Keep an eye on Moritz Wagner of Michigan, DeAndre Ayton of Arizona, Keita Bates-Diop of Ohio State, or Xavier's Trevon Bluiett if their teams do well enough.

"Just a roller coaster leading into Selection Sunday and just playing different scenarios out, the tension and the anxiety about wanting to be in this field and that we deserve to play".

The problem this year is the league had so much parity that there are few dominant teams. They're hedging their bets with multiple brackets just to try to impress you during small talk.
