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 Runnin' Rebels did not finish the year as well as it began, especially after a signature non-conference win over North Carolina. UNLV was a pedestrian 5-5 at the tail end of its schedule and was bounced in the Mountain West semifinals -- at home -- by New Mexico. One NCAA win is probably their limit.

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.
