Dayton is one of just a few double-digit seeds to reach the Sweet Sixteen. (US Presswire )
After an insanely unpredictable weekend, you've got your Floridas, your Louisvilles, your Michigan States still alive in the NCAA tournament. Ditto for high seeds Michigan, Wisconsin and others you'd expect to be in the Sweet Sixteen. But as usual, underdogs are making serious noise.
Three double-digit seeds remain in the Big Dance. Which Cinderella has the best chance to reach the Final Four? RedEye investigates.
No. 11 seed, Midwest Region
Best tourney finish: Elite Eight in 2010
Believe because: Like VCU in 2011, which reached the Final Four, the Volunteers are an 11-seed that had to play a first-round game. Momentum, baby.
Doubt because: They'll have to beat No. 2-seeded Michigan, then probably face defending champ Louisville. Gulp. Plus, how fierce can a team be if its fight song includes the lyrics "once I had a girl on Rocky Top … wild as a mink as sweet as soda pop"?

No. 10 seed, South Region
Best tourney finish: Final Four in 1998
Believe because: Stanford's defense has been stout in this year's tournament, allowing just 53 points in its first win and 57 in its second.
Doubt because: The Cardinal rank 246th this season (out of 346 teams) with 11.8 assists per game. This is no time to be selfish, guys!
Cinderella cred: 3 slippers
No. 11 seed, South Region
Best tourney finish: Runner-up in 1967
Believe because: Ohio State and Syracuse both had a chance to upend the Flyers at the buzzer this weekend and failed. Sounds like fate has a hand in this.
Doubt because: One of the Flyers' losses this season was to Richmond, which finished the year 14-18. Which means they're as safe a bet as milk that's been left out all day.
