Description: 10 college basketball teams with plenty to prove in February
The NCAA tournament field is starting to take shape – but it’s far from set. There are bubble teams galore. There are overachievers. There are underachievers. There are teams that need some signature wins to prove they belong. There are teams that have surprised us but that we just aren’t quite ready to buy in on.
Here are 10 teams that have something to prove in February – things to prove to the tournament selection committee, or things to prove to you and me.
10. LSU . Perhaps you heard: Ben Simmons is the best NBA prospect since LeBron James. And perhaps you also heard: Ben Simmons’ team is verrrrry much in danger of missing the NCAA tournament altogether. That’s what happens when you are 14-8, with losses to College of Charleston, Houston and Wake Forest. And yet I’ll stick by what I’ve said about this young (and now finally healthy) team: LSU can go deep into the NCAA tournament … if they make the NCAA tournament. LSU started the season 4-4, yes, but Craig Victor and Keith Hornsby were not playing (Victor because he’d transferred, Hornsby because of injury). They blew an opportunity against No. 1 Oklahoma last weekend. There aren’t all that many opportunities left.
