman called kentucky out and said he is guarantying that kentucky will be 36-one after tonight. i don't see that. >> but you see kentucky moving for. >> i do have kentucky moving forward. >> moving down to the west, talking about wisconsin, north caroline wisconsin going forward. >> remarkable story because we have a local by coaching wisconsin bo ryan from chester. replied at chester high school. legendary in delaware county. he has moved his team last year final four this year a number one seed. i see them vaning to the elite eight. in this xavier/air zone game we have a remarkable kind of a connection. xavier coach chris mack worked for the arizona coach sean
6:48 am
miller at xavier when they were in the a-10. we have had a chance to play against them. this is a great story. xavier being a jesuit school all of the st. joseph's are back them but arizona has great size and tremendous focus. when people watch air zone off to see how focused how they are on the the task at hand. i think this will be a fabulous game. wisconsin with the player of the year in frank commence ki arizona, tremendous size and defense. tj mcconnell lead the team as a point guard. i see arizona moving for. >> we talk about nc state with the upset with villanova. you have them beating louisville. >> i think louisville has maxed out here. they lost a great player during the year. they had to suspend a kid put him off the team. they have done a remarkable job. they were in trouble against uc your vine a team you favored along the way. >> i pulled for them. >> northern iowa really was an upset to me because northern
6:49 am
iowa had a really strong year. louisville plays zone defense. but i think north carolina state getting over lsu where they were dead in the what the other, they won that game. they beat a better villanova team but they were better for those 40 minutes north carolina state. just a feeling. nc state beat louisville at louisville. i see them moving forward, in that game. >> upset here michigan state and oklahoma. >> but michigan state it is because of their jockey. their head coach is a remarkable guy who will end up in the basketball hall of fame tom izzo. oklahoma has a tremendous starting five. michigan state will wear them down in, my opinion, i don't watch many of these games because i'm out recruiting all the time but do i catch them every once in a while. michigan state is having this ability to wear you done physically and i think that at the end of the day that is what they will their depth will wear down oklahoma. >> you have them all going to
6:50 am
the final four last but not least in the the south this is what we had in common, gonzaga beating ucla. >> i think their age, they are an older team gonzaga. they have a kid off the bench basketball kid will remember his fatter from his days in the nba but they have a 7-foot guy, they have willcher transferred from kentucky and a number of have guys who are a year-older because they transferred into gonzaga. i think their age and size at the end of the day, the duke team is brilliant young players, a ameal jefferson a local player, playing for duke but gonzaga's size at the end of the day carries the the day. >> we have gonzaga going to the final four. you have air zone, kentucky. so many people favoring kentucky. who do you think. >> i hope john calipari is not watching, i like air zone. we have arizona going to the final. gonzaga and michigan state. >> i'm a big fan of both
6:51 am
coaches but i'm tag gonzaga. >> yeah. >> we play them and they are remarkable. up close and personal they were remarkable. >> this is one you and i have in common now. arizona, gonzaga. >> game has already been played, this game was played in early questions at arizona arizona won a close game and at the even of the game monday night in indianapolis arizona cuts down the basket. >> let's circle that. >> we have arizona taking it home. phil, thanks for coming in and joining us. >> pens also only. >> thanks very much. >> thank you. >> nicole, back to you. >> i like the pencil rule. 6:51. there is a lot coming up, nora o'donnell joins us live from new york with that preright. >> good morning. we have a report of one of the pilots was locked out of the cockpit before the germanwings flight crash. how could that happen? we will look at. that the plus we're on the scene in oklahoma with the dramatic rescues after
