According to NCAA.com, The Division I Men’s Basketball committee unveiled their predictions for the Sweet 16 for March Madness, on CBS this afternoon. They have the defending National Champions, the Villanova Wildcats, on top as the first seed, and have Mike Krzyzewski and the Duke Blue Devils, 16th. In between those teams are the likes of schools such as North Carolina, Louisville, and the currently-ranked number 1 team in the country, the Gonzaga Bulldogs.

1. How Good is UCLA?
First, let me begin by saying UCLA will be mentioned a few times in this article. That’s why I chose Lonzo Ball for the article’s image and he is very deserving of the honor. So far this season the Bruins have been setting college basketball on fire with their nine-game winning streak and electric highlights from their freshman point guard, Lonzo Ball. Lonzo was one of the top high school players in the nation and now he is making a name for himself in the college hoops scene. Lonzo is currently averaging 14.6 points per game to go along with 4.9 rebounds per game and 9.6 assists per game. UCLA is 9-0, and after defeating number 1 ranked Kentucky on Saturday, they look to be an unstoppable force heading into the mist of the season. Time will only tell if UCLA can keep up this fantastic brand of basketball.
