Ranking the Sweet 16 from most to least likely to win the national title

A chaotic, upset-laden first week of the NCAA men’s tournament has yielded a Sweet 16 nobody saw coming.
The interlopers include a 101-year-old nun, a team once predicted to finish last in its league and a 15 seed whose school motto is “Expect a Miracle.”
There are as many Sweet 16 teams from the Summit League as from the Big Ten and the Big 12.
There are twice as many teams from the long-struggling Pac-12 as from any other single conference.
