The Southern champion Mocs will try to emulate their team which, as a No.

Our models then see Gonzaga upsetting No. Gonzaga has the 3 rd longest active tournament streak at 18 appearances while Seton Hall makes their first appearance in ten years. Our models also think Gonzaga is under-rated as a No. Of the lower seeded teams, we also predict that No. These may be considered upsets but historically 9 and 10 seeds have won their fair share of games versus the 8 and 7 seeds, so these may not be as shocking.

The models have Big West champions Hawaii playing a close contest against No. Interestingly, Hawaii played all but one of their games in the states of Hawaii and California. Xavier has had a solid season and we think deserving of a high seed, but they did have a point loss to Villanova early this season and thus might not have the consistency to put together a streak of 6 wins to win the tournament.

Michigan State , No. They are matched up in the same region as Virginia for the 3 rd straight year Michigan State won as a No. Their six losses were by only a combined 22 points. We see them being the fourth team in the Final Four.
