All up in your brackets: NCAA Tournament 2012 West Region

1 Flares 1 Flares ×

And finally, lets talk about the West region.

The team that is primed to pull off the first round upset: Virginia

Another team we’re not in love with, but we’re not in love with their opponent (Florida) either. Virginia plays a slow grind it out style which could bother the Gators. If Florida is unable to make this an up-tempo and they struggle shooting the three, Virginia could pull the upset.

A top seed that may not make it out of the 1st weekend: Louisville

We’re really not sure which Louisville team will show up to the tournament. Will it be the Louisville team that just made a run to win the Big East Tournament or will it be the Louisville team that got its doors blown off by Providence in early January? It looks like it may be the former, but we really don’t know.

A team other than Michigan State that can win the region: Missouri

For our money, Missouri is the best team in this region. We think that teams in this region will struggle matching up with the Tigers. They have great guards and that alone can carry you a long way in the tournament. Look for them to win the region.

Who we’re taking in the 1st round: Michigan State, Memphis, New Mexico, Louisville, Murray State, Marquette, Florida, Missouri

Who we’re taking in round 2: Michigan State, New Mexico, Marquette, Missouri

Sweet Sixteen winners: Michigan State, Missouri

Regional Champion: Missouri
