Lunardi's Logic

One Selection Sunday sub-plot was which No. 1 seed was going to draw the defending national champions. Now we know it's the No. 1 overall seed, Kentucky, in a potential Final Four rematch. I'd like the Huskies' chances a little more if the game was somewhere other than Louisville, and even that is presuming a win over Iowa State.

Plus, you can enlist the help of Insider's Bracket Predictor tool to aid your picks.
