March Madness Special: Choosing Your BracketPublished February 28, 2015 by Sol FH
Brackets for the 2015 NCAA men’s basketball tournament is far from settled; which teams to get No. 1 ranking?
Before selection Sunday on March 12, there are a ton of teams on the March Madness bubble waiting to get the call, letting them know that they have made it to the NCAA’s biggest Men’s basketball tournament. On the other side of the spectrum are the No. 1 seed hopefuls, exactly who we are going to focus on here.
Who Are the Most Deserving No. 1 Seeds for the NCAA Tournament?
There are around eight teams that could be selected for the four top No. 1 spots. Alas, there are only four top spots. Here are the teams that we think are most-likely to be at the top of each NCAA bracket for this year’s NCAA March Madness tournament.
Kentucky – The Wildcats are a perfect 28-0 following their amazing performance against Mississippi State (74-56) on Feb. 25. Kentucky are looking like they could strut into the NCAA Championship Game on April 6 at Lucas Oil Stadium, but only time will tell.
Virginia – They crushed Wake Forest on Wednesday night 70-34 and are now 26-1. Their only loss came at the hands of Duke, but have taken down top teams like Maryland, North Carolina, Notre Dame, and Louisville, which is the reason you’ll see VA as a No. 1 rank come March 13.
Duke – They are always strong and much is the same this season. The Blue Devils lost a couple of hard games, but have been very strong against ranked teams winning 6 out of 7 games. They showed their true winning colors in December when they beat Wisconsin 80-70, which is the shape we hope they are in throughout March.
Villanova – This team was definitely the hardest one to call. Villanova are 26-2 with their two blemishes coming due to Georgetown on Jan. 19 and Seton Hall on Jan. 3. Certainly other contenders like Gonzaga or Wisconsin could easily make the grade, but Villanova have played strong against ranked teams and should be the final No. 1 ranking.
