It finally happened. Joe Lunardi made a bracket with Kentucky and Duke in the same region.
Throughout the month of January, we weighed the possibilities of a potential pre-Final Four matchup with Duke. Now that the Cats have climbed into the Top Five, it’s the perfect time for Lunardi to hop on the Duke-Kentucky Elite Eight rematch.
The ESPN Bracketologist currently has Duke atop the East Region in Washington D.C. Virginia is holding down the one-seed in Louisville, with Michigan as the two. Tennessee is ranked behind Virginia as the one-seed in Kansas City.
We’ll see exactly how well Lunardi’s bracket holds up when the NCAA releases its Top 16 teams this Saturday in the first March Madness Bracket Preview Show. The program will begin at 12:30 on CBS, leading into Kentucky’s matchup with Mississippi State in Starkville.
