    Simulation Sunday: Dayton wins first title as SportsLine simulates entire 2020 NCAA Tournament - CBS Sports

    "SportsLine simulated every game in a projected 2020 NCAA Tournament, and what a tournament it would have been

    We'll never know the winner of the 2020 NCAA Tournament after it was canceled due to the threat of spreading the deadly coronavirus. After such a wild and thrilling season, don't we want to know who would win the Big Dance? Of course we do, and even though that's impossible, SportsLine simulations can project the winners of each game and the national champion.

    And they did just that.

    The SportsLine simulation is just as unpredictable as the real March Madness might have been by projecting the Dayton Flyers as the winner of the 2020 NCAA Tournament.

    Take a look at how March Madness would have played out, according to SportsLine simulations.

    First Four Dayton
    Richmond 72, Wichita St 71: After a crushing loss, the Shockers, the last team selected in the tournament, have gone three years without an NCAA Tournament win

    Greensboro
    No. 6 Illinois 68, No. 11 Cincinnati 66: Illinois starts its first NCAA Tournament appearance in seven years with a narrow victory.

    Spokane
    No. 9 Colorado 67, No. 8 Houston 66, : The Buffaloes sneak past Houston, ensuring the AAC will have no team left standing in the second round...."

    Looks to me not a single upset in the the first round..

      Does anyone want to set up a bracket with the 68 teams seeded according to a composite of NET, KenPom, Sagarin, BPI, Quadrant W/L, etc. and then run the games all through a simulator?

        I say to wait two or four weeks and play the conference tournaments and then play the whole NCAA Tournament for real.

          I’m afraid that ship already sailed... we’d be up $hit creek without a paddle.

              So a computer played out how every game would go based on statistic?
