Which lower seeds are most likely to spring first-round upsets in the NCAA tournament?
We all want to pick the right champion in our NCAA tournament brackets, but half the fun of filling out picks for every game is trying to be the genius who picks No. 13 Princeton to beat No. 4 UCLA (1996) or who has No. 15 Coppin State knocking off No. 2 South Carolina (1997). Given that the biggest upset of all would be a year without any, can you spot the most likely spoilers?
Not all upsets are created equal, of course. History tells us No. 9 seeds win about as often as No. 8 seeds, there always seems to be at least one No. 12 seed knocking off a No. 5 seed and a No. 16 seed has never beaten a No. 1 seed. But separating each round of potential upsets by seeds, which teams are the best bets this year?
