Lunardi's first bracketology, 2013-14.



The NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament just ended. Rest bite right? Not for Joe Lunardi. He already has his first bracketology edition for the 2013-14 season filled out. So, you probably are very curious to where Maryland is right? Not there. Not in the field of 68. Not the First Four Out. Not the Next Four Out. Now losing Alex Len does hurt as we also will need Shaquille Cleare and Charles Mitchell to grow. We also lost Pe'Shon Howard our only senior. We do have though a proven 3 point shooter in Evan Smotrycz, a dominant scorer in Dez Wells, a top 50 prospect in Roddy Peters at PG, a young but a player with a lot of promise in Seth Allen, a vastly improved 2 guard in Nick Faust, and a versatile and talented defender and shooter in Jake Layman. We're also a much more experienced basketball team. I think if you look at this team it has NCAA potential written all over it. We were on the bubble this past year. With a team that all-round is probably better we should do more.

Let's remember this though. It's April. We won't play our first game for another 6 months. Lunardi's kicking off the season though and I think he's got one wrong. All the more reason though for when that time comes to prove them wrong.

For those interested on the full details of his preview/bracket it is here: http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/bracketology. A few highlights from it for those who don't feel like reading it or don't have the time.

#1 seeds: Kentucky, Michigan State, Duke, Arizona

#2 seeds: Syracuse, Louisville, Ohio State, Michigan

ACC teams not in those two groupings are: #4 seed Virginia, #3 seed North Carolina, #6 seed Notre Dame, and #9 seed Pittsburgh.

Notable blue blood seedings: #6 seed UCLA, #4 seed Indiana, #3 seed UCONN, #3 seed Kansas.

Definitely looking like it could be an interesting season and I encourage all to check it out and discuss what you think about it below.
