Identifying One March Madness Team From Each Region That Will Get Upset

Posted by on 3/20/2015 1:31:20 AM

The NCAA tournament is one of the most unpredictable events in all of sports and while the experts will spend hours breaking down the numbers in an attempt to try and handicap how it will all play out the bottom line is that there is a reason why they call it the March Madness tournament. Underdog teams are bound to win at least a handful of games and while it’s impossible to say for sure how things will play out it’s not impossible to narrow down the options. Here is a quick look at one team from each region that will likely get upset.

West Virginia – Midwest Region

The Mountaineers are a tough team that does a good job on the offensive glass and plays solid defense but if there is one area where they might struggle it would be at the offensive end of the floor where the pressure of a tournament like this could hurt them. It won’t help that they will play an upstart Buffalo team that is making it’s first NCAA tournament appearance as a 5-versus-12 seed in the Midwest Region either. The Bulls are an upstart team that understands the importance of pace and sharing the ball and there is no doubt that Bobby Hurley’s Buffalo team has the potential to shock the world in their opening game against West Virginia with an upset win.

Xavier – West Region

Xavier is a solid team but they have areas that could by exploited by an underrated BYU team that has the potential to put up some big point totals in this tournament. The Cougars haven’t been very good at the defensive end of the floor but their fast tempo and ball distribution usually leads to higher scoring totals and the fact that they didn’t really stand out this year makes them somewhat underrated heading in to this matchup.

NC State – East Region

There are some experts that think the Wolfpack can make a considerable run in this tournament and they certainly have the potential to win a couple of games but this is a team that can be very streaky with Cat Barber, Trevor Lacey and Ralston Turner leading the way at the guard position. LSU has the stronger frontcourt and if they can get out on the perimeter and play tough defense to keep the NC State offense in check they could very well emerge with an upset in a 8-versus-9 clash.

Utah – South Region

The Utes have certainly heard all about their potential to be upset in the opening round by this point as it seems as though just about every expert has Stephen F. Austin winning their opening game in another 5-versus-12 matchup. The Lumberjacks are a deep team that can score and they won from this seed a year ago so just about everybody has jumped on them to upset Utah. The Utes are still the favorites and they have enough firepower to win this game but don’t be surprised if they falter considering the history of the No. 5 seed and with so many experts picking Stephen F. Austin for the upset.
