The Midwest region is loaded to the gills, boasting streaking teams, historic programs and hall-of-fame coaches. Situated in this region we have five teams in the top 16 of the AP rankings, seven in the RPI top 25 and three major conference champions (plus Memphis and Creighton). The home of the #1 overall seed resembles a lion’s den more so than a charitable path to Atlanta. But alas, the show must go on.
