  • Marquette: Dwyane Wade is a famous alum of the No. 3 seed in the East Region, should you need a reason to root against this team
  • Kentucky: Having won the NCAA championship in 2012, there’s no reason to suspect the Wildcats won’t repeat
  • Oregon: The Ducks likely will be out of the tournament by the time you read this, but if not, they’re the team to watch
  • Louisville: The No. 1 overall seed in the tournament, so yeah, they’ve got no chance in hell
