Tom Oates: Your guide to building a better NCAA tournament bracket

Tom Oates: Your guide to building a better NCAA tournament bracket

The committee was also much higher on North Carolina than the writers, ranking the Tar Heels fifth among their Top 68.

Upsets dominate the first weekend but things return to normal after that: It may not seem like it, but most years only two or three double-digit seeds reach the Sweet 16. I'll give you an example.

"I think our kids will be motivated to play in Detroit", Izzo said. They'll win a couple, not a bunch.

"When I first presented him with data back then, Coach didn't receive it very well and was irritated when I offered an idea to make a change", Sanderson recalled. "(They have a) lot of good guys that play one through five, so it should be fun". McGill averages 13.5 points and 5.6 assists per game and earned second-team All-MAAC honors this season.

"But [the NCAA committee] they've got a hard job". I'm going to pull for my Auburn Tigers, but Michigan State is coming out of there, " Barkley said. Also, the No. 11 seeds have become the new No. 12s, winning three of the four first-round games in each of the past two years.

"I have changed like the wind", the 65-year-old Beilein said in an interview with The Associated Press. I think they have athletic issues. The big question was, 'where would the Bison be headed and who would they play?' That question was answered during Sunday's Selection Show. Cincinnati and Purdue are No. 2s that could be headed for early exits, in part because both are overseeded. Most experts had them getting a three seed and that's what happened. The Bison beat Arkansas as a 9-seed the next year for their only other NCAA victory. The only other team on their schedule this season that forces more turnovers than Montana was IL, who ranked sixth nationally at just under 17 per game forced. The only exception is Kevin Ollie at UConn, and he took Jim Calhoun's momentum and Jim Calhoun's roster.

Simpson, over the team's current nine-game winning streak, has shown shades of former MI guard Derrick Walton Jr., in the sense that he's done a little of everything. "The teams that go in clicking and playing their game the best are the ones that win games".

The Spartans arguably have the most talented team in the country, and Purdue has one of the most experienced. The ACC has nine teams in the field, matching the record it set previous year.

Virginia enters the tournament as the No. 1 overall seed, joined by fellow No. 1s Villanova, Kansas and Xavier. And for No. 1 seeds, Virginia and Xavier don't exactly have National Basketball Association scouts camped in their gyms.
