10 double-digit seeds with the best chances to make the Sweet 16

With consecutive NCAA first-round upsets in their pockets and four players averaging at least 13.6 points—including MAAC player of the year Alex Franklin—the Saints are a popular pick to knock off depleted No. 4 seed Purdue in their opening game.

But they slip on this list for two reasons—their likely second-round foe, Texas A&M, has beaten four NCAA Tournament teams since Jan. 30; and the Saints were shipped across the country to Spokane, Wash., which is 2,599 miles from home.
