March isn’t going to be around for another several months, but don’t tell Joe Lunardi that. The bracketology aficionado already has a prediction bracket released for the preseason.
We’re all thinking the same thing: why so early? And we’re pretending that we don’t care where Lunardi has any team this early, but let’s be honest; we do care.
And we especially care where he has the Kentucky Wildcats, which is the No. 1 seed in the South region.
Should that happen, the Cats would play in Indianapolis, which would be pretty close to a home game. Although Indiana would be in the same region, as would another familiar foe in West Virginia. On top of that, the Cats would have a potential North Carolina matchup in the Elite Eight, so it would be a challenging and familiar region to be in.
The other No. 1 seeds are Duke, Kansas and Oregon. Duke is the No. 1 overall, of course (sigh).
