The Jay Bilas tournament upset audit

Jeremy Brevard/USA TODAY SportsAccording to both Jay Bilas and the GK model, the Minutemen were over-seeded as a No. 6.
UMass Minutemen vs. Iowa Hawkeyes/Tennessee Volunteers
GK upset odds: 78.4 percent / 70.1 percent
As the model identifies, UMass was overseeded as a No. 6, and Tennessee and Iowa are both far more capable than the No. 11 seed would suggest. Iowa is deep and talented, and particularly with Gabe Olaseni, the best hedge defender I saw this season, the Hawkeyes can contain Chaz Williams off ball screens.
