Kentucky grabs No. 1 overall seed in 2015 Preseason Bracket

This won’t surprise anyone …

Fresh off a national title game appearance, the Kentucky Wildcats hold the top spot in our 2015 Preseason Bracket – hardly a surprise given the team’s returning talent and stellar recruiting class.  If all goes according to the UK’s plan, the Wildcats path to the Final Four would likely go through Louisville and Cleveland in the Midwest Region.

Preseason Bracket Projection

Seeding Curve (S-Curve)

Keeping the top spot won’t be easy.  Wisconsin, Arizona, and Duke will push the Wildcats as projected No. 1 seeds.  Next in line: Kansas.  The Jayhawks have a habit of winning Big 12 titles and putting themselves in the top-line discussion.  Some believe Gonzaga has the horses, too.   And the Atlantic Coast Conference appears as deep as the once-mighty Big East – which opens the door for more than one ACC representative atop the bracket.

But let’s also remember this … we’re currently working off of blueprints and expected returns.  The actual college basketball season is more like the stock market.  Teams will have ups and downs.  Some teams will outperform expectations. Some will underperform.  There will be a surprise or two, and that’s we love it.

What we do know is that come March, 68 teams will begin an amazing journey toward Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. In 2010, that venue delivered an incredible championship game between Butler and Duke, as Gordon Hayward’s half-court heave bounced off the rim as time expired.  Let’s hope we’re treated to an equally good classic this go-around.
