Teams to Watch
Florida- Florida is the favorite going into the tournament. They are currently ranked #1 in the nation and have the SEC coach and player of the year on their team.
Michigan- Michigan is on a roll right now and have risen all the way up to #8 in the rankings. Michigan has a ton of depth and when star player, Nik Stauskas, is on his game they are a very hard team to beat.
Louisville- Louisville is the reigning National Champions. They have a ton of talent and are led by their point guard, Russ Smith, who is averaging 17 points per game.
Most Overrated Team
Wichita State- Wichita State is currently ranked #2 in the country. They finished the season 34-0 and won their conference. But who did they play? They did not beat one ranked team and play in a very weak conference.
Harvard is currently 26-4 and has won 8 straight games going into the NCAA Tournament. Harvard is led by their junior guard, Wesley Saunders, who is averaging 14 points a game and is ready to lead his team in tournament play.
