Has it really been a year? *checks rhetorical calendar* Yes it has! So it’s time to preview what most people think is the most predictable bracket of the lot this year. As somebody who has been trying to find a creative yet logical championship pick for a few days now, I can tell you it’s not easy. Louisville seems to be the consensus champion. Let’s take a look at the bracket now in more depth:
Team that lost three in a row at one point and you wrote off but now is somehow the tournament’s top seed despite never beating a team in the top 10: Louisville
No I didn’t make any of that up. The Cards rank 15th in adjusted offense and 1st in adjusted defense, according to KenPom rankings, but they don’t have any particularly convincing wins on their resume. They certainly looked good in their second-half thrashing of Syracuse over the weekend, but it’s unclear if they could replicate that against a top team like Duke.
