NOTE: If Dayton upsets Ricmond today in the Atlantic 10 championship then they will become the 11 seed in Alabama's spot in the East region, thus dropping Alabama into the play-in game in the East and dropping Georgia out of the tournament. Also if Richmond loses then I will drop the to an 11 seed in the West and move Michigan St. to a 10 seed in the West.

Interesting possible matchups with this bracket. The Southwest region would have some amazing point guard matchups in the 2nd round and sweet 16 with this bracket. BYU's Jimmer Fredette vs. Xavier's Tu Holloway and UConn's Kemba Walker vs. Kansas St.'s Jacob Pullen. Then hopefully an Elite 8 showdown between the two best players in the nation in Jimmer and Kemba.
Another great Sweet 16 possibility would have two hot experienced teams in the Southeast region with Notre Dame playing Florida.
If I were to pick a first round upset in this bracket it would have to be #12 seed Gonzaga over #5 seed St. John's. Gonzaga is hot while St. John's will have to deal with the loss of versatile wing D.J. Kennedy.
