Great coaches, great guards, experienced players, and NBA talent are usually what it takes to win a national title. Houston has Kelvin Sampson as a great coach, Jamal Shedd and Marcus Susser as excellent guards, four of Houston’s top five scorers are non-freshmen, and Susser and Jareth Walker are both Considering it’s a first round pick in the NBA Draft, it ticks all the boxes. Worried about Sasser’s groin injury? Sure, a little. But if he’s okay, I think Houston will have six more wins in this bracket than anyone else and be ready to cut the net on the first Monday night in April.

I started filling out the bracket knowing how unlikely the school would be to reverse after winning the national championship. We also know how unlikely it is that a program will win a national championship, lose most of its primary rotation players, and then come back and fight for the national championship. But that’s exactly what Kansas has done, notching his record 17 wins in Quad 1, earning his one more Big 12 regular-season crown, and earning him one in the NCAA Tournament. won the third No. 1 seed. I think the bracket will break in their favor because UCLA is dealing with injury issues and Kansas can match styles with the likes of UConn and Gonzaga if needed. From there it’s his fourth meeting with Texas in Houston. This should be an epic match. Next, I’ll face the winner of my Chaos side, which has Arizona from the South and Duke from the East. The Blue Devils haven’t played like the 5th seed in their last nine games. They’re healthier, and good freshmen are getting more comfortable with their roles. It’s a bad draw for Purdue, and it’s made worse by the Madison Square Garden setting (the building where Duke plays each year) for Suite 16 and Elite Eight.
