Definitely Wisconsin. They probably should've beaten Kentucky in the tourney and everyone is back.

Kentucky, Kansas, Gonzaga, VCU, Arizona, Colorado, and some small conference team that has a ton of seniors that I don't know about yet.

All I know is Kentucky is so deep is embarrassing. Playing 10 deep against Kansas, subbing 5 at a time, and is up by 15.
Raise the bar, do the minimum.

Ya....I suspect UK is going to be very, very tough to beat in March. Just ridiculously deep and Cal is getting them all playing time.

So, going 10 deep by playing two 5 player "platoons", Kentucky beat Kansas by 32.... 32 !

So my top 8 are Kentucky 8 times.

I'd like to see the White Platoon vs the Blue Platoon in the final as those are the best teams in the country.

Kentucky is beatable, everyone will look and talk about the 32 point win over Kansas but there wasn't much talk about their 19 point win at home over buffalo, the score at the half of that game was 38-33. Kentucky was down by 5 at the half to buffalo. Kentucky would win a 7 game series against every team but they could fall in the tourney.
