Default Was UConn the best team this year?

Were they? If the NCAA tournament was played in a Best out of 7 Style would they have won?



I think so. Beating Villanova, Iowa St, Michigan St, Florida, and a red hot Kentucky was very very impressive. And all of those games they actually controlled throughout

No.

But in the tournament, you don't have to be the best overall team. In the end, with the current format, they won and that's what matters. I do think they lose a "best of 7" series to several teams.

I love it!!!

UConn Huskies!!! And to answer the question, Heck yeah we were the best. We are the last team standing and that is all that matters.

4-Time National Champions. We are up there with the North Carolina Tar Heels, Kentucky Wildcats, Duke Blue Devils, and Kansas Jayhawks. If folks don't know, they know now. UConn Huskies

yea but then it would be just like the NBA... single elim is more exciting especially with the amount of fluctuation, from game to game, in the NCAA.

I was really getting behind Wisconsin, and they played well. I think this year was a pretty good one for NCAA bball.

Surprised that Uconn won their final four and NC game, tbh, but gg to them.

Of course not. Just like the team that wins the Super Bowl isn't always the best team in the NFL. Single elim makes things more volatile but also more exciting.

UCONN was the best team at the right time which is all that really matters.

I'd love for you to show me where I said UCONN got lucky. I said they were the best team at the right time. I don't see how that is an offensive thing to about the team.
