What if I told you Kentucky could be in the South Region of the NCAA Tournament, playing its first and second round games in Columbus, followed by the regional in Louisville, and their toughest competition to get to the Final Four would be Virginia, Purdue, and Iowa State?
That’s pretty much a dream scenario, right? It’s the one Joe Lunardi laid out in his latest Bracketology, which still has Kentucky as a two-seed to Virginia’s one-seed, but with that path, who cares?
CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm also has Virginia and Kentucky as the top two seeds in the South, but with Houston as the three-seed and Iowa the four-seed:
Despite Saturday’s results, Lunardi and Palm still have Tennessee as a No. 1 seed, along with Duke, Virginia, and Gonzaga. The other twos? Michigan, Michigan State, and North Carolina.
I know we want a one-seed — and Kentucky’s chances of landing one are looking better and better — but is it worth it if we can be the two-seed in Louisville with a team like Virginia or Gonzaga as the one-seed?
