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 state of South Dakota has placed a team into the NCAA tournament for the first time. Star guard Nate Wolters should get his points, but I expect Baylor's length to be an issue for the Jackrabbits at both ends of the floor. If these Bunnies are still playing in April, I'll walk to Mt. Rushmore.

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