Bucknell would win the tournament if it was based entirely on academics

Yeah, we’d beat Princeton

Inside Higher Ed, “the leading digital media company serving the higher education space,” has published a version of the 2017 NCAA Tournament bracket in which they predict the winner of it all based entirely on academics.

And that’s right, Bucknell would win it all.

Inside Higher Ed used “the academic performance of teams, as measured by the NCAA’s own… metrics for judging academic success.”

So if having an incredible Men’s Basketball team wasn’t enough athletically, we can proudly proclaim we have the smartest team in the tournament.

Sorry, Princeton.
