We’re sure that there were many of you out there who didn’t agree with some of our seedings in our Sneaker News March Madness OG Air Jordan Tournament – and that’s fair enough being that this is all somewhat subjective. But we did take some time to really weigh things out in terms of determining power rankings, and from the looks at our first round results, it appears we were pretty close to the mark across the board according to your voting. Every Round 1 favorite advanced with the one exception being the 5-seed Air Jordan VI White/Infrared taking out the 4th-seeded Military Blue AJ IV. While Round 1 may not have provided many upsets, there were plenty of hard fought battles, and it’s only gonna get tougher from here on in. With almost all the lower seeds wiped out, every match-up should provide fairly evenly-matched competitors going to head to head with a trip to the Elite 8 on the line. Keep reading to check out the full Round 1 results, and check out Sneaker News HD for a better look at the updated bracket layout. Voting for the Sweet 16 round will kick off tomorrow night, so be sure to check back to get your votes in.
