Not based on AP, committee, RPI, or anything else.
Just based on who you think has the best chance to win the NC.

1. Baylor
2. Notre Dame
3. UConn
4. Iowa
5. Mississippi State
6. Louisville (with healthy Carter and Fuehring)
7. Oregon
8. Stanford
9. Oregon State
10. Miami (darkhorse)

This is not ranked by who I think are the best teams, but rather who has the best chance to cut down the net based on factors such as travel, matchups, experience, size, etc.

3 UConn
4A Miss St
4B Louisville
6 Oregon
7 Stanford

8 Iowa
9 Miami
10 Iowa St

I think the Top 2 are most likely to win it all.

Won't be surprised if any of the next 5 get hot and win it.

Don't see anyone else capable of winning it all.

Based on who's playing the best now:

1) Notre Dame
2) Baylor
3) Stanford
4) Mississippi State
5) Iowa

I think those are the strongest teams in the nation right now, in that order. Louisville is too banged up. Oregon is weakening, and I saw a Ionescu in the Stanford game who is just not a floor general. Maryland proved it's just not Elite Eight material.

Notre Dame is getting better by the week. Stanford seems to have the best "team" in many years. It's not just a great post player and four others. They play like a team machine. Iowa appears to know how to integrate Gustafson in the offense. Baylor is as powerful as we thought/knew they'd be preseason. And Mississippi State has McGeowan. And that could be enough.

Connecticut will need to return to the form it displayed in the Notre Dame game from game three of the tournament until the end to be in the Final Four mix.

I would quibble a bit with the order a bit, but this is basically correct. I would say:

1) ND
2) Baylor
3) MSU
4) Louisville
5) UConn
6) Oregon
7) Stanford

That's it. Not gonna bother with 8-10, they won't win it, and I'd even be surprised if anyone beyond those 7 makes the Final Four.
