Note: ESPN's Joe Lunardi assigned a team of Bracketologists to put together Insider's Tournament Tips, offering historical analysis of the bracket and in-depth breakdowns on all 68 tournament teams to help you make smart picks.

Lunardi's Logic

The Bears are an incredibly athletic and dangerous team. They remind me a bit of Arizona a year ago, a No. 5 seed which upset Duke to reach the Elite Eight. You see where I'm going with this? The Bears have an excellent draw and should play their way to the Elite Eight in Atlanta.

Plus, you can enlist the help of Insider's Bracket Predictor tool to aid your picks.
