Breaking Down The Tournament's Top Seeds

Being a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament doesn't guarantee a Final Four berth, but it does automatically make your team the subject of in-depth analysis. Here are how the top four teams stack up:

OHIO STATE

  • Strengths: If you look closely, the numbers prove the Buckeyes have already won the tournament
  • Weaknesses: Because they can win playing high-tempo or low-tempo, they will lose when they forget to choose one

KANSAS

  • Strengths: In addition to strong shooting and defense, the Jayhawks have the added bonus of not being Duke
  • Weaknesses: Although the Morris twins have been solid all year, that doesn't change the fact that twins are weird

DUKE

  • Strengths: Blue Devils have the best chance of repeating as champions, since no other team won the tournament last year
  • Weaknesses: At this point, it' s no longer a good thing that Bobby Hurley's still on the team

PITT

  • Strengths: This tough defensive team won't get blown out when they lose early in the tournament
  • Weaknesses: Panthers have some players who can do it all; unfortunately, they also have players who literally can't do anything
