Sizing up Cinderellas

Each week during the college basketball season, ESPN Insiders Jay Bilas and Jeff Goodman will weigh in on the biggest questions of the sport.

The discussion: Which team from a likely one-bid conference looks most capable of a Cinderella performance in the tournament? (Wichita State excluded for obvious reasons.)

Jeff Goodman: Green Bay out of the Horizon. The league certainly isn't what it was when Butler was around, but it's still a quality mid-major conference and the Phoenix went 14-2 in league play. Green Bay also beat Virginia and nearly knocked off Wisconsin in nonconference play. Coach Brian Wardle has a big-time point guard in junior Keifer Sykes to go along with a talented, skilled 7-footer in Alec Brown. That's a pretty good place to start.
