Value Add Bracketology: 13- to 16-seeds: UC Santa Barbara Most Likely Early Upset

The search for a surprise opening round upset can start with finding a low-seed with a few players that can contend with a high seed. If UC Santa Barbara wins the Big West they pose the biggest threat with the 50th best trio in the country led by Breitbart All-American UC Santa Barbara. Some traditional threats like Davidson do not appear to have a trio this year with much of a chance, showing up as a No. 16 seed based on their top trio.

While most teams on this list would be picked for a 3-on-3 tournament based on being the best team in their conference, this list also features Arkansas, Minnesota, St. Mary’s and Xavier who in a 3-on-3 tournament based on the ratings of their top 3 players at www.valueaddbasketball.com would be the final four at-large teams in the tournament and thus play each other in the opening round.
