Seth Davis, who provides some of the best college hoops analysis in the business for CBS Sports and Sports Illustrated, knows a thing or two about outstanding basketball teams. That makes it a very encouraging sign for Kentucky when Davis says that, with a national championship this season, the Wildcats would have a chance to rank among the all-time greats.
In addition to his TV duties at this weekend’s Final Four, Davis is busy making sandwiches: he hopes to “spread the word” about healthy eating by kicking off a Subway promotion (an April buy-one, get-one-free deal on subs purchased before 9 a.m.). Fortunately, he was able to step away from the counter long enough to provide his take on this year’s tournament as well as some of the greatest moments in March Madness history.
Davis points out that this year’s Kentucky squad carries the pressure not only of being the overriding tournament favorite, but of being a symbol of the “culture of the one-and-done, which has come under scrutiny” in recent seasons. A win in Monday’s title game would, Davis argues, put Kentucky in the discussion as “one of the best, or one of the better all-time teams.”
Herein, Davis’ picks for the group the Wildcats are hoping to join on Monday night: the greatest champions in NCAA basketball history.
