That said, Syracuse turned a 10-seed into a Final Four appearance past year, so there is some danger in completely dismissing the 10's. The Tar Heels are such a dynamic offensive team, with Joel Berry and Justin Jackson leading the charge. So who's most or least likely to screw up?
The initial analysis from the bracket reveal is that Villanova has a fairly manageable road to the Regional Final at Madison Square Garden. The team's initial challenger and then the victor of the other game in their "foursome". You throw in what happened on Wednesday, now they got a lot of memories.
College basketball fans - the choice is yours.
The no. 2 seed in Gonzaga's bracket is Arizona (30-4), which the Zags beat comfortably in December at Staples Center. A 13 (Hawaii), 14 (Stephen F. Austin) and 15 (Middle Tennessee) all won previous year, while 14's have been particular good Giant Killers lately, knocking out a No. 3 in each of the last four tournaments.
Fifth-seeded Virginia has a chance to make a deep run. The Seahawks are on a seven-game winning streak while Virginia is a pedestrian 4-5 in its last nine contests. Duke played great in Brooklyn, but will its defense hold up? Still, the Zags should have the pieces to withstand it. Both are loaded with talent, including several freshmen expected to turn pro later this year, and while each struggled at times due to inexperience and injury, in recent weeks they seem to have cohered, respectively winning the Atlantic Coast and Southeastern Conference tournaments. It's that underdog feeling that we can all connect with that makes March feel so special.
The worst odds for any of the top two seeds in the tournament is Louisville at 10-1, and there's a fairly sizable drop off from them, UCLA (10-1) and OR (15-1) to the rest of the field.
The NCAA announced on Sunday that UNO, making its first trip to the NCAA Tournament since 1996, earned a No. 16 seed in this year's tournament and will be playing fellow 16-seed Mount St. Mary's in a first-round play-in game on Tuesday in Dayton, Ohio. The Bulldogs won a close matchup in the first round against No. 16 seed Southern, but were shocked in the round of 32 when No. 9 seed Wichita State won 76-70 on its way to the Final Four.

However, it was forced to acknowledge better recent growth than expected, with GDP expanding a year ago by 1.8 per cent. The organization said fiscal policy should be used to boost demand, especially if coupled with structural reform.
Look back at nonconference play: Teams from lesser-regarded conferences are harder to evaluate. We're happy we won the Big East Tournament. The crowd was raucous in its support of the Terps - and in its lack of support for the officials - but the Cats weathered that storm and got a huge win, one of their biggest this year.
Anyway, one of those four losses?
The Jayhawks have first-week games in Tulsa, and the Sweet 16 is in Kansas City.
Hey, who's that in Kansas's bracket? If they were matched up, Wichita State would be a 6- or 7-point favorite, if not more.
