The Kentucky Wildcats earned the No. 1 overall seed in this year's NCAA tournament despite their loss to Vanderbilt in the SEC title game.
With a boatload of freshman talent, the Wildcats have been described as inexperienced and erratic at times, but this overall No. 1 seed helps them out tremendously.
They are in the South Region with Duke and Baylor as the No. 2 and No. 3 seeds, respectively.
Clearly, Duke showed its weaknesses against North Carolina and Florida State late in the season.
Although no one should ever doubt a Coach K team, this year just seems different.
As for Baylor, I cannot pinpoint their potential.
This team upset Kansas in the Big 12 tournament but then got torched by Missouri.
The Bears have a chance to do some damage if they play consistently, but that is their biggest question mark.
Besides the top two challengers to Kentucky, the Wildcats will also have to go through Indiana and possibly a few mid-majors.
Their Final Four opponent seems to be beatable, as well. Michigan State, Missouri and Marquette are the top three seeds that have the best chance of escaping their regions.
Overall, Kentucky has a good path to the final.
