It’s safe to say that no one aced their bracket in this year’s upset-heavy NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. A few weeks back, Asher Roth invited a few celebs pals, including Taylor Swift and Devin the Dude, and hundreds of other bracketologists to compete in his Asher Roth’s 2010 NCAA Tournament Pick ’Em League.
Everyone thought they had the inside track on who would be cutting down the net in Indianapolis.
Fast-forward a couple of weeks and a dozen upsets later, and we find Duke, Michigan State, West Virginia and Butler in the Final Four. MTV News recently caught up with a humbled Asher, who partnered with the sports-clothing company No Mas for the league, to see who he thought would win the big dance.
“You know what? America’s team is Butler,” Roth said. “I hate Duke. I’m sorry. Go ahead and hate me, but I hate Duke. I can’t get down. To me, that’s just the easy way out. Michigan State just seems to have the charm with them, so you know what? I’m going to go ahead and say — well, West Virginia too, man.”
Asher eventually decided on the Michigan State Spartans. He said the team out of East Lansing would surprise hoops fans and continue to play solid basketball, despite losing point guard Kalin Lucas to an injury. Roth did admit that he might not be the right guy to ask, however.
“My bracket’s a mess, so you don’t even want to ask me about that,” he said. “I went wrong. I thought Kentucky was going to hold us down, all of the freshmen. I thought all of the freshmen were going to do it, even though DeMarcus Cousins is not a freshman. There’s no way that kid is a freshman.”
