Weston, Florida – Several colleges competing in 2010’s NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament feature more than just outstanding basketball teams – they boast sticker prices north of $200,000!

But a handful of these schools have imposed a full-court press on runaway tuition and other skyrocketing costs of attendance – they’ve stepped up their grants, scholarships and other financial aid awards.

College funding and planning consultants Peter “College Pete” Ratzan and Andy Lockwood filled out their bracket based on how much each college costs to attend and the amount of financial aid they dole out.

They really did this. Seriously. (It took hours.)

“It’s one thing to sit around the water cooler and rely on dumb luck to figure out how any team can stop John Wall or Jon Scheyer,” said Ratzan. “Containing the skyrocketing costs of college is a bird of another feather.” Ratzan said.
