I imagine they'll be the #1 seed everyone has going down first but if they play their game, I'm not sure there are many teams outside of Indiana and maybe Duke that can beat them. Unlike previous years where they struggled some after the 2nd round & Sweet 16, I think this team is built for March and can be a Final 4 contender.
I was a Stockton fan growing up, so I've definitely liked the Zag's teams over the years.. always have great guards ever since Stockton to the late 90's and so on.
They have a scary good team, no better frontcourt than Zaga (other than a healthy Kelly Duke). Olynk is a monster, not sure why the NBA scouts aren't all about him
