Mid-majors to remember come March

Mid-majors have done major damage in the NCAA Tournament over the last decade. Gonzaga and Butler reached a combined three national championship games during the 2010s while VCU, Wichita State and Loyola-Chicago all reached the Final Four. Butler parlayed its success into becoming a member of the Big East, while Wichita State is now in the American Athletic Conference.

This year’s tournament should be no different. Gonzaga and San Diego State are projected to be No. 1 seeds with Dayton in the mix for a No. 2 seed. There is a feeling that the field will be as wide-open as ever, which not only lends for a mid-major possibly winning its first title since the Big West’s UNLV in 1990 but also for a lot of upsets along the way.

Every year there are upsets and Cinderellas; it is just the names that change. So who are the mid-majors to know as we reach March? Here are 16.
