Ladies and gentlemen. While you’re waiting for the NBA, NFL, and college football seasons are approaching, the beginning of November will see the start of 2021-22 NCAA basketball season.
In the meantime, before you start seeking out the first March Madness predictions We should take a moment to relax to take a deep breath and maybe recall what happened last year.
I think that we be one in recognizing the fact that Gonzaga was the most successful team in basketball at the college level this season. The result that they ended up just one game short of winning the championship after losing in the finals to Baylor during the championship game is a fact that’s difficult to comprehend and difficult to accept.
Many disappointments, thrills as well as emotions were a buzz this season, which helps college ball fans think that the 2021-22 year will be just as thrilling an adventure as the previous.
In this regard Here are our selections for three teams we think seem to be the most suitable as early contenders for the coming NCAA basketball tournament.
The Gonzaga Bulldogs were the top team in the country in the past and have all the necessary tools, talent, and the attitude to emerge as early favorites to win the NCAA basketball championship once time in the next season.
One of the major reasons that people might remember, is the fact that Gonzaga’s loss to Baylor in the finals of the national championship is two times in the past five seasons that Gonzaga finishes in the runner-up position to win the NCAA basketball championship.
What is it that is it that makes Gonzaga distinguish themselves from their competitors? First of all, their impressive lineup.
Coach Mark Few, who will not be playing in the season opening game with Dixie State after a suspension for an DUI ticket in September, is a man with talents upon talents, all across his team.
In addition to 2021’s No.1 player within the US Chet Holmgren as well as returning Drew Timme, Gonzaga could be in the running for the top frontcourt combination across the country.
In addition, the talents at point guard Andrew Nembhard has brought to the team though he’s still not considered one of the top point guards in the NCAA basketball. Then consider the qualities that Iowa State transfer Rasir Bolton and rookie guard Nolan Hickman will bring to the team, and you’ll discern the reason this team is an early favorite to claim the title.
There was a time, not too long ago, when they Kansas Jayhawks were one of the most powerful and feared basketball teams in college basketball.
Their last national championship win dates to 2008, when they won an overtime victory against Memphis featuring the well-remembered “Mario’s Miracle” shot, the shot made by NBA superstar Mario Chalmers to bring the game to overtime the Jayhawks are hoping for the 21/22 season as the one in which they return up the NCAA basketball hill.
The key to what may lead them to success this year is how Coach Bill Self has managed to keep four of last year’s players back, as well as having the ability to recruit the former Arizona State point guard, and perhaps the top transfer player in basketball at the college level, Remy Martin.
Inviting Martin into the team will automatically enhance Kansas its performance in speed and transition as well as scoring. Martin is a ideal candidate to fill the position which Marcus Garrett left and with players such as Christian Braun, Ochai Agbaji, David McCormack, and Jalen Wilson all returning to play in the 2016 season Kansas is sure to be an opponent that no one wants to play.
Since 2010, there’s been several teams who have had impressive seasons in basketball at college However, only 3 teams have managed to capture the title of college basketball twice.
There’s Duke which is not as powerful as the powerhouse they were in the past, Connecticut, and then there’s Villanova.
Jay Wright’s group has been able to remain relevant throughout the NCAA basketball conversation for many years, however, it seems that the Wildcats will be aiming for the 2021-22 season , which could be the year they can make another attempt at the title or at the very least, an Final Four appearance.
Just with Collin Gillespie, who is the top center in the world according to most experts , and Jermaine Samuels back and using his time to play as the perfect base, Wright is already the veteran spink and the team is ready to roll out game in and out.
Then add players such as Caleb Daniels, Brandon Slater, Justin Moore, and Trey Patterson, and just for fun, add Eric Dixon and Nnanna Njoku and Nnanna Njoku, who will be attempting to compensate for the loss of Jeremiah Roberts-Earl, who is currently playing with players like Justin Moore, Brandon Slater and Caleb Daniels. Thunder within the NBA The team is packed to the max with talent.
If Jay Wright can make this team consistent, especially in scoring the team shouldn’t be able to make serious title runs again.
