There are four week to go until the madness of the NCAA tournament begins. Jason King is counting the days and looking at the players and storylines that will dominate the next month.

Here's the full story.

The Longhorns are improving their tournament resume, but King says, they can't relax just yet:

Four teams from BCS leagues that will sweat it out until Selection Sunday

1. Texas: Rick Barnes has led the Longhorns to 13 straight NCAA tournaments, but this season he's traded first-round picks for gray hairs while guiding a team full of freshmen and a streaky gunslinger in junior guard J'Covan Brown. The Longhorns are dangerous and unpredictable -- but not always in a good way.

One thing the Longhorns have going for them is J'Covan Brown:

Four guys who aren't afraid to take the last shot

2. J'Covan Brown, Texas: The junior guard is often criticized for shooting too much, but on a team filled with freshmen and lacking other offensive weapons, he doesn't have much choice. Brown is known for going through phases when he can't miss. He's best when his team is trailing late in games.
