So a few guys who are huge A-10 fans put on a simulation of the A-10 tournament using the NBA 2K20 video game with custom college rosters. They put the event on YouTube and it was such a success they decided to do a full simulation of the NCAA tournament, complete with selection show and everything. They are streaming every game along 4 YouTube channels and the first round was yesterday, complete with a few upsets (including #5 Suckeyes losing to #12 Rhode Island).
The Zips are in the tournament as the #13 seed in the East, taking on #4 Louisville in Sacramento. The game is at 1:20PM this afternoon on channel 2. Here is the bracket:
And here are the four channels:
And there's even a 'red zone channel' switching between the top games at the time since there is multiple games at a time:
Buzzer Beater Channel
Here is the article from Yahoo that I first heard of this:
I watched quite a bit of the action last night and although it's not the same as the real tournament, I actually found myself way more interested in the games than I thought I would(#2 FSU was down by 17 points early in the game before a slow and steady comeback against #15 UALR, which was pretty interesting to watch).
Here's hoping the Zips fair better than their +10 point spread.
