March Madness 2015: 4 Cinderellas Most Likely To Shatter Brackets
‘Cinderella’ has become commonplace in recent years, a term tossed around after Selection Sunday each March.
Everyone knows the story by now. An unknown low-seeded team upsets a basketball powerhouse and then goes on a run that makes everyone become a fan.
We were all shocked when George Mason made it to the Final Four in 2006. Virginia Commonwealth came along and made fans of the masses when they got to the Final Four in 2011. Our jaws were on the floor when the high-flyers from Florida Gulf Coast made it to the Sweet Sixteen in 2013.
Why do these stories captivate our hearts? Maybe it’s from hearing the David vs. Goliath story so many times. Maybe it’s because we relate to the underdog. Who knows? But one thing is for sure — it’s one of the things that makes college basketball such a great game. It’s part of the reason we fill out millions of our own bracket predictions each year.
So let’s take a look at what teams have the biggest potential to polish up and look like the most amazing spectacle at the dance.
