College Basketball 2010-11: 10 Mid-Majors to Watch Other Than Butler and Gonzaga

Mid-majors don't receive the respect they deserve. Because the mid-major conferences have weaker teams than the power conferences, many in the college basketball world overlook the talent and ability of the Butlers, Northern Iowas, and Sienas.

Every year a mid-major shocks the country by going on a run. Last year alone, four mid-majors reached the Sweet 16 and Butler was a half-court shot away from a national title.

This slideshow is meant to help you avoid overlooking the best mid-major programs in the country.

Note: Gonzaga and Butler are mid-majors, but they are not included in the slideshow because they are nationally ranked. Also, the Atlantic 10, Mountain West and Conference USA are considered a level above mid-major.
