The 2016 NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament will be an interesting tournament to say the least. This 2015-16 men’s basketball season has seen a lot of parody compared to past seasons. There hasn’t been a clear picture of who is the best team in the country.
finished the regular season undefeated and entered post-season play undefeated as well after winning their conference tournament. When you look at the amount of teams that held the
number one spot atop the AP Poll this year it doesn’t give any indication of who’s the best team
in the country. Eight different teams occupied the number one spot throughout the season.
University of North Carolina, University of Oregon and the University of Virginia. A number one seed has never lost in the first round, but this year there may be a one seed in trouble. The University of North Carolina is slated to play against Florida Golf Coast. FGCU went on a magical run in 2013 as a fifteenth seed, knocking off Georgetown and San Diego State to reach
the Sweet 16. It’s a long shot for a sixteen seed to upset a number one seed, but when you look
back at this past season, the University of Northern Iowa beat the University of North Carolina in the regular season 71-67. Florida Gulf Coast University isn’t your average number sixteen seed who’s ecstatic just to make the big dance. Florida Gulf Coast is a team trying to prove they belong. They’ve already picked up their first win in the tournament’s first four play in game vs.
if the University of Northern Iowa picks up a victory against the University of Texas in that first round game.
University of Kentucky Wildcats, who have won their last five games led by Tyler Ulis. Ulis is a 5’9
point guard who some people think should be in the conversation for AP player of the year award. Many people say that the University of Kentucky got snubbed with a four seed. All the more reason that this year’s NCAA men’s basketball tournament will be filled with teams looking to prove that they’re the best team in the country. Sit back, relax and enjoy the madness!
