2013 NCAA Bracket Predictions: Baylor Playing Its Way Out
Just one week ago our 2013 NCAA bracket predictions gave Baylor about a 75% chance to make the tournament. Since that time, however, the Bears lost at Kansas State and at home against Iowa State. As a result, Baylors odds to make the NCAA tournament are now just 36%.
That drop of nearly 40% was the largest for any team in the country in our NCAA bracket predictions.
While a win at projected 5-seed Kansas State certainly would have provided a quality win, the Iowa State loss my have been particularly damaging. In fact, the Cyclones were not represented in last Monday’s bracket predictions.
Baylor does still have contests against three projected tournament teams, Kansas State, Oklahoma, and Kansas, but without a strong finish and a significant jump in our NCAA bracket predictions, the Bears likely will find themselves on the wrong side of the bubble on selection Sunday.
