Which NCAA basketball team do yall see winning it all?
Pick one or pick a few

I think Georgetown or North Carolina have a good chance of taking it all.
maybe even Kansas-this just might be their year.

As a huge North Carolina fan, I say Tar Heels all the way. With that said, I can also see Tennessee, Kansas, UCLA, UConn, Duke or even Maryland make a run in the tournament. Go 'Heels!

There is a lot of parity this year and it extends a lot farther down the rankings than other years.

If I had to go with one team --now--I would go with North Carolina.

A "sleeper pick" would be Wisconsin.

Default You never know

Memphis perhaps? Kansas is a good pick too, so is Duke. Maybe even NC State?, sure they're struggling but this is the 25th anniverssay of the 1983 miracle team so maybe some of that magic will reappear? As long as the Tar Heels dont win another championship so I wont have have to see light blue championship shirts at the family get-togethers, that will be just fine with me.

Hopefully my Jayhawks take it this year, but UNC is doing great even w/o Lawson, and UCLA remains mostly unscathed in the Pac-10. Psychologically speaking, I think Memphis will be even stronger going into the tournament than they would have been if they had beat Tennessee. One of those four, IMO.

I forgot to mention Texas earlier. Texas is playing great basketball right now, I can see them make a run also.

Yeah I cant beleive how many close games UNC has gotten out of. Georgia Tech by 1, Virginia by 1, Clemson twice in overtime(Clemson shoulda won that 2nd game), I demand an investigation. No j/k they are plaing great ball and definetly look like a final four team. Hansborough's just unstopable on the court. I agree with what you said about Memphis as well. It would be interesting to see Texas in the Final four. It'll pretty much be home-court advantge for them if they make it.
On another note, NC State blew it again this time to Duke by 1. Coach K's 800th win. I still got faith in the Wolfpack but they cant be letting these important games go.

Carolina will be there. I really couldn't care less who else goes as long as it isn't Duke! There's no way State will get there. They are just pitiful this year. I say it's the Tarheels all the way this year!

wow... some props for the Terps....

Seriously - after Sunday - I'm just hoping they even make it in now. Looks like they'll have to take out UVA.. and then have a good run in the ACC.

As for the big dance - As much as I hate to say it... that friggin Duke team is looking good....
So the brain goes with Duke.. the heart... who ever plays them (UNC, Memphis, G-town, UCLA....)
