On his way out to Greece where he’s coaching again, Rick Pitino tweeted out his choices for teams that could win the national championship -

I’m packing for Greece, now let’s see if I can correctly pick the ncaa champion for the third year in a row. Who I would like to see crowned? UK, UL, TTU, Gonzaga. Who could be crowned? UVA, OhioSt, Michigan St, Auburn. Who will be crowned, @DukeMBB

You can see the full tweet and thread here.

It’s interesting though...there’s one team that most people give a shot that he doesn’t list here. Wonder who it could be?
