After writing this I realized i just followed espn and coaches poll teams. Not creative. Go figure. I put some others in the hunt below these four.
1. Tennessee - team is for real. Very strong and experienced team. If they split with UK they will still get a #1.
1. Duke - national audience enamored with Zion Williams. Outside shooting not as good. Could afford maybe one slip up against UNC.
1. Gonzaga - no room for slipping up. Nationally everyone thinks WCC is weak which has some validity, but they haven't seen how much the Zags are improving on defense, and have depth.
1. Virginia - two really close games with Duke; however, yesterday's loss at home hurts. Can't afford to lose to UNC this week or could drop out. Conference tourney matters for ACC.
Other's in the hunt:
2 seed - UNR is longshot as OOC was weak, MW weak, and their depth and defense don't make me think they'll go past Sweet 16.
This year's tourney s/b fun as any of 8 very solid teams that could win plus the dark horses like Nova, Mich St, Houston. [Post edited by PikesPeakRam at 02/10/2019 1:38PM]
