Why They Are a Cinderella: After winning their league tourney, the Eagles earned a No. 15 seed and a match up with Wisconsin. The odds may be against them, but if they can shoot it as well as they did all year (better than 49 percent as a team, good for seventh in all of the nation), they could bust plenty of brackets. And remember, that 15 vs. 2 match up has a history of upsets.
