This isn't true at all.

Sure it is, but it bears some further explanation.

First, I don't meant 5-star literally. I mean it figuratively in that the teams that make the tournament every year and go deeper than the first or second round have highly rated and highly recruited players. Sometimes they are under recruited but prove during their college career that they are top players. They don't have to make the NBA to fall into that category.

Second, that excludes the occasional dark horse who gets hot and makes a run. They rarely repeat unless they have top talent. It also excludes the mid-majors who make the tournament due to their conference affiliations unless they do it consistently and go deep into the tournament. By deep I mean win 2 games or more.

A lot of mid major teams have that one thing that can't be taught and that is chemistry. These guys aren't highly rated but have played with each other for 3-4 years. Look at those Butler teams and Loyola-Chicago and how many Seniors were on those squads.

Good team play can often offset higher rated players. I think Frank gets good team play from his guys.

And people always overlook the importance of experience. The one and doners at UK and Duke are long gone before they come close to reaching their potential. A really good Senior like Sin can outplay them every time - which is why he was the SEC player of the Year, ahead of all the first rounders at UK.
