Bracket Tactics: Sunday's Tip of the Day

    
March 16th, 2008

Leading up to the 2008 NCAA Tournament, we'll be presenting daily tips to help you fill in your bracket. 

 

Today's Bracket Tactic

 

FACT: While #15 seeds are 4-88 in the 1st round of the NCAA Tournament since 1985, and 0-4 in the 2nd round, the 4 Cinderellas who did win a game each entered the tourney having gone 9-1 in their last 10 games, and had an overall winning percentage of 80% or less.


BRACKET TIP: American, Austin Peay, and UMBC each fit these criteria, while Belmont exceeds it by virtue of winning each of their last 13 games.


So, if you are feeling lucky, feel free to pick 1 of these 4 teams to wear the glass slipper in round 1, but under no circumstances should you pick any of them to advance to the Sweet 16.
