8. Kentucky Wildcats
Talent and history are working for Kentucky here. It seems like anytime they are overlooked, they perform better in the tournament. In 2014, the Wildcats made it to the championship game as an 8-seed, and in 2011, they advanced to the Final Four as a 4-seed. Kentucky surely has the talent to make a deep playoff run, but their inability to find consistent scoring options outside of Jamal Murray have kept them from being a top team. If they can get sustained production from their other talented freshman, Kentucky will be a tough out for any team.
