The Braves are coming!!

No, not the Atlanta Braves but the Bradley Braves located in Peoria, Illinois!!

Just read what they say at about the Oakland regional!!!
Upset Special: Bradley over Memphis
You have to hand it to the top-seeded Tigers, who silenced all of the doubters by cruising through the first two rounds. Led by forward Rodney Carney (17.4 points per game), Memphis dominated both opponents, Oral Roberts (94-78) and Bucknell (72-56). Now here comes yet another dangerous mid-major -- upstart Bradley, the No. 13 seed. Yes, Memphis proved it deserves respect, but I still can't shake the feeling the Tigers are headed for an upset. Based on the remarkable performance thus far by 7-foot center Patrick O'Bryant, the Braves are primed to accomplish what fellow mids Oral Roberts and Bucknell could not be the first team in the tourney to topple a No. 1 seed.
I called it the other day.

Oh, and Gonzaga? Without Morrison, they will likely go home. He's out with flu-like symptoms. Bradley will likely play UCLA.
