bracket busters. 31-3 record. . . . 2. Projected seed: 11. . . 2364

James Madison might be one of the hottest teams in college basketball right now as they are on a 13-game winning streak right now. The Dukes also are not sweating anymore as they already have their ticket to the NCAA Tournament punched.

James Madison is averaging 84.4 points per game and is shooting 36. 5 percent from beyond the arc. They also average 38.9 rebounds per game with a +5.1 rebound differential over their opponents.

A lot of people picking their brackets will overlook this team as they are a low seed and they are not a Power Five school. However, I would not look past this team, they are hungry and they are riding high on a winning streak.

In the Sun-Belt Tournament, the only close game was their semifinal game against Texas State, but the Dukes still won by five. They then blew out Arkansas State by 20 points in the championship to punch their ticket to the NCAA Tournament.

If you don't want to bust your bracket, you just might want to pick James Madison in the first round and depending on who they played next, in the second round as well.
