NCAA tournament 2011: Which teams will reach the Final Four?
Old Dominion and George Mason both have a great chance to earn single-digit seeds today. In today's story, I wrote that the only time Old Dominion received a single-digit seed was in 1980. ODU also received a single-digit seed (eighth) in 1986.
I've started to think about potential Final Four picks. First, let me point out which teams I predicted before the season would make the Final Four: Duke, Michigan State, Pittsburgh and San Diego State. Duke is not the same team without Kyrie Irving. Michigan is not the same team everyone thought it would be. Pittsburgh's been fine. San Diego State has exceeded even my very high expectations for the Aztecs.
So it will depend on matchups and bracketing, but here are the teams I am strongly considering to select as Final Four teams:
San Diego State
Teams I will not pick to advance deep:
Other teams I like to win one or more games:
Teams that still baffle me:
