Marching 10

The NFL is in hibernation, the NBA is preparing for the playoffs, the MLB is knocking at the door, and the NHL is still NHL. Given these realities, it is time to highlight the most important event in March which is the madness created by college basketball. After picking my bracket busters, here are the possible team that will lift the crown when the madness is over.

10. Duke..... For a perennial contender, this is way too low. But judging at their season, the Blue Devils were inconsistent. The Dukies, however, are hard to underestimate especially at this point.

9. Pittsburgh..... This is a tough team to beat when they are on a streak. It is important for Aaron Gray to be consistent and for the others to follow his lead.

8. Oral Roberts..... Indeed, this team has a slim chance in winning it all. But March Madness is all about surprises and I am sensing that Oral Roberts will amaze the world.

7. Texas Tech..... Aside from the Oral Roberts, another team will make a surprise. I have this feeling that Tech will create some interesting situations.

6. Texas..... Before Durant will jump to the pro league, he has to make an indelible mark in the tournament. He has the stuff, but his teammates have to significantly contribute.

5. North Carolina..... The team is complete and can make a serious run in the tourney. But the team is in the toughest division so goodluck.

4. Florida..... The Gators are tough only after 7 players, which will impact their chances negatively as the tournament progresses. By the way, repeats are rare and Florida will fall early.

3. Ohio St...... Greg Oden is a rare specimen and Conley slowly evolves into a quality court general. Inexperience will be a key to success and the Buckeyes greatly lack that aspect.

2. Kansas..... Year after year, Kansas has been ranked high, but also fall short in the tournament. This year will be different and better results will be realized once Rush starts to assert his game.

1. Georgetown..... It has been a while since the Hoyas made some noise. Top-ranked teams are usually a tad short and G'town will take advantage of that situation.

Although these are just predictions, there are events that will definitely happen. There will be upsets, the best team will lift the crown, and basketball heroes will be made.
