Dick Vitale's "Gut" Says This Team Makes The Final 4

The 2018 NCAA Tournament bracket will be unveiled this evening. Who's excited?

No team is going into the NCAA Tournament playing better this year than Virginia. The Cavaliers have been, arguably, the best team in the country all season.

Virginia won the ACC's regular season title. Saturday night, UVA won the ACC Tournament title, beating North Carolina.

Tony Bennett's team is now 31-2. A No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament is surely locked up.

Are you going to be picking Virginia to advance deep into your bracket this year, though? A lot of people probably will not.

Virginia has carried really good teams into the NCAA Tournament in recent years. And the Cavaliers have usually disappointed.

Only once in the last four years, though, has Virginia made it to the Elite Eight. In two of those four years, the Cavaliers lost in the second round.

Will that be different this year? Dick Vitale thinks so...

The ESPN college basketball analyst says his "gut" says this is the Virginia team that makes the Final Four.

I'm with Dickie V. I'll be picking this Virginia team to go deep (and maybe even win it all) in my bracket.
