Looking for Joe Lunardi’s thoughts on the Kentucky basketball team in his latest Bracketology update? No?
Eh, that’s okay. We’ll tell you anyway.
In a new way-too-soon Bracketology post, Lunardi kept the Wildcats as a No. 4 seed in the Midwest region, starting the NCAA Tournament in San Jose.
In this scenario, Kentucky would take on 13-seed South Dakota State in the first round, followed by the winner of (5) Oregon and (12) Western Kentucky in the Round of 32.
