Williamson isn't the only star freshman suiting up for the Blue Devils as Cam Reddish, RJ Barrett and Tre Jones are incredibly impressive in their own right. You would be wise to have your Final Four made up of No. 1, 2 or No. 3 seeds. Those two teams have to be the favorites in this region and I see them facing off in the Elite Eight. If the Vols can make the proper adjustments, they will easily advance to the Sweet 16 but that's where it starts getting really tough.
I know everyone has made their brackets! Throughout the season, some have called this the best Gonzaga team Few has ever put on the court in his 20 years heading up the program, so it'll be interesting to keep an eye on the Bulldogs throughout the tournament. Or they will lose early and this whole column will look like a joke which would also be awesome so who cares, kick up your feet, stuff your face and enjoy some basketball. In the Midwest, there are several teams that can and will challenge the Tar Heels for a spot in the Final Four.
This sets up a rematch in the Final Four between Duke and the Zags. With that being said there are some trade secrets that I can share because I am obviously the best at predicting brackets because as a sports writer I am never wrong and what I say is law, a la Mike Francesa.

Zinedine Zidane returns to Real Madrid with surprise three-year deal
Zidane was replaced by Julen Lopetegui , the former Spain coach fired before the World Cup for taking the Madrid job. Isco has made 16 league appearances for Real this season, amassing one goal and two assists.
I watch college hoops religiously, I bet games, I can rattle off projected lottery picks stats like nobody's business. Much like their matchup with Kentucky, a game with Tennessee is a very comparable matchup for North Carolina. The Racers from the OVC have one of the three best players in the country in point guard Ja Morant and in the game of college basketball one player can make a huge difference. But they lost to North Carolina who beat Duke twice during the regular season, but Zion Williamson didn't play in either game (he did during the conference tourney which Duke won).
This would be the fourth time the two squads have faced off and the third time since the beginning of March.
"The 6" 7', 285 pound man-child holds the rare distinction of being the ACC Rookie of the Year, Player of the Year, conference tournament MVP and First Team All-American. I think of every possible cinderella scenario, I think of great coaches, I think of the blue blood programs and traditions, I think of revisionist history and most of all, I think of having a flawless bracket.
