The days of high school seniors going straight into the NBA have been over for a few years now. It used to be that if a high school student was good enough he could go directly into the NBA draft. Now players have to play at least one year of NCAA basketball before going to the league.
This has a profound impact on college basketball. There is already plenty of parody in the sport of college basketball but with the current format (where students have to play at least one year before going to the NBA) the NCAA bracket will continue to get more and more interesting.
Every year it seems like the overall seeding of the teams means less and less. Sometimes it is clear who the top teams are but it seems that more teams seeded between 15-11 are taking out teams seeded between 2-6.
