For college basketball fans, Christmas falls in March. Seeing the bracket revealed and printing ten out to practice is much more enjoyable than opening up any Christmas present. As people fill out their bracket, they will be faced with many questions: How many first round upsets do I pick? Will a 12 seed beat a 5 seed again? How far can I have a Cinderella go? Who wins it all? While we can break it down all we want, everyone knows you can’t exactly predict the games flawlessly. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t try to give ourselves the best chance to win as possible. So without further ado, here are some teams from each tier that you should be thinking about when filling out your bracket.
