Final Four

1. Who is your final 4?

2. If a seed 5 or lower gets to the final 4, who will it be?

Mine:

Maryland, Kansas St, New Mexico, Duke

Im not a Duke fan, but they have an easier route to the final four than the other top seeds.. I really hope they get upset by a team like Notre Dame, Siena, Richmond or Baylor. Or maybe Utah St.

A lower seed team that I think could get there..

Notre Dame, Xavier, Richmond, San Diego St

Notre Dame:
In my bracket I have them making the sweet 16.
I think If Harangody has good games they will be tough to beat, I have them playing Richmond in the sweet 16.. and I think the winning of that game has an outside chance of knocking off Duke.

Xavier:
I have them making the sweet 16 and playing Kansas St.. that will be a tough game for them, but Xavier is a good team with experience, personally, I think the winner of this game makes the final 4.

Richmond:
I have them upsetting Villanova in the 2nd round.. they have a lightning quick PG in Kevin Anderson and some sharp shooters as well. Trust me, this is a very good team that can make some noise and will have a shot to knock off Duke if they get as far as I think they can..

San Diego St
I have them getting to the Elite 8. Say what you want, but this is a very good team. They had big wins over UNLV, New Mexico twice.. and a close loss to BYU..
I think they have a good matchup vs Tenn in their 1st round.. then a winnable game vs GTown. I have them beating Georgia Tech in the Sweet 16 as i think they knock off Ohio St

Although i have them losing to Maryland in the Elite 8, they have some winnable games.

Although I dont think any of them will actually get there, these are the teams i think have the best shot.

What are your thoughts??

Is Harangody playing in the

Is Harangody playing in the tournament? I thought he's injured.

My pick for final 4:
Kansas, Kentucky, Baylor, Syracuse

Don't really see how Kansas and Kentucky would not be in the final four as they both got the best teams.

I actually think Kentucky can win it all with the best PG in John Wall and the best C in DeMarcus Cousins. Those two are the most important positions on any basketball team.

Kansas probably got the best team game along with talent level.

I actually think Duke would get kicked out in 2nd round, maybe by Louisville. They got upset every year. I don't see why they won't get upset again this year.

I would think Xavier would have the best shot to make it for a seed 5 or lower.

Harangody played in the Big

Harangody played in the Big East tournament and looked pretty good, he had 20 and 10 in one game in like 27 minutes or something like that. Notre Dame is a team that is going to be tough in the tournament, I agree with R-Dot, I think they are a sweet 16 game too and could be a real tough matchup for Baylor, I hope that game happens because it would be a very good one.

I keep moving pieces around

I keep moving pieces around but here is my NBAdraftnet bracket final four

Kansas: The Jayhawks will cruise to the elite eight and then play either a tired Ohio State or G-Town

Syracuse: They don't have a team that can beat them in there bracket

Kentucky: I have faith, I think KU might be a scary team that keeps opponent in there games

Baylor: I love Duke but I don't know. I want to put them in FF but I stated that Baylor will be my Final Four shocking team. At least Duke gets into the E8

I have Kentucky winning it all

I don't think Kentucky is

I don't think Kentucky is winning it all, they have no experience and experience goes a long way in the tourney. I think Kentucky is capable of making it to the champ game, but if they play Kansas they won't win. Bill Self will out coach Calipari. Also, I don't think Kentucky deserves to be in because I know Calipari is cheating to get guys like Wall and Cousins, the SEC doesn't get that talent, so he is pulling a few strings. I know Quincey may tell me about how the free flowing offense is what gets Calipari recruits, but it is other things that are illegal as well. I hope to see that guy get a "show cause" and not coach for a while.
