Kentucky listed as 5-seed in Boise in latest Bracketology

Once again, ESPN Bracketologists are preparing the BBN to head to Boise, Idaho to kick off the NCAA tournament.

In their latest edition of Bracketology, Kentucky is listed as the five-seed in the South region, taking on Louisiana in the first round. If they avoid the popular five-twelve upset, they will likely take on Ohio State in the Round of 32.

From there, the Cats will likely have a date with one-seed Virginia in the Sweet 16, a matchup Kentucky fans would likely welcome with open arms. With a victory, either No. 2 Purdue or No. 3 Tennesee would be waiting for the Wildcats in the Elite Eight.

Check out the entire South bracket:

In the West, seven-loss Kansas is currently listed as the one-seed, with North Carolina as the two and Auburn as the three taking on Northern Kentucky in the first round.

Villanova takes home the one-seed in the East, followed by Duke at two, and Cincinnati at three.

Xavier, Michigan State, and Wichita State are listed as the top-three seeds in the Midwest, with Louisville also making it in this region as the 12.

Each year, the Cats always manage to end up in the death region, featuring the toughest matchups imaginable from the get-go. Again, these are just Joe Lunardi’s predictions, but Kentucky fans should be ecstatic if this ended up being even remotely close to the final product.

For the entire bracket, head on over here.

      Because they are highly overrated

      agree. Their defense would smother our young guys. Plus they have been one of maybe 3 teams that have been consistantly good all year. All that is IF we win 2 games to get to them. I do agree this bracket looks good, but all brackets will with so few really good teams.

      Good question. Are you a fan of history? It could be their year – to win, or lose early. The ACC – like the SEC – is tough. This is why the Big Dance exists. And – this year – arguably, more than ever, is ripe for a big win by ANY team asked to dance.

      They got lucky to beat Loserville. I like our chances.

      Because Virginia plays great defense and mediocre offense. They aren’t gonna blow you out. Our defense has been solid and I feel our offense is better when clicking, so I would take the Cats

    I believe they’re overrated too but they still win. Kentucky is too anemic on offense to face that defense.

      They also only score around 60 a game. They arent a big team. Our length would create problems.

      True

      U want 2 loss UVa, with the nations best defense, fewest turnovers, great young coach chasing his first title over 7 loss Kansas who just got destroyed by OSU? Or Xavier? Even 3 loss Villanova is a better draw for us.but good Lord look at the rest of the bracket! A likely 10 loss UNC is the two and Auburn without one of its best players is the 3. It’s all fantasy anyway but dear Lord if that’s the West, send us THERE!! Not to face UVa who would exploit our youth and inexperience in a hellish nightmare of turnovers. Give me Kansas, UNC and Auburn all day.
