For me, it's the Tarheels. I guess you could say that I am biased since I live in North Carolina. It doesn't hurt that they have a really strong team either! I think both their offense and defense are solid. Not a single one of the big 8 are freshmen, so experience is on their side too. 

 

According to the experts, the Kansas Jayhawks are the front runners. Michigan State are currently second and my Tarheels are third. [2]  But anything can happen. We shall see!

I went to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, so I will be a Tarheel fan for life.

 

 

Even though I'm biased, I think they have a great shot at winning the whole thing this year. They ended the year strong, by being crowned champions of the ACC tournament. However, Kansas, Michigan State and Oklahoma are strong as well.

 

I love to root for an underdog team each year as well. I like the number nine seed in the South, which is the Connecticut Huskies. They had a quadruple overtime win in their conference tournament and pulled out a number of big wins to secure their spot [2]. I'm going to keep an eye on them - when I'm not watching UNC, of course.

I hate to seem like I'm echoing a preexisting bandwagon from other answers, but I'm going with Carolina too. I don't really pay attention to college ball anymore since I've turned into an NBA diehard, but Carolina was my school of choice as a kid and teenager when I still watched NCAA games. Unfortunately, our President and White House basketball enthusiast seems to think we'll go deep but not all the way.
