2016 NCAA Tournament: Midwest Region Preview, Predictions

Pretenders

(3) Utah– Coming off PAC-12 championship beat down by Oregon, Utah’s confidence could potentially be low. They should get past their first round matchup against Fresno State, but a potential second round matchup with Seton Hall could be dangerous. I wouldn’t count on Utah making it out of this bracket.

(4) Iowa State– The cyclones have officially been put on upset alert. They draw (13) Iona, who comes in on an 8 game winning streak in the first round. Iowa State has a ton of talent on the roster but, a potential second round matchup with Purdue could be too much for the cyclones to handle.
