2016 NCAA Tournament: West Region Preview, Predictions

The Cinderella

Is there one from the West this year? Probably not.

However, the teams up top are, by far, the weakest of all the four regions, so a Cinderella is possible.

Not just because of their smarts, Yale qualifies as that Cinderella in this bracket.

No. 12 Yale will start off against Baylor in the infamous 12/5 matchup. Should they win, they’ll then take on the winner of the Duke-UNC Wilmington matchup.

Yale in the Sweet 16 is not out of the realm of possibility.
