USA Today projects Kentucky as a No. 6 seed in St. Louis

ESPN’s Joe Lunardi is a little behind on his NCAA tournament bracket projections but the good people at USA Today are up to date with what they would expect to see if Selection Sunday were tomorrow.

USA Today has Kentucky as a No. 6 seed in the South Region of the tournament, playing against Florida State in the opening round. Third-seeded Michigan State would await in Round 2 with Spartan win over Belmont.

From there, Kentucky would likely have to run through No. 2 Virginia in the Sweet 16 in Louisville, then top-seeded Oklahoma to reach the Final Four. Other potential opponents in Louisville are Utah, Texas, Wichita State or Notre Dame.

    No way that happens, but that bracket would be a dream come true. Virginia and Oklahoma would be getting the screws.

    There’s no way they’re going to be in the South Region. Cats fan here, but how could NCAA justify putting them in Louisville (75 miles away) as a six seed. That would be home court advantage over higher seeded teams. Would love to see it, but never going to happen.

    Be lucky to make the tournament Period. Cal had a horrible recruiting year and is a horrible in game coach

    Dropping lower by the week. Hopefully the season will end before we drop all the way out. We have now reached the seeding area where we will lose in the first round. I hope that KSR’s hype of next years class is deserved, because they sure missed the mark on this class. Murray can’t play defense and is a streaky shooter, Brisoe can’t shoot anything but a layup, Humphries and Winyard must really suck to sit the bench behind Skal (who can’t play), and who knows what Mulder and Matthews are. There it is folks, probably the worst class Cal has ever put together. Oh but KSR said that if we got Murray we were going to be really good. We have 1″quality” win, Louisville. That is our resume for the tournament.
