Picks from our Fab 5

We asked Sports Illustrated's all-star lineup of college basketball writers to share their brackets, and their logic, with users. But if you don't win your office pool, don't blame us.

xxx Michigan State has Mateen Cleaves and Charlie Bell, two of the best guards in the country. The Spartans also don't have to spend much travel time. They should meet Duke in the final, while St. John's and Miami should also get trips to Indy.

  xxx Temple will make a run all the way to the title game, but Michigan State will be the champion. LSU will use its defense for a Final Four berth and Cincinnati will be able to come together without Kenyon Martin to make the national semifinals.

  xxx Michigan State just has too much depth for the other Final Four teams (LSU, Temple and Ohio State). Look for Ball State to pull off a first-round upset over UCLA.

xxx Gotta go with Michigan State. Its tough schedule has it prepared for the six-game run to the title. Tulsa will be the surprise team in the Final Four, after beating Stanford in the South final. Also look for St. John's and Temple to make the Final Four.

  xxx Tom Izzo's team will be the kings of college basketball on April 3. Michigan State has overcome so many obstacles and will rely on its experienced backcourt during the tourney. Teams to watch in the first round include Creighton, Winthrop and Pepperdine.
