Of the 11 teams who have clinched automatic berths in the 2011 NCAA tournament, at least three are going to be popular picks to pull of upsets: Butler, Belmont and Old Dominion.
The Bulldogs aren’t the powerhouse they were last year when they reached the NCAA title game, but have won nine straight and have that look. Belmont won 30 games and swept its conference titles. ODU rebounds better than any team in the nation.
You want darkhorses, those three are good bets.
Or maybe that’s just me.
