Lexington: Pick Stanford to Go Deep...

By - March 15, 2007

...when you fill out your brackets a year or two from now.

As much as Stanford fans might find themselves throwing up in their mouths (or just changing the channel) at the tail end of their team's throttling at the hands of Louisville, they would be wise to keep the faith.

Eleven of this group's 12 top scorers are underclassmen -- including nine freshmen and sophomores. Star-in-waiting Lawrence Hill is a soph and twin towers Brook and Robin Lopez are finishing their first years. As bitter a pill as this one might be to swallow, tournament experience is still tournament experience. Barring the unlikely, Stanford will be back in the NCAAs next year and should contend with UCLA, Washington and Arizona for the conference championship.

But, yeah, this is pretty fugly.
