Who will make the Final Four?
Insider's college hoops experts explain their Final Four, national title picks
- Getty ImagesKentucky, Michigan State and Duke are all in the national title mix this season.
ESPN Insider asked several of its expert analysts -- Jay Bilas, Fran Fraschilla, John Gasaway, Jeff Goodman, Seth Greenberg, Joe Lunardi and Miles Simon -- to explain their Final Four and national championship picks for the 2013-14 season. We've listed their answers below.
Duke Blue Devils
I went into more detail about the Blue Devils in my preseason opus, but Duke is versatile on both ends of the floor and has a truly special player in freshman Jabari Parker. Mike Krzyzewski will be able to use him all over the court.
Last season's struggles are a distant memory for this team. John Calipari's group is loaded at every position, and the exceptional talent among the Wildcats is power forward Julius Randle. He'll challenge Parker and Kansas' Andrew Wiggins to be the best freshman in the country this season. Randle will cause matchup problems for most of UK's opponents.
