With the recent retirements of Coach K, Roy Williams and Jay Wright, the number of head coaches with multiple NCAA Tournament championships is a short one. There’s Bill Self of 1-seed Kansas, and the only other in the 2023 NCAA Tournament bracket is Rick Pitino of No. 13 Iona. He’s the only head coach in history to win championships at two schools, potentially making the Gaels a 2023 March Madness Cinderella pick.
First, Iona must get past No. 4 UConn, and the Huskies are one of the 2023 NCAA Tournament sleepers to target. With Kansas, UCLA and Gonzaga also in the West Region, there’s no shortage of proven programs in March Madness 2023. Before filling out your NCAA Tournament bracket 2023, be sure to see the 2023 March Madness bracket picks from the proven computer model at SportsLine.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulated the entire 2023 NCAA Tournament 10,000 times. It has absolutely crushed its March Madness picks, beating over 92% of all CBS Sports brackets two of the last four tournaments. The model also nailed three teams in the West and South Region Sweet 16 last year, including No. 5 seed Houston.
It knows how to spot an upset as well. The same model has produced brackets that have nailed 18 first-round upsets by double-digit seeds. It also nailed some massive upsets two years ago, including predicting the championship game between Gonzaga and Baylor and hitting Houston’s Midwest Region win even though the Cougars weren’t the No. 1 seed.
There’s no reason to rely on luck when there’s proven technology to help you dominate your 2023 March Madness picks. Now, with the 2023 NCAA bracket revealed, the model is simulating the matchups and its results are in. You can only see it over at SportsLine.
