Elite Mens Trevor Cahill Jersey Iowa State’s pretty good and lost as a No. 5 seed in the round of 32. Florida is outstanding on defense and made the Elite Eight as a No. 4 seed. Arizona is loaded with five-star talent and made the Sweet 16 as a No. 2. Iowa State fell a few notches short of “great” this year, but Florida and Arizona were big-time. Gonzaga handled both and didn’t need much luck or end-of-game heroism to do it.
In the tournament, the Zags have had a somewhat fortunate path. They played a fun but athletically challenged eighth seed, Northwestern, in the second round and won by six. Their Elite Eight game was against a No. 11 seed, Xavier, that was missing its top two point guards from the start of the season and had few functional scorers. Its national semifinal win came against No. 7 South Carolina. The Gamecocks were offensively challenged, though their defense was a top-two unit nationally.
Mike Brey simply does not let the Irish fall too far. Point guard Matt Farrell and All-ACC performer Bonzie Colson are back to lead yet another Notre Dame team that will be right there in the top third of the ACC.

Replacing first-team All-American Josh Hart and March Madness icon Kris Jenkins is no easy task, but Jay Wright should be able to do the job relatively smoothly. After all, the man does everything relatively smoothly. Jalen Brunson, Phil Booth, Donte DiVincenzo, and Mikal Bridges should all return to form a core that is once again the best in the Big East.
