What a way to start the NCAA Tournament. We were less than a half a day into the tournament and two #3 seeds were gone. Second Round action saw #1 seed Villanova and a pair of #2 seeds take an early exit. After Selection Sunday one of the teams that many said shouldn’t have gotten the invite was the UCLA Bruins. Now here they are sitting in the Sweet Sixteen. Not only did we have upsets. We also saw a record number of round one tight games. 10 games ended with a 3 point or less differentials including 5 one-point games. Besides the Cinderella stories and tight games we also have some of the big boys showing off their dominance. Kentucky and Duke won both their games easily by double digits. Wisconsin struggled a bit in Round 2 versus Oregon but still managed to win by 7. There are still a pair of #2s (Arizona & Gonzaga) and #3s (Notre Dame & Oklahoma) out their that can do plenty of damage. So what do the odds look like now?

At the beginning of the season we had the usual talk. A certain team is loaded, can they go all the way and complete the perfect season. This year the team was, the Kentucky Wildcats. John Calipari had put together the top recruiting class in the country full of McDonald All-Americans to go along with a group of experienced players that may a Cinderella run to the NCAA Championship game last year. So would this be the perfect combo to match what the 1975-76 Indiana Hoosiers were the last to do, run the table to an undefeated season? So now as we enter the NCAA Tourney the Wildcats sit at 34-0 and with 6 games away from cutting down the nets in Indianapolis, the end is in site. Still I believe the hardest part is still ahead of them. So many things make it tough. So what could stop them? Who could stop them? What are the odds that they will do it?

So here we go. Pretty much everyone has filled out their resume to get their invites. We have the final weekend of action and then the Conference Tournaments to play, but for most teams the idea of being in or out have been decided. The only thing that now comes into play is the Cinderella factor. Who and how many Conference Champions will be unexpected. How many of those last spots will be taken by unexpected and uninvited guests. Now as I said at the being “Most” teams have been decided. We still have a few bubble teams battling and we also have a fight for the 4 #1 seeds. So lets take a look at how things come into play as we head into the final weekend of the regular season and the conference tourneys.

With Selection Sunday coming up on March 15th the NCAA Tournament is fast approaching and we’re going to take a look at a matchup this Wednesday night featuring 2 teams that are flirting with the NCAA Tournamnet bubble. Illinois travels to Iowa City to take on the Hawkeyes in what is a big game for both of these ball clubs. Both teams own identical 17-10 records but Iowa sits at 8-6 in conference while Illinois is now 7-7 after a pair of losses to Wisconsin and Michigan St. So let’s take a closer look at both teams and the matchup Wednesday night.

Every week gets us closer to the big dance. Every dance it seems the dance card continues to change. Last week we listed 9 teams that were right on the bubble to either make it or be left out of the field of 68. It seemed the pressure of the bubble did not get positive reactions from many. Of the 9 teams we talked about only Miami-FL we able to go the next week without a loss. We already had them in and that will secure their position. They take on Louisville this weekend and a win their could almost lock them up for an invite. On the other side of the spectrum we had 2 of our teams that lost twice last week. Old Dominion went 1-2 and Seton Hall dropped 2 games bringing their losing streak to 5 straight. Both of those teams were already on the outside looking in and now really have their work cut out for them to get the invite they want. 2 of the teams that we had on the bubble played each other with UCLA taking down Oregon. Last week we had Oregon In and UCLA Out. Oregon still has a better record but head-to-head bumps the Bruins up. So who are the teams on the bubble now after last weeks action? Lets take a look.

The SEC has a bunch of teams loaded with talent, depth and athleticism. Kentucky won national championships in 1998 and 2012, Florida knocked on the door in 2000 getting to the title game against Michigan State, then won it all with back-to-back titles. Here’s a look at some of college basketball’s best teams in the SEC.  Read the rest of this entry »
