The students, who participate in these tournaments, reflect excellence both on the court and in the classroom. CareerLocker is a valuable resource to teach you about the 132 colleges and universities represented by these college student athletes.

Every year NCAA releases a list of brackets for the tournament. UW-Madison professor of industrial and systems engineering, Laura Albert McLay, uses data analytic techniques to try to accurately predict NCAA winners. In an article about Dr. McLay’s work in On Wisconsin, a UW-Madison alumni magazine, she explains how she implements these techniques to more effectively predict the tournament winning schools.
