Picking the Wildcats

Most likely upset

It's one of the great stats of the NCAA Tournament:

At least one No. 12 seed has upset a No. 5 seed in 17 of the past 18 years. And for six years in a row, the No. 12 seeds have combined for at least two victories.

So, you will pick a 12th seed, or two, in your bracket.

For a truer upset, we're digging deeper and going with No. 13 Davidson over No. 4 Maryland in the Midwest region.

Davidson won 29 games, is ticked it didn't get a better seed, and is a young, aggressive team that won't be awed by the Terps.

Davidson's Stephen Curry, the son of former NBAer Dell Curry, is the second-highest scoring freshman in the country at 21.2 points per game.
