RICHMOND, Va. – With five teams from Virginia making the Big Dance, Gov. Ralph Northam filled in his bracket in a way that would look highly on the Commonwealth.

Northam has the Virginia Cavaliers winning the tournament. He said in a tweet about the bracket that “I’ve got all five Virginia teams going big in the paint, but I’m calling a slam dunk for UVA.”

Out of the five teams, Northam has Virginia Tech, UVA, ODU and VCU advancing to the Sweet Sixteen. He also has Liberty winning its first game over Mississippi State.

Northam also advanced ODU and Virginia Tech, along with UVA, into the Elite Eight. ODU lost early Friday morning to Purdue in the first round.
