Eight Underrated College Basketball Teams With NCAA Tournament Ingredients
Finding undervalued college basketball teams that could make deep runs in March Madness is honestly in the eye of the beholder. If you do the job right, you watch as much basketball as possible. Sometimes the result of an early season game can stay with you for a very long time. It’s easy to watch a game and see a team playing terrible basketball and immediately think about it every time they play the rest of the year. It’s normal. It’s natural. It happens all the time.
But it is also false.
Each team evolves according to its own schedule. COVID-related injuries and breaks can halt the progress that has been made and jolt a team in the wrong direction. But as the calendar closes in February, we’re starting to get a better sense of each team’s strengths and weaknesses. It’s hard to hide your flaws in the conference game.
Here are eight teams that are slightly undervalued right now due to early season losses that could be primed to make a lot of noise in the stretch and in the NCAA Tournament.
