Emmert played the role of consummate politician when asked who he thought would win the tournament.
"I just got an email from my daughter asking for help. I said 'I'm the last person you want help from.' My wife usually beats me," Emmert said with a laugh. "I think there's a whole bunch of teams that are serious contenders, and the four No. 1 seeds are great teams. I wouldn't have predicted VCU would go from the First Four to the Final Four last year, but that's the beauty of the tournament."
