Turn to Analytics for a Better NCAA Tournament Bracket

There is nothing more important to do this week than to put together a solid bracket for the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. OK, that may be a bit of an overstatement, but if you consider the amount of time and energy spent at work this week on picking teams and watching games (and reading this blog), you’ll have to agree there’s more than a little truth to what I say.

But it’s not just you and me trying to figure out whether Bucknell is the new Butler in the 6 v. 11 game in the East regional. Two college professors and a third gentleman using SAS analytics correctly picked the 37 teams that received at-large bids.  (The other 31 teams earn bid through winning conference tournaments.)
