There's more! Remember when we said not to tune in late? That means making the NCAA Tournament as an automatic qualifier instead of creating additional at-large bids. This is a team that was projected to finish dead last in the conference.
Still, Lunardi, who correctly predicted 67 of the 68 tournament teams last season, has St. Mary's as a No. 10 seed. Both the Wolverines and Spartans are three seeds. If Louisville got in, it's entirely possible that Syracuse wouldn't have gotten in the Big Dance.
According to statistical analysis by the Washington Post's Neil Greenberg, the best indicator of which teams are likely to pull NCAA tournament stunners can be gleaned by locating the underdogs with "a high scoring margin while creating extra possessions through turnovers and offensive rebounds".
The Hurricanes will gather at the campus Rathskeller restaurant Sunday for a viewing party with their fans; and the UM women's team will be there on Monday to await its fate in the NCAA Women's Tournament. The first team out was Notre Dame, which played much of the season without its injured senior star Bonzie Colson. It wouldn't have made the hurt any easier to take for Paris Lee, Tony Wills and others, but it would have spared them more agony as each bracket ticked off without "Illinois State" being shown. The 6 seeded Gators are in the East region and will face the victor of the St. Bonaventure and UCLA play-in game.

Should the Cavaliers advance to the Round of 32, they'll face the victor of Kansas State and Creighton.
On Monday, March 12, head coach Sue Semrau and company will host its NCAA Selection Show Watch Party at the Dunlap Champions Club, the first time women's basketball is hosting its watch party at the new venue. CBS predicts the Wildcats will be a No. 10 seed and face No. 7 seed Texas A&M.
The Cavaliers also won the ACC Tournament after capturing the regular-season title by a whopping four games. The Tigers were No. 3 seed in the SWAC tourney; Arkansas Pine-Bluff, No. 1. The selection committee had Wisconsin as an eighth seed after the Badgers finished second in the Big Ten and reached the conference tournament final. "But I think we're capable of it".
