NCAA Tournament #1 Seeds

The NCAA tournament brackets have been published.  Teams earning a #1 seed this year are Kansas, Kentucky, Duke, and Syracuse.  All 4 are solid picks to go to the final 4.  However, it is well known that the odds of all four #1 seeds making the final four are bad.  Actually, it has only happened once in tournament history.  For a little bit of added drama, Syracuse plays Vermont in the first round.  Vermont played Syracuse in the first round of the tournament in 2005.  Syracuse was expected to perform very well in the tournament that year.  Vermont pulled a huge upset for their only NCAA tournament win in school history.  The stage is set for some theatrics starting tomorrow night.  Don’t forget to tune in to CBS to watch 64 teams battle it out for the championship.
