ESPN Has NCAA Tournament Warning For UCLA, Florida, USC, Xavier And Others

ESPN has an NCAA Tournament warning for UCLA, Florida, USC, Xavier and several other programs that it says have “troubling” resumes heading into March Madness.

Joe Lunardi, the worldwide leader’s college basketball guru, recently examined the records of all the most interesting teams in the sport.

In his research, he identified nine in particular that he believes have worrisome resumes heading into the tournament.

Lunardi points out that the teams with the most troublesome resumes heading into March are: UCLA, Florida, USC, Xavier, Texas Tech, Utah State, Wichita State, Oklahoma and Stanford.

“Never a bad idea to check a team’s record against the field,” he tweeted out.

“WORTHY: St Mary (4-3), Cincy (4-4), NC St (3-3), Richmond (3-3), ASU (5-6). WORRISOME: Oklahoma (1-8), USC (1-6), Wichita St (1-5), UCLA (2-7), Florida (2-6), Stanford (2-6), Utah St (2-4), Xavier (3-9), TTech (3-6).”

The reason why Lunardi finds these teams’ resumes troublesome is because they have underwhelming records against other opponents in the field.

One example of this is Oklahoma, who is currently 1-8 against programs that will likely make it to the NCAA Tournament.

Interestingly enough, three Pac-12 teams find themselves in Lunadi’s ‘worrisome’ bracket.

Who will ultimately prove Lunardi wrong when tournament time rolls around? We are less than a month away from getting our answer once and for all.
