March is finally here, and the tournament is in sight. Teams are headed into their conference tournaments where they hope to string together a few big wins to clinch the best seed possible. There are arguments for many teams to claim that important No. 1 seed, but only four will come away with it. The four that I feel are most deserving are Florida, Wichita State, Arizona and Kansas. The first three are pretty self-explanatory. Florida has been solid all year with big wins, great defense and an undefeated record in the ACC. Wichita State performed the first ever 31-0 regular season; no need to comment more there. Arizona was ranked No. 1 overall for a large portion of the season, and they simply have the talent and the athletes to get it done. Look for Aaron Gordon to have a fantastic postseason. Kansas, one would argue, does not deserve a top spot. After being handed seven losses and currently ranked eighth in the country, many are counting Kansas out. However, they have played one of the toughest schedules this season and have grabbed wins over Duke, Iowa State (x2), New Mexico, Oklahoma (x2), and Texas. They have also been playing their best basketball at the end of the season, which is a great sign heading into the tournament. You might remember the UConn team with Kemba Walker that finished the end of the regular season and postseason on an 11-game win streak, which awarded them the national championship. Plan on Kansas, along with these other three teams, to do big things in the tournament this year.
