Dick Vitale has made his national title pick.
College basketball guru Dick Vitale is ready to make some predictions for the 2017-2018 season. Friday, Vitale, using what he calls his VBDI – Vitale Bald Dome Index – gave fans a look at his top 25, his projected conference champions and his national title pick.
Surprisingly, Vitale is not picking Duke, UNC or Kentucky to win it all. He’s picking Arizona, led by Sean Miller, to cut down the nets in April.
I know people think I am going to say Duke. Or maybe Michigan State and Tom Izzo. I am going to go with Sean Miller and his Arizona Wildcats to cut down the nets in San Antonio. Allonzo Trier leads Arizona to the crown.
Oddly enough, Vitale has Duke and Michigan State ranked ahead of Arizona in his top 25 – at least as-of November 10.
