March Madness is officially in full swing and with SAP Center hosting rounds one and two of the NCAA Tournament, we wanted to check in with the Barracuda to see who they are rooting to win this year's tournament and if they have any sleepers making some noise.

Before we get into who the Cuda are cheering for, here are a few fast facts.

  • TJ Hensick (University of Michigan) is the only Barracuda player who will see his Alma Mater represented in the men's field of 64
  • Tim Clifton (Quinnipiac) will be pulling for the women's basketball team who open up the Women's Tournament as an 11-seed on Saturday
  • Maxim Letunov (UCONN) will be following a women's hoops powerhouse when they open up NCAA tournament play on Friday as a 2-seed
