  • Get pumped up and Jay Bilas joins us now on SportsCenter to talk about it now.

  • J.

  • We're five games away from the end of the college basketball regular season.

  • What's the one thing that stood out to you the most from championship week thus far?

  • I think Ryan is that Illinois deserves to be on the top tier with Gonzaga, Baylor and Michigan.

  • Michigan's got that injury to Isaiah Livers that could impact that top tier status.

  • But Illinois is beyond legit.

  • They've got, I would assume you who's the best closer in college basketball.

  • He's got that black mask on now, looking like Batman.

  • And then they've got The Incredible Hulk and Kofi Coburn, who had 26 points against Iowa, and Luka Garza.

  • And they also have Trent Frazier, the lefty who is an excellent defender.

  • He can be a primary score if he has to be.

  • And Andre Curbelo is just a wizard with the ball, just a freshman.

  • And he's got next level ability and he's going to be a star in the future is a star right now.

  • I think Illinois has got national championship chops.

  • I'm not saying they're gonna win it, but they're one of the biggest threats to win it.

  • Along with Baylor in Gonzaga.

  • Okay, Joe Lunardi has has them as a projected number one seed.

  • We'll see how that goes now.

  • The tournament field is going to be set later this afternoon.

  • Give us some under the radar teams that we aren't paying enough attention to.

  • Well, first among the big shots, I think it's Houston.

  • Kelvin Sampson has a really good team, you know, they're not a great shooting team, but they're really good offensive team because they get a ton of offensive rebounds.

  • Justin Gorham is an outstanding offensive rebounder, but all their guys go to the glass and they pursue the ball so they get a ton of second shots.

  • They're excellent defensively.

  • And Clinton Grimes is their best player.

  • He transferred in from Kansas.

  • He's had an All America caliber season and then among the mid majors.

  • They don't like to be called that, but loyal to Chicago is really good again.

  • Outstanding Defensively.

  • Porter Mosher has a great big guy in Cameron Krutwig.

  • He has Long wings and Lucas Williamson and a hair a Glock they can really defend.

  • They're going to be a single digit seed this year.

  • They went to the Final Four a few years ago as an 11 seed there, a single digit seed, and they are going to advance in the tournament.

  • The question is how far they're going to win games in this thing, because the Ramblers are very, very good.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.
