Which Teams Will Earn The Top Seeds In The NCAA Basketball Championships? 0

BKC: Kansas v Kansas State January 30, 2010

Sherron Collins and the Kansas Jayhawks seem poised for the top seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Selection Sunday is getting closer and closer and the way things are shaping up I’m ready to make some NCAA Basketball predictions for the four teams that will be the number one seed in each region.

I’m really enjoying the way Kansas is playing right now, even though they had a few problems against Texas A&M they found a way to win and that gives me a feeling they are a championship caliber team.

Looking at their schedule I don’t see any team that can stop them until the tourney starts.  They do go up against Kansas State, but that game is at home and I don’t think they will lose.  That’s why I have Kansas as the top team in the Big 12 and in the country in general.

Kansas will lead the Midwest bracket.

Some Former College Basketball Champions Won’t Be Dancing in 2010 1

Georgia Tech v North Carolina

Roy Williams and the defending NCAA Champion North Carolina Tar Heels have struggled in 2010.

To start this off I am going to tell you UCLA and Kentucky are the teams with more action and most championships titles after they survived March Madness, here are some things that I have considered before my making my final March Madness picks:

Kansas, with 3 titles, is one of my favorites for March Madness. The Jayhawks are gunning for a perfect regular season and are trying to make this season their best conference performance ever; they are leading the nation in scoring and victory margin, winning eleven straight games. Kansas is ranked at number one, meaning they are always favorites in any NCAA basketball odds

UCLA, the team with eleven Big Dance victories in college basketball, is having an embarrassing campaign this season. With 12 wins and 13 losses, the Bruins haven’t improved their work, and I can’t even imagine them in the final 64. The Bruins seem to be far away from the glory days and the good times in the past, their last title was in 1995.
