Louisville will head into the tournament after winning the American Athletic Conference tournament with ease. Their record is the exact same as it was last year going into the tournament at 29-5. Louisville is playing impressive basketball, but is it just because of the easy conference schedule or are they legit.
Kentucky will head into the tournament with a 24-9 record, losing to Florida by one point in the SEC Championship. Kentucky seems to have improved in a lot of areas, do they have what it take to move up the bracket from a 8 seed.
Florida is the number one seed overall, will play Albany or Mt. St. Mary in their first game of the tournament.
EKU will play Kansas in the first-round.
