Early NCAA knockouts

We’re less than week from NCAA tournament Selection Sunday, and the buzz is all about bubble teams, brackets and the potential seeding impact of this week’s conference tournaments.

The regular season has been unpredictable with many of the teams expected to waltz into the Big Dance instead tripping, some repeatedly. Take Texas, once ranked No. 1, which has lost eight of its last 14 games to fall out of the national rankings. The Longhorns will back into the tournament with no momentum and little regard. You can almost hear the OVER-RATED chant.
