Note: ESPN's Joe Lunardi assigned a team of Bracketologists to put together Insider's Tournament Tips, offering historical analysis of the bracket and in-depth breakdowns on all 68 tournament teams to help you make smart picks.

Lunardi's Logic

The "Vanderbilt of New England" is back in the NCAA tournament for the first time since the end of World War II. A slightly better seed may have been in order for the Crimson, who will have their hands full with a veteran Vandy team that might overwhelm them on the perimeter. Expect a short stay for the Ivy champs.

Plus, you can enlist the help of Insider's Bracket Predictor tool to aid your picks.
