Sometimes a 30-0 record and a 29-point winning margin aren' convincing enough. Such is the case of Nevada-Las Vegas, which despite the figures above is not the pick of the majority of "It's Your Call" respondents to win this year's NCAA basketball tournament.
Sixty percent of Evening Sun readers and other respondents to yesterday's phone survey thought "someone other than UNLV" would win the tournament. The other 117 of the 296 respondents (40 percent) said UNLV would repeat as champion.
"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
