In honor of the traditional roots of the tournament, we here at the website continue to denominate the brackets by the compass, rather than by hosting city. It only makes sense. Would you rather win the "West Regional" or be crowned "Midwestern Regional Champion of the World?" And if we said "Salem Regional," would you know which part of the bracket we were talking about? Of course you wouldn't. And neither would James Naismith.
It's that time of year again. That glorious moment when you realize that there, in fact, are sports to watch on TV after the Super Bowl and before Opening Day. That's right, it's NCAA Tournament Time. More specifically, it's time to again celebrate...
West Region - Roseburg, Oregon
Midwest Region - Emporia, Kansas
