Look out for these potential NCAA tournament sleepers

When the 68-team NCAA tournament bracket comes out every year, I love to look at sleeper teams that can make some noise.

My definition of a sleeper is a team seeded fifth or lower. Come on, picking a team like Kentucky that was seeded fourth, that is not really a sleeper.

Let's look at four teams capable of pulling off surprises, one in each region.


Arizona Wildcats
Sean Miller always has his teams prepared come tournament time. His successful record proves it. Ryan Anderson has enjoyed a terrific season and the guard play has steadily improved. This is a tough bracket with Kansas, but the Wildcats are dangerous.


Baylor Bears
Scott Drew has a battle-tested squad that has gone through the rigors of Big 12 play. The Bears will be happy they don't have to see Kansas or Oklahoma for a while. Rico Gathers will dominate on the glass.


Wisconsin Badgers
Greg Gard did a terrific job, taking over when Bo Ryan retired. Several players have experience from playing in last year's national title game, and that will help. Nigel Hayes is a workhorse up front, and Bronson Koenig provides long-range shooting. This team plays tenacious defense, which is so vital in the one-and-done.


Seton Hall Pirates
The Pirates were so impressive in winning the Big East tournament, beating Xavier and Villanova along the way. Isaiah Whitehead has really matured and is playing very well. Angel Delgado is a fierce rebounder and a force inside. Don't sleep on Kevin Willard's club!
