Don't let the Big East Tournament fool you. UConn isn't that good. One bad game or foul troubled game from Kemba and they're doneski. I don't think anybody's beating Kansas.

Syracuse, San Diego State, Kansas, and Pitt. With Kansas winning the whole thing.

UConn's path to the Elite 8 isn't really that difficult though. I'm not buying SDSU.

They're good. People don't watch them cause they play so many 11 PM EST start games. If UConn gets through SDSU, they aren't as good as Duke or Texas. They seeded higher than Texas cause of the Big East Tournament. I could even see them possibly losing to Arizona. When teams are so reliant on one player the way Conn is on Kemba Walker they rarely make it beyond the Elite 8, because one off or foul riddled game and they can't win.

I agree on UCONN. It's possible they make a deep run if Kemba can keep playing out of this world, but I'm very skittish about team's that rely so heavily on one player, because if he has an off game or gets into foul trouble, that's a major issue. I actually have BYU going down in the first round, as they are absurdly dependent on Jimmer.

My final four is Duke, Kansas, K State, and Syracuse, with Duke winning it over Kansas.
