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

Lunardi's Logic

The best thing you can say about the Golden Eagles is that they played the RPI game extremely well. The Eagles have two wins against New Mexico State and one at home against Memphis, and that's about it. You knew they'd make the NCAA field, but Marshall is the second-best team in Conference USA.

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

Once the action starts, follow all the games on your desktop with our discreet RealTime Scoreboard.
