Winner: Louisville

Do not be surprised if Arizona beats Utah. Utah is a good team but is still unproven, however on the other side, Arizona has posted wins against Gonzaga and Kansas. That’s enough to get them trough the next round.

The team that’s the most overrated in the region is Michigan State. They won plenty of games however, looking at the scores against tough teams like Texas and Penn State, it is easy to say that Michigan State has no easy road. They beat Kansas, but do not be surprise if they lose in the second round.

The sleeper team to win the region is West Virginia. Ruoff there captain is a true leader on the court. Their last game was in the Big East Tournament when they had an overtime loss against Syracuse. People forgot that West Virginia stepped up in the March Madness Tournament when they faced Duke last year. Expect the same again this year! West Virginia has played Louisville twice during the regular season, and has only lost to them on an average of about five points. West Virginia will flip the switch come Thursday.
