The East Region is lead by the Indiana Hoosiers who finished 27-6 and were upset by Wisconsin 68-56 in the semifinals of the Big Ten tournament.  The Hoosiers finished the season just 3-3 with other loses to Minnesota and Ohio State.  This is the region that will screw up every ones brackets.  With teams like Marquette, Syracuse and Butler to cause some chaos.TV Schedule (EST):Wednesday, March 2016 Long Island vs. 16 James Madison 6:40 p.m. truTVThursday, March 216 Butler vs. 11 Bucknell 12:40 p.m. truTV3 Marquette vs. 14 Davidson 3:10 p.m. truTV5 UNLV vs. 12 California 7:27 p.m. truTV4 Syracuse vs. 13 Montana 9:57 p.m. truTVFriday, March 228 N.C.
