March Madness 2013 may be a little over ten days away, but don't tell that to teams who are on the tournament bubble! The Horizon League will kick off round two of play tomorrow night when Wright State takes on Youngstown St. at 6:00 p.m. EST followed by Green Bay vs. Illinois-Chicago at 8:30 p.m. EST.
The winners of these two match-ups will advance to take on the two power houses of the Horizon League - No. 1 seeded Valparaiso and No. 2 Detroit Mercy.
The Horizon League printable bracket is a great way to keep up with all the action and a great way to get primed for the big March Madness Tournament that kicks off on March 19.
Coming into the 2013 HLT, Valparaiso and the University of Detroit were the overwhelming favorites to win the tournament and it looks like they may be on a collision course to meet up in the finals.
The current odds as of March 6 according to thespread.com to win this year's tourney have Valparaiso at 1/2 and Detroit at 7/4. All of the other remaining teams are listed at 7/2.
