NCAA basketball, by all accounts, is seriously down this year in terms of talent. Everyone, it seems, has lost a bunch but IU and UofL.
As to defense, they'll need it in the Big 10 and NCAAs. And the jury is out right now, but Crean's good enough, IMO, to get them better. Whether that's good enough is anyone's guess. (And one reason why this year should be just about impossible to pick come NCAA time.)
One team no one's talking about that I think is underrated is Kansas. Length, shooting, defense, better decision-making at PG, a veteran-led team, a fairly easy road which should turn into a number one seed-- what's not to like?
