All Up In Your Bracket: West Region

Let’s turn our attention to the West region.

The team that is primed to pull off the first round upset: Minnesota.
The Gophers got on a pretty good roll at the end of the season and basically played themselves into the tournament. So Xavier may need to be weary. Tubby Smith has won a National Championship and has a ton of experience coaching in the tournament. Xavier can’t afford a bad game here.

 A top seed that may not make it out of the 1st weekend: Pitt.
I know Pitt played in the grueling Big East. And they did pretty good in conference. But I just see them as the most vulnerable high seed in this region. They just seem to be a little too shaky for me.

A team other than Syracuse that can win the region: Vanderbilt.
Vandy is a very intriguing game. They have a scorer in Jermaine Beal and a solid big man in A.J. Ogilvy. If you have those two things, you can be dangerous in the tournament.

Who we’re taking in the 1st round: Syracuse, FSU, Butler, Vandy, Minnesota, Pitt, BYU, Kansas St.

Who we’re taking in round 2: Syracuse, Vandy, Pitt, Kansas St.

Sweet Sixteen winners: Syracuse,Kansas St.

Regional Champion: Kansas St.
