No. 5 Louisville | No. 7 Virginia | Full ListNo. 6: NORTH CAROLINA TAR HEELSLast Season: 33-7, 14-4 ACCThe Tar Heels lost Brice Johnson and Marcus Paige, but return three starters -- Joel Berry II, Justin Jackson and Kennedy Meeks -- from last years team that was within a basket of winning the national title. Roy Williams also brings back key reserves Isaiah Hicks, Theo Pinson (currently injured) and Nate Britt, so UNC should have a chance to compete for another Final Four berth.?-- Jeff GoodmanBest Case:?Elite Eight. If you can reach an Elite Eight, you can also be termed a Final Four team. North Carolina has suffered in recruiting over the past four years due to the academic scandal that has been hanging over the athletic department. Instead of NBA Lottery talent, the Tar Heels relied upon some excellent players that were very experienced. North Carolina was the best team last season because it was older, tougher and experienced winning. But, with Marcus Paige and Brice Johnson gone, some go-to players are gone, too. Still, there is quality talent coming back, and the Carolina system will produce another winner. Joel Berry and Justin Jackson need to become those go-to scorers, and Isaiah Hicks needs to stay out of foul difficulty and play more minutes.Worst Case:?First-weekend casualty. North Carolina will be very good, but still vulnerable to a bad shooting night or an injury to a key player. This is not a title favorite, but it is a contending team. Still, after losing key personnel from a Final Four run, it is not horribly unusual for a ho-hum 25-win season.No. 7 Virginia | Full List Dick Witcher Jersey .

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- A lot of programs refer to creating a culture that can lead teams through times of crisis.Iowas stunning 14-13 win over Michigan last week was proof that what the Hawkeyes have built in nearly two decades under coach Kirk Ferentz still works.Just one week after one of the more crushing defeats in Ferentzs 18 seasons, a 41-14 blowout at Penn State, the Hawkeyes rallied to topple the unbeaten Wolverines as a 24-point underdog.The remarkable response to the Penn State loss, guided by a veteran staff and players who have bought into what coaches were telling them even when the results werent coming, has put Iowa (6-4, 4-3 Big Ten) in position to finish a disappointing season on a high note. The Hawkeyes visit Illinois (3-7, 2-5) on Saturday.One of the points we made last week was that we probably werent going to be Big Ten champions this year. But youre either building toward it or youre taking away from it, and theres responsibility with that, Ferentz said. Its got to be a 12 month a year thing, and youre either on board or youre not.If any team appeared set for a late-season collapse, it was Iowa. Unable to stop the run and unable to catch the ball, Iowa had dropped two straight and three of its last five games. Just last week, Iowas players had talked about the need to trust their teammates and get back to the fundamentals.Most teams that say such things in November end up staying home in December.As it turned out, the Hawkeyes were right.Iowa defensive coordinator Phil Parker, who has been an assistant under Ferentz for nearly two decades, took a unit that had put together one of its worst performances in a long time and shut down the Wolverines..dddddddddddd Iowa held Michigan to just 201 yards despite losing starting cornerback Greg Mabin to an injury. Freshman Manny Rugamba stepped in and grabbed a crucial fourth-quarter interception that helped set up the game-winning drive.The big thing that coach (Ferentz) pushes is to stay focused, determined, linebacker Josey Jewell said. If you put your full effort out there and do your job, anything can happen.Offensive coordinator Greg Davis, now in his fifth season despite inconsistent results, recognized the need for Iowa to get the ball in the hands of running back Akrum Wadley as much as possible. Wadley, the only true open-field threat the Hawkeyes have left after injuries to receiver Matt VandeBerg and tight end George Kittle, had 167 combined yards and a touchdown reception to help Iowa escape from a 10-0 hole.We have a great culture here within this program. It goes into the entire offseason. Guys who work their tails off all year long, said quarterback and team captain C.J. Beathard.Beating Michigan wont erase the fact that Iowa, once the favorite to win the Big Ten West, will fall short of its expectations. All the Hawkeyes can do is hope that what clicked over the past week leads to success in the weeks ahead.Ferentz has given us certain examples in the past of Iowa history, certain things that he believes show the resilience, the determination of other teams and how that worked out for them, Jewell said. He really forces it into your head. But its a good kind of forcing.---More college football at ' ' '
