March Madness is all about sleepers, and the 2013 NCAA Tournament field is littered with both favorites and sleepers that you should be paying attention to as you fill out this year's bracket(s).
Cinderella stories like Butler, Gonzaga and VCU have captivated national audiences each year, and in the process fostered the belief that there are at least a few teams that will fall through the cracks each year and provide us with something special in March.
This year is no exception.
Gonzaga topped the AP poll after a brilliant season in the WCC, and that success has given way to other mid-majors entering this tournament with a lot of confidence, quality wins under their belts and players who could have been at bigger programs coming out of high school.
Add it all up, and sleepers are destined to emerge in this year's brackets. Take a look at these five schools that will be dancing well past the projections come March 19—and the start to this year's greatest two-week run in sports.
