I am not even sure how to answer the question because I don't know at this point who are considered the traditional powers. UNC, Duke, Kansas, Kentucky come to mind but heck, UConn has won 4 titles since 1999. There have been some really good teams over the years in the tournament. I don't think there are this year. Kansas was down in my opinion and UCLA would have potentially been in the final four if 2 of their top players were not hurt. Duke was too young so I think they were flawed. I am an Alabama fan and Illinois fan. I watched every Bama game this year. They were just not that good. They rely too much on the 3 pointer so I saw the defeat against SDSU coming. I don't think Bama is a number 1 team in most years. I think my point is that I want to see a good basketball game in the finals. I don't see that happening this year as I think UConn is head and shoulders better than anyone remaining. Maybe I am wrong to want to big powers playing in the final. It's just my opinion.
