10 double-digit seeds who could do damage in the Big Dance
BOB LEVEY, AP
Every year the NCAA tournament has its share of Cinderella teams. Just last year, eight double-digit seeds advanced to the third round and three all the way to the Sweet 16.
These are generally teams from smaller conferences who have something to prove to the big boys of college basketball. They may also be high-profile programs who had a down year but managed to get an at-large berth anyway. Here are 10 schools that fall into one of those categories that have the talent to make some noise in the Big Dance.
Obviously these schools aren't locks to win games since they are considered underdogs, but they all have more than enough talent to make a run if the ball bounces their way.
BYU would surely make this list if not for the loss of Kyle Collinsworth, who is out for the season. As it is, the Cougars are still capable of winning but have less of a chance without one of their best players.
