Bracket projection: Texas Southern

Texas Southern tourney tested (0:29)

ESPN Bracketology Insider Joe Lunardi commends No. 16 Texas Southern for playing a tough schedule in preparation for March. (0:29)

Back in the NCAA tournament for the fourth time in the last five seasons, the Texas Southern Tigers out of the SWAC aren't your average NCAA bracket buster. With former Indiana head coach Mike Davis (2002 Final Four) manning the sidelines, as well as a 7-foot-2 rim protector and a 5-foot-7 point guard who shoots lights out, the Tigers stand out more than most SWAC teams. After stealing a bid in the SWAC tournament, can they cap a 15-19 season with the school's first ever NCAA victory?

ESPN Insider has your answers, as Joe Lunardi has enlisted a team of bracketologists to compile advanced metrics, key scouting intel and best- and worst-case tournament scenarios for all 68 teams to help you make smart picks in your bracket.
