It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out the basics of March Madness.

It's simple. What's not so simple, though, is gauging each of the 68 participating schools' talents when it comes to smarts.

Duke is the team that appears most able to match skills with smarts as the number-four overall ranked school. They land in second place on this infographic behind Harvard.

Meanwhile, Virginia's place on the table goes well with their reputation of out-smarting their opponents.
