2017 March Madness: #4 Purdue vs #13 Vermont

2017 Caleb Swanigan Purdue Boilermakers NCAA Tournament March MadnessWe are here to help you fill out your brackets and finally beat your cubicle neighbor in your office pool this year.

Purdue were one of the preseason favorites to win the Big Ten this season. They accomplished that goal, but fell short in the conference tournament. I thought they deserved a higher seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Vermont went undefeated in the America East conference. Head coach John Becker will be getting a lot of phone calls this offseason and will have a shot to lead a bigger program.

2017 March Madness: #4 West Virginia vs #13 Bucknell

2017 Jevon Carter West Virginia Mountaineers March Madness NCAA TournamentWe are here to help you fill out your brackets and finally beat your cubicle neighbor in your office pool this year.

The Mountaineers have humbled some of the best teams in the country this season. Their wins against Kansas and Baylor put them on the map. They aren’t intimidated by any team.

Bucknell is a trendy upset pick in this year’s NCAA Tournament. They’ve had upsets in 2004 against Arkansas and their biggest one against Kansas in 2005. I guess anything could happen this year so they shouldn’t be overlooked.

Can Bucknell upset West Virginia in Buffalo?

2017 March Madness: #5 Minnesota vs #12 Middle Tennessee

2017 JaCorey Williams Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders NCAA Tournament March MadnessWe are here to help you fill out your brackets and finally beat your cubicle neighbor in your office pool this year.

No one expected Minnesota to be this good at the start of the season. Not only did they miss the NCAA Tournament and NIT last year, but they only won eight games. A college program doesn’t usually make this kind of turnaround unless they had a top recruiting class, which the Golden Gophers did not have.

Middle Tennessee dominated in Conference USA. They would have probably received an at-large bid if they failed to win the conference tournament.

Can Middle Tennessee pull off another upset?

2017-Monte-Morris-Iowa-State-Cyclones-NCAA-Tournament-March-MadnessWe are here to help you fill out your brackets and finally beat your cubicle neighbor in your office pool this year.

Iowa State hung with some of the best teams in the country in the Big 12. They didn’t exactly stand out since Kansas and Baylor got all the press. The Cyclones will be a tough out in this tourney.

As a #12 seed, Nevada is automatically a popular upset pick. #5 seeds have fallen to a #12 seeds in bunches over the years. I’m not sure Nevada is in the same league as Iowa State, but anything is possible.

2017 VJ Beachem Notre Dame Fighting Irish March Madness NCAA TournamentWe are here to help you fill out your brackets and finally beat your cubicle neighbor in your office pool this year.

Notre Dame had a successful run in the ACC Tournament and probably should have received a #4 seed in the tourney. They are a dangerous #5 seed this year.

Princeton won the first-ever Ivy League conference tournament and went undefeated in conference play.

Ivy League teams are always trendy picks to upset teams in the first round. Many have had past success doing just that. The players go to Ivy League teams for a reason, they play smart basketball.

2017 March Madness: #6 Creighton vs #11 Rhode Island

2017 Justin Patton Creighton Bluejays NCAA Tournament March MadnessWe are here to help you fill out your brackets and finally beat your cubicle neighbor in your office pool this year.

Creighton were among the cream of the crop in the Big East. The conference was better than expected and every team that made the NCAA Tournament out of the Big East deserved their bid.

Rhode Island didn’t want their fate to rest in the hands of the NCAA Tournament selection committee. They won the A-10 conference tournament and removed the ‘bubble team’ label.

Can Rhode Island upset Creighton in Sacramento?

2017 March Madness: #6 Maryland vs #11 Xavier

2017 Trevon Bluiett Xavier Musketeers NCAA Tournament March MadnessWe are here to help you fill out your brackets and finally beat your cubicle neighbor in your office pool this year.

Maryland is a star-driven team with Melo Trimble getting all the spotlight. They aren’t a very deep team, but you can’t argue with their record. They are a team you can’t take lightly.

Xavier looked like a possible top-four seed team until their start guard tore his ACL. The team is still stacked and the question is, which player will step up for them?

Can Xavier upset Maryland in Orlando?
