Baylor and Gonzaga are the teams that are running ahead for the favored teams for next year. With the number of players coming back it allows the teams to definitely have a heavily favored teams to win the championship next year.

The next couple of teams that are favored had to come surging back from behind this year. That is Virginia and Creighton.. Both of these teams had just hit their stride when the season ended up being canceled. Now, Creighton and Virginia both have to start building again for next year and hoping that they do not lose the momentum that the teams had just started getting built up.

A couple of teams that have had some good runs lately, but most likely have reached their plateau is San Diego State and Dayton. Both of these teams had a great chance of winning the championship this past season, but the coronavirus changed that. Now, these two teams are still counted towards having a chance of winning the title, but with these two teams the chance is past them now as the talent loss for the teams is gone.

The NCAA Tournament next year will be a shocking match. However, the tournament will be packed with a lot of excitement and definitely will give the tournament a little bit of hype over what they normally have. With that being the case, the team that will be able to hold up to the hype and keep their momentum from last season should be the Villanova Wildcats.
