We’re a long way from the start of college basketball season, and there are certainly more-pressing matters currently happening across the Bluegrass and throughout the country. Alas, the Lunardi train never stops rolling.
That’s right – ESPN’s Joe Lunardi has released an updated look at what the 2020-21 season’s March Madness bracket could look like. This time around, Joey Brackets has the Wildcats checking in as a No. 4 seed playing in the South region, which features three teams from the Commonwealth.
Kentucky would have to beat No. 13 Yale in the opening round in Boise to play the winner of No. 5 Louisville vs. No. 12 Western Kentucky in the Round of 32. From there, the Cats would likely see Baylor – the region’s No. 1 seed – in the Sweet 16. Then, it could be Kentucky vs. No. 2 Michigan State in the Elite Eight. From there… Well, you can look at the bracket (but we all know how March goes, anyway).
Seven total SEC schools are included in this bracket, and Gonzaga, Virginia, Villanova and Baylor own the No. 1 seeds.
Here’s a look at the entire bracket:
Do we want to talk about this, or can we collectively agree to wait until January?
