They all seem flawed in some way.
But I'll still be surprised if the league doesn't put a record number of schools in the NCAA tournament, and I won't be shocked if one or two make the Final Four. The problem is trying to figure out which one or two because the league is a scattered mess after three top 10 teams took losses Saturday.
- No. 23 Louisville 79, No. 5 Connecticut 78 (2OT)
- No. 21 Georgetown 69, No. 8 Villanova 66
- Marquette 76, No. 9 Syracuse 70
Yep, those two teams play each other next.
So Syracuse will either take its fifth straight loss or UConn will take its second straight loss.
There's no way around it.
Which is why Jim Boeheim and Jim Calhoun must be going crazy.
Both lost winnable games Saturday.
Now one of them is guaranteed to lose again Wednesday.
