The South Region is lead by the Kansas Jayhawks who finished 29-5 and the Big 12 champions.  They have a tough road after their 1st round matchup with Western Kentucky as they have to face the winner of North Carolina and Villanova.  The Tar Heels are playing their best basketball at the moment and the Wildcats beat Louisville, Syracuse, Marquette and Georgtown during Big East play.  If they are able to survive they will most likely face VCU or Michigan to advance to the Elite 8.   Georgetown is the 2 seed in the South and have a bit easier path, but will most like face the Florida Gators in the Sweet 16.TV Schedule (EST): Thursday, March 214 Michigan vs. 13 South Dakota St. - 7:15 p.m. CBS5 VCU vs. 12 Akron - 9:45 p.m. CBS  Friday, March 222 Georgetown vs. 15 Florida Gulf Coast - 6:50 p.m. TBS8 North Carolina vs. 9 Villanova - 7:20 p.m. TNT3 Florida vs. 14 Northwestern St. - 7:27 p.m. truTV7 San Diego St. vs. 10 Oklahoma - 9:20 p.m. TBS1 Kansas vs. 16 Western Kentucky - 9:50 p.m. TNT6 UCLA vs. 11 Minnesota - 9:57 p.m. truTV*Updates all week long, check back daily!1 Kansas vs. 16 Western KentuckyPick Distribution - Yahoo (%) ESPN (%) CBS (%)Kansas will be on the more popular Final Four teams and maybe even National Champions.  They will have to get by North Carolina in the Round of 32, VCU or Michigan in the Sweet 16, and most likely Georgetown in the Elite 8.  Not an easy road, but they have the right players and coach to do it.2 Georgetown vs. 15 Florida Gulf CoastPick Distribution - Yahoo (%) ESPN (%) CBS (%)The only real threat to the Hoyas, en route to the Elite 8 is Florida, but I don't see them being much of a problem for Georgetown. 3 Florida vs. 14 Northwestern StatePick Distribution - Yahoo (%) ESPN (%) CBS (%)Florida is a safe pick to ride to the Sweet 16, but Georgetown should end their tournament.4 Michigan vs. 13 South Dakota StatePick Distribution - Yahoo (%) ESPN (%) CBS (%)The Wolverines haven't won back to back games since January and VCU could prove to be a tough matchup in the Round of 32.5 VCU vs. 12 AkronPick Distribution - Yahoo (%) ESPN (%) CBS (%)A VCU-Michigan matchup will be fun to watch but it won't help much because Kansas should beat either team in the Sweet 16. 6 UCLA vs. 11 Minnesota Pick Distribution - Yahoo (%) ESPN (%) CBS (%)No impressed with UCLA, so I am taking the upset.  Florida will beat either team in the Round of 32.7 San Diego State vs. 10 Oklahoma Pick Distribution - Yahoo (%) ESPN (%) CBS (%)A toss up game with littel implication on the rest of the bracket.  Georgetown will defeat either opponent in the next round.8 North Carolina vs. 9 VillanovaPick Distribution - Yahoo (%) ESPN (%) CBS (%)Both teams had interesting seasons but North Carolina is the better of the teams at the moment.  Either way Kansas ends their Cinderella dreams in the Round of 32.Potential Bracket Busters:4 Michigan Wolverines5 VCU Rams8 North Carolina Tar HeelsPotential National Champions:1 Kansas Jayhawks2 Georgetown Hoyas
