Here are predictions for all 32 NCAA tournament first round games.

South Region

No. 1 Virginia vs. No. 16 UMBC, Friday

Like most 16-1 games, this should be a mismatch. Virginia has the No. 1 defense in the land; UMBC ranks 208th in offense. The Retrievers might not crack 50.

Winner: Virginia

No. 8 Creighton vs. No. 9 Kansas State, Friday

Dean Wade’s health is the most important thing for Kansas State. Khyri Thomas and Marcus Foster might be the two best guys on the court, but Creighton struggles to defend bigs. Wade could go off if he plays, but that’s no guarantee considering he missed the Big 12 semifinal.

Winner: Creighton

No. 5 Kentucky vs. No. 12 Davidson, Thursday

Kentucky is rolling, having won seven of eight, and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander looks like a difference-maker at point guard. Davidson is hot too, and Kellan Grady and Peyton Aldridge are matchup nightmares. Expect a close UK win.

Winner: Kentucky
