One of the best ways to learn to make good NCAA Tournament selections is to look to the past. The teams and players are different every year, but history does tend to repeat itself, and teams that have won it all in the past have a lot of things in common.

The tournament expanded to its current 64-team format (I'm ignoring the play-in game because it is too silly to deserve consideration) in 1985. By looking back at the March Madness winners and MVPs since then we can to look for patterns and similarities, and see if those patterns lead us to any current teams that stand a better than normal chance. Here, then, are those March Madness winners. The MVP played for the winning team in every case:
