Who is #1?

February 27, 2009

College basketball is heating up, and what makes this year so intriguing is that there is not a clear #1 team in the nation.  Last year, Kansas was considered the number one team in the country throughout the season.  After they won the national championship, nobody was shocked.  Before Jerome Dyson went down with a season ending injury, Uconn was the best team in college basketball this year.  He will be very hard to replace, and will make it difficult for the Huskies to win a national championship this year.  Oklahoma definitely has a legitimate shot, but all depends on if Blake Griffin will be the same player after he suffered a concussion last week.  After beating Uconn in convincing fashion, Pittsburgh looked like the team to beat.  Then they got blown out by Providence.  The field is wide open this year, and my pick to win the big dance is… the Connecticut Huskies.  Jim Calhoun is one of the best men’s college basketball coaches of all time.  After picking up his 800th victory a couple nights ago, 2009 will be a season to remember for Calhoun.  Whether it involves clashing with the media, hitting a milestone victory, or winning a national championship, Calhoun and his boys are always up to the challenge.  I think AJ Price is the best point guard in college basketball.  If Stanley Robinson could step it up down the stretch, the loss of Dyson could be compensated for.  Thabeet is a  beast inside, and Jeff Adrien is a great contributor.  Being battle tested in the tough Big East Conference, and dealing with so much adversity this year, I like Uconn to win it all.
