We are still a few days away from all of the league tournaments being finished. We are still a few days away from the NCAA picking their at-large teams and developing the brackets.
My crystal ball shows the following, even though all of the above is still in question:
Year 2005 National Champions: Kentucky Wildcats
Final four (4) will be Illinois, Kentucky, Kansas, North Carolina.
Illinois has played great all year BUT the Big Ten is weaker this season. They will lose in the semi-finals. Kansas will get hot and be in the final four (4) but will not be in the final game.
Kentucky to beat North Carolina in the final, 75-71.
Duke will threaten but not make it. Syracuse will suprise but not make it. Boston College will fall early.
