Today is the the first day of the best month of year. March is, without question, my favorite month and the NCAA tournament is, in my opinion, the single best sporting event in all of sports. Agree or disagree, it is hard not to get excited about the tournament in March.
Most teams have just a single regular season game left this weekend before beginning conference tournaments late next week. Ten days left before Selection Sunday.
I again offer my `educated' guesses at the top 16 teams in the NCAA tournament.
These are if the season ended today. They are listed by strength within each seed as well.
No. 1: UCLA, North Carolina, Ohio State, Wisconsin
No. 2: Kansas, Florida, Memphis, Texas A&M
No. 3: Georgetown, Southern Illinois, Pittsburgh, Washington State
No. 4: Nevada, Virginia Tech, Maryland, UNLV
Close: Texas, BYU, Butler, Virginia
Big 12 Bids

Bubble Burst: Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Missouri
