Final Four Rankings: March 5th

1 Week to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

March 5:

1.Pittsburgh - My pick to win now, and my pick to win at the beginning of the season. Remained consistant the whole year!

2.Ohio State - Probably has the best teamwork in the nation, can Sullinger carry them to a title?

3.Notre Dame - If Duke loses they could be a 1 Seed.

4.Kansas - Great win to hold of Mizzou, don't expect a 2nd round exit this year, but then again, nobody did last year.

5.Duke - If they lose to UNC, they don't move down, but UNC will move up. A win there is as good as a conference championship. IF they win, they'll be 1 or 2.

6.North Carolina - Another Great win!

7.Louisville - Should have won the game against WV, I won't hold it against them. They can beat anyone in the nation if they have a good night.

8.Texas - Let's see if their fall continues. If it does, their gone.

9.Brigham Young - Maybe the New Mexico games were just matchup problems. Now they will have teams underestimating them. This team is still very dangerous.

10.Wisconsin - Jordan Taylor should be Big 10 Player of the Year. WOW. This team is good. They proved they can win on the road. Could this be Bo Ryan's year???

Team to Watch:
San Diego State
St. John's
