NCAA Bracket Predictions 2012: Connecticut Huskies Predicted To Fall Before Second Weekend

The Connecticut Huskies enter the NCAA Tournament as an enigma, a squad talented enough to take down any challenger yet inconsistent enough to fall on any given night.

With Andre Drummond now in the fold, the argument can be made that the Huskies are more talented than last year's championship team, yet the Huskies received just a No. 9 seed. They also were unfortunate enough to be placed in the South Region, where a meeting with Kentucky looms if UConn can advance to round two.

In SB Nation's Bill Connelly NCAA Bracket Predictions 2012, he picks the Huskies to beat No. 8 seed Iowa State in round one but fall to Kentucky in the following round. Connelly chooses Kentucky, No. 2 Duke, No. 3 Baylor and No. 5 Wichita State to advance to the Sweet Sixteen from the South Region, with Kentucky being his selection to advance to the Final Four.
