The world doesn’t even know what Kentucky’s starting five will be next season, but that’s not stopping Joe Lunardi from sending the Cats to Los Angeles as the West region’s No. 1 seed in his first bracketology for the 2013 NCAA Tournament.
Lunardi projects Indiana, Louisville, Kentucky, and Kansas as the four number one seeds, with Louisville’s opening round being played in Lexington in a region that doesn’t even have a location yet. In the West, Kentucky is poised for another Elite Eight battle with Baylor, if the Bears can get by Michigan in the Sweet 16.
This is just ridiculous. ESPN needs to send Lunardi to the beach for the summer.
