Saturday Morning Quarterback

When you're hot, you're not

We're just over one week from Selection Sunday and be prepared to hear the phrase "hot team" a lot.

The ESPN talking heads will try to convince you that because a team is "playing well down the stretch", you should consider them for your bracket picks.

I used to buy into that. It makes a lot of sense. But it doesn't seem to happen all that often anymore, and I'll use a couple of examples from Wilson County boys' high school basketball to make my point.
