    CHICAGO – UIC freshman basketball player Pat Birt has been featured in RedEye Chicago’s March Madness Edition that hit the newsstands on Thursday morning. Birt shares his predictions and favorite moments of the NCAA Tournament along with four other college basketball players from the city of Chicago.

    When asked who he thinks will cut down the nets on April 7, Birt answered, “Michigan State. The Spartans have a lot of experience and they are very dangerous if everyone can stay healthy throughout the tournament.”
