    creighton and south dakota booked their tickets for the second weekend with upsets for no. 2 seeds on Sunday.

    belmont and villanova may be the toughest double-digit seeds for the favorites to play on monday due to how tough both teams were in the regular season,

    belmont played a busy non-conference schedule to prepare for the big dance, while villanova has one of the leading scorers in the country and is one of the few teams to beat the connecticut huskies this season.

    predictions

    no. 12 belmont (+9.5) vs no. 4 Tennessee

    belmont made sure he was prepared for the ncaa tournament by playing a busy non-conference schedule.

    the bruins played three sec enemies, two acc opponents and the ucf knights, who advanced to the round of 32.

    All of those contests helped Belmont rise to the occasion and defeat the Oregon Ducks in double overtime on Friday.

    Belmont faces a tougher challenge on Monday with the Tennessee Volunteers, who will play in their own stadium.

    tennessee’s victory in the first round was a welcome sight after the vols struggled for consistency down the stretch. vols went 4-6 after Feb 1.

    the no. Seed 4 could be seen as a host susceptible to a surprise due to that form and Belmont’s battle proven roster.

    belmont has three scorers who are averaging more than 11 points per game, so their best players can match what tennessee can do.

    The main key for the bruins to cause an upset could once again be the three-point defense. they held Oregon within 19 percent from beyond the arc on Friday.

    Double-overtime win fatigue can be worrisome, but the Bruins have been competitive with every power conference team they’ve faced, and that confidence should help them stay within single digits in Knoxville.

    no. 11 villanova (+12.5) vs no. 3 michigan

    Any team that has an away win over uconn should be considered dangerous on the go.

    villanova was one of five teams to topple the powerhouse of women’s basketball. The other four teams earned single-digit seeds in the NCAA tournament.

    the wildcats have two losses since january 16, one of which came against uconn in the finals of the big east tournament.

    the big east tournament runner-up has to be considered dangerous for his winning streak and maddy siegrist’s play.

    siegrist is averaging 25.8 points per game and has 20+ points in nine of his last 10 games. He produced 25 points in the first round win over the BYU Cougars.

    Michigan wolverines should be wary of the threat posed by Siegrist, but it will be tough to contain one of the top scorers in the country.

    Like Tennessee, Michigan experienced a handful of losses late in the conference. The Wolverines lost four of their last six games before the NCAA Tournament.

    Wolverines might have a hard time containing Siegrist, and that may allow Villanova to stick around for the entire game.
