NCAA Tournament 2014: 5 Underrated Teams to Keep an Eye On

5 Underrated Teams to Watch in March

5 Underrated Teams to Watch in March

With the NCAA Tournament not too far away, the bubble watch has begun to grow and fans are starting to wonder if their team will be dancing or sitting at home watching the fun unfold.

It looks like this year's field is as talented and deep as any in the past and it will be interesting to see just how crazy March Madness will really be this year. With the field as even as it could possibly be, there will be some underrated teams to watch.

Tennessee

Tennessee

Although the Volunteers don't exactly have a great resume and no wins against the Top 25, they demolished a fellow bubble watch team in Missouri on their way to win No. 20.

When Tennessee is playing its best, it is very scary. Check the score against Virginia in the beginning of the season in which the Volunteers beat the now-No. 5 Cavaliers by 35 points.

Gonzaga

Gonzaga

With a recent slow stretch, going 5-3 in its last eight games, the Bulldogs seem like a team that will be limping into the tournament. However, the Bulldogs began the season 21-3 with a couple slip-ups.

If they can forget the losses to poor teams this season, the Bulldogs will do what they do best and scare teams in March.

Oklahoma State

Oklahoma State

With Marcus Smart's suspension and recent seven-game losing streak, it seemed like the Cowboys were done for. However, Smart came back and gave Oklahoma State new life, helping them climb out of the gutter to win four out of its last five.

This team is far too talented to overlook. If they get a No. 8 or No. 9 seed, the No. 1 seed will be dreading a third-round matchup.

Harvard

Harvard

For the fourth straight season, Harvard has become the regular season champs of the Ivy League. Tommy Amaker has turned this team into a tournament mainstay. This team is no easy out despite the lack of top competition, pulling an upset against New Mexico last season.

Never count out the kids from Harvard -- especially under Amaker.

Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh

You would think a 22-8 record would be enough to guarantee an ACC team a spot in the tournament, but Pittsburgh's ticket has not yet been punched due to a 5-6 record since January 27.

The Panthers lost to three of the conference's top teams in that span by a combined nine points. Pitt is not too far off from an elite team in the ACC and even closer to a 25-5 record.
