Who will win March Madness?
University of Arizona – Ben Epstein
The University of Arizona Wildcats will win March Madness this year. U of A only has three losses on the year—No. 1 Gonzaga, No. 6 Oregon and No. 22 Butler—and they would beat each of those teams given another chance. The Wildcats are absolutely loaded with talent—future lottery pick Lauri Markkanen and Dusan Ristic are a couple of seven-footers that completely disrupt their opponent’s game plan. Alonzo Trier, Rawle Awkins and Kadeem Allen/Parker Jackson-Cartwright round out a starting five that is as talented as any in the country. Sean Miller is a terrific coach who has yet to break through to the Final Four with Arizona, but this is the best squad he has had and this is their year.
