College Basketball Update and Predictions for March

Jacob Brooks, Sports Editor

     Even in a year where smaller schools like Buffalo, Nevada, and Houston have been making some noise to come out of nowhere emerging even as potential title contenders, there still seems to remain little doubt as to who the top team in college basketball is. Although they’ve went through some ups and downs, Duke is the clear favorite. Boasting three of the top five projected NBA draft picks in Cam Reddish, RJ Barrett, and Zion Williamson, there’s no question that the Blue Devils possess the most feared squad in all of college basketball. Gonzaga and Syracuse have proven Duke isn’t quite unbeatable, but when March arrives it will be hard to pick against a team filled with loads of NBA-talent to go along with a hall-of-fame coach.
