Every winter in college basketball, there are a few late risers in the S-curve. We're here to identify those teams in 2019 for you, before those schools make their move.

A week ago, we picked out three teams from Joe Lunardi's Bracketology that the College Basketball Power Index (BPI) projected to fall before selection day. But today is all about optimism. Based on Lunardi's latest Bracketology, BPI is here to buy stock on a few squads that we expect to be on the rise -- seedwise -- before it's all done.
