Scout's Take

On the most talented teams in the NCAA tournament:

" North Carolina and Connecticut are head and shoulders above everyone else. The Tar Heels are easily Number 1, with three lottery picks in Marvin Williams, Raymond Felton and Rashad McCants to go with Sean May and Jawad Williams, a borderline first-rounder. UConn's Rudy Gay is a top five pick, Josh Boone could go in the lottery, Charlie Villanueva is a first-rounder and so is Marcus Williams. At most other schools a first-round guy is usually the best player in the conference; North Carolina and UConn are so ridiculously deep that Marvin Williams and Gay are first-rounders who have come off the bench."
