Kentucky tabbed as 4-seed in latest Bracketology update

The potential of adding Olivier Sarr to the upcoming Kentucky basketball roster appears to be influencing the national media.

Over at ESPN, Joe Lunardi – who is famous for his wayyyyy too early bracket predictions – updated his Bracketology numbers and moved the Wildcats up to a four-seed where they will match up against 13-seeded Georgia State in the first round. In Lunardi’s previous Bracketology, he had Kentucky tabbed as a five-seed.


Lunardi’s top four overall teams are Gonzaga, Villanova, Baylor, and Virginia. He also has Louisville ranked as a six-seed while six teams from the SEC made the field of 68.

After failing to land Evansville transfer DeAndre Williams – who committed to Memphis on Friday afternoon – Kentucky’s roster for the upcoming season is coming close to being a finished product. Sarr being declared immediately eligible for next year is crucial to UK’s frontcourt success. Alongside B.J. Boston and Terrence Clarke, that trio of ‘Cats could lead a contender that has a chance to make a deep tournament run.

What do you think? Is a four-seed fair right now? Or is there still too much left to figure out before we can make an accurate prediction?

    Why? I just cannot even FATHOM why you at KSR give this clown any attention and why the readers even give opinions about his guesses. Lunardi is an irrelevant tool who does these inane “brackets” constantly in a feeble attempt to justify his existence to the nimrods at ESPoN. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE just ignore him and they will have to realize that he is the epitome of nonessential, to borrow a term from the Coronavirus circus.

      News is what the news media says it is. It’s similar to sports talk radio. If you’re getting paid to talk about sports X number of hours a day, you have to create some things to talk about.

    If Sarr becomes eligible, IMO he changes the whole complexion of the team which would result in a much greater difference in seeding than improving by 1 seed. If a four seed is relatively accurate, then a five seed was not. If the five seed previously was relatively accurate then the four seed is not

    Lunardi’s comments deserves no follow up comments. Why do Ky fans fall for his garbage? This guy is about as accurate as me. I may be even better. At least I’m not crazy enough to post a ridiculous comment 10 months in advance. If we fans ignore him he will go away.
