Virginia has become one of the most efficient offensive teams in the nation. They were already elite defensively. They have experience, talent, and are battle tested. They play at a slow pace, but still have one of the top point differentials in the nation.
Michigan is one of the best defensive teams in the nation and on offense they rarely turn the ball over. They beat Villanova, North Carolina, and South Carolina while going undefeated outside of the Big 10. They feature NBA prospects and talented wing players.
Gonzaga is loaded and this is Mark Few’s best team. Rui Hachimura leads the way and is a future NBA Lottery pick. Their supporting cast is deep with Brandon Clarke, Zach Norvell, Josh Perkins, and Filip Petrusev. They lead the nation in scoring margin and are destined for a deep tournament run.
Wisconsin is back in the dance after missing out last year. Their best player is 6’ 10” Ethan Happ, who puts up numbers but needs to make his free throws. He’s a future NBA player. They lock in on defense and rarely turn the ball over so they don’t beat themselves.
North Carolina is a scoring machine and plays at a fast pace. With freshman Coby White at the point and fellow freshman Nassir Little coming off the bench, the Tar Heels have the firepower to run up big numbers in the tournament.
Nevada is one of the top teams in the nation out of the Mountain West Conference with a number of non-conference wins against Pac 12 teams and an undefeated non-conference record. They play with intensity but also play loose. They’re balanced and tough.
Purdue stumbled in its non conference schedule but is ready for a deep tournament run. They are talented and tough. Carsen Edwards is a future NBA talent and they are well balanced at both ends of the floor.
Kansas State is one of the best defensive teams but spotty offensively. They stay in games with their defense and have future NBA talent in Dean Wade and Xavier Sneed. Barry Brown is a veteran with over 1,700 points in his career, so K-State is tournament ready.
BJ and Eric go back to the 90s as BJ shares his thoughts on who Chicago's toughest finals opponent was during their first 3-peat and the task of closing them out to win the NBA title.
BJ and Eric talk about the impact of the Bulls losing game 7 of the eastern conference finals in Detroit to the Pistons and what it triggered immediately afterward, which lead to the dawn of the first Chicago Bulls 3-Peat.
Eric Newman is joined by FOX bracketologist and NCAA basketball historian Howie Schwab as he breaks down a strange night in college hoops starting with the Zion Williamson injury and the car accident involving Coach Jim Boeheim.
