We asked SI's most reliable hoops thinkers: Which team will bust the most brackets this year?

March 23, 2015

SETH DAVIS

SMU. Two words: Larry Brown. The Mustangs also have a Shabazz Napier--like "points" guard in Nic Moore, plus a bevy of bigs who can run, press and rebound.

CHRISTINA TAPPER

He can't suit up to nail a winning three, but Bryce Drew will return Valparaiso to bracket-shattering glory as its coach.

TONY SCHEITINGER

Three veteran guards on a squad that's looking for redemption makes Wichita State dangerous.

JOHN MCDONOUGH

Gonzaga. Not your typical bracket-buster team, but I would love to see the Zags crash their way into the Final Four party.

AMANDA YOUNGER

Even a proud Tar Heel has to admit that N.C. State's up-tempo offense might upset a few brackets this year.

MICHAEL COHEN

St. John's. They have senior experience and one of the best scoring guards in the country—D'Angelo Harrison.
