Dick Vitale Reveals His "Big 4" Headed Into The 2017-2018 Season

Dickie V revealed his top four teams for the upcoming college basketball season.

The 2016-2017 college basketball season is over. North Carolina edged Gonzaga 71-65 to win its sixth national title, and third under head coach Roy Williams. The win pushed Roy Williams ahead of legendary UNC head coach Dean Smith for most national titles in school history.

But after two straight championship games and a win this year, is North Carolina a favorite to win next year?

Not according to Dick Vitale. The longtime ESPN college basketball analyst released who his VBDI (Vitale Bald Dome Index) likes this upcoming season.

Here are the four teams Dickie V likes for the 2017-2018 season.

None of these teams are surprising, as all four are perennial contenders for the national title.

Many though Duke was a favorite to win the 2017 title after the team's impressive run in the ACC Tournament. Kentucky, Duke, Arizona, and Louisville all bring in incredible recruits, and with the talent returning on each team, it's no surprise Dickie V sees all four having successful 2017-2018 seasons.
