NCAA Tournament Favorites To Win
Kansas Jayhawks – Most people that watch men’s college basketball will say that Kansas is almost a lock for a number one seed in the tournament and the favorite to win the National Championship. Their only real blemish during the year was a loss to Baylor. Almost a lock for a Final Four berth.
Gonzaga Bulldogs – The Zags score better than most of the other teams in the country and they defend well. A solid favorite to be a Final Four team and many have them as a favorite to win the National Championship.
Baylor Bears – Baylor should be the number one coming out of the south but they come with some warnings. A strong defense can only do so much if their offense struggles to find a rhythm early on. Watch how the seeds end up to see if Baylor has an easy ride to the Sweet 16 or a rough second round matchup.
San Diego State Aztecs – Top 10 defense in the country, a solid offense and playing really well heading into the conference tournaments. With the right matchups in the NCAA bracket…a trip to the Final Four is very possible.
Dayton Flyers – The Flyers can shoot the rock and they may be able to outscore some teams. Lead by potential lottery pick Obi Toppin. Dayton should be a top 2 seed and have an easier run to the Sweet 16.
Kentucky Wildcats – Started off the season a bit slowly but have become hot heading into the conference championships. They will be a top 3 seed depending on how they fare in the conference tourneys but could continue to ride the wave to a Final Four appearance.
