If you’re looking for those wonderful, funderful Cinderella teams, the ones that will earn you big props from your friends, family, and co-workers for spotting, then you need to do some work. Look for well-balanced squads with impressive scoring margins, solid rebounding and turnover margins, and few flaws.
Also, make sure that they aren’t playing one of the more dominant teams in the field. An example of a potential Cinderella this year? 14-seed Davidson is a top-20 scoring margin team that thrives at the free-throw line and doesn’t turn the ball over.
They could make some noise against Marquette, one of the weaker top seeds in the tourney.
