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

Credit Pat Knight for the best motivational tactic of all time or, maybe, getting lucky as his maligned seniors won the Southland in spite of (not because of) their coach. Either way, it's a great championship for Lamar and a proud time for the Knight family. On the court, Lamar is a shade better than Vermont and I expect a win on Wednesday in Dayton.

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.
