Hot or Not?
People often look at a team’s momentum when choosing their bracket. Teams that have won their conference tournament before entering post season have been contenders in the National Championship. The #4 seed, Michigan State, beat out Michigan for the Big Ten Conference Championship and is now an east region favorite. The overall #1 seed, Florida, hasn’t lost a game since December and is favored to be this year’s National Champions.
Unlike the NBA, the college game still belongs to the coaches. Even if you haven’t watched college hoops, you’re likely still familiar with Coach K, Rick Pitino, John Calipari and Jim Boeheim. When it comes time to fill out your bracket, trust in the top coaches as they always find a way to put their teams in a position to win big games.
Top basketball analysts use experience as a strategy for picking their bracket this time of the year. Some fill out their brackets based on the presence of veteran players on the competing teams. Florida’s head coach Billy Donovan entrusts the ball to his veteran players Scottie Wilbekin, Casey Prather and Patrick Young. On the other hand, the #8 seed, Kentucky, is led by extraordinarily talented freshmen. Analysts predict they will make a run in the 2014 NCAA tournament.
One thing that makes basketball so entertaining is the fact that one player can elevate a team. History tells us that the best players win the biggest games. As a Syracuse freshman, Carmelo Anthony led his team to a National Championship averaging 22.2ppg and 10rpg. A few standout players to watch in the tournament this year are Duke’s Jabari Parker, Oklahoma State’s Marcus Smart, Louisville’s Russ Smith and Michigan State’s Gary Harris.
