Tray Woodall hopes to change Pitt's luck in the NCAA Tournament/
When the pioneers decided to put a stagecoach together and head out west, they called it "open country". The west bracket is what I'm calling the "wildcard" bracket because it really is the most wide open bracket of the four. Gonzaga is such a shaky number one seed, it wouldn't be tough for the team to come out of this to be a #4 seed or below. Let's take a look at the parings and see who will leave the Ramada Inn early and head back to campus.
#1 Gonzaga vs #16 Southern U
I'm not high on Gonzaga's chances to advance to the Final Four, but they won't be derailed here. The Zags aren't sneaking up on anyone this year. Southern is in it's first NCAA tournament since 2006. Southern does have the late Manute Bol's son on their roster, and standing 6'9" his family nickname is "shorty".
#8 Pittsburgh vs #9 Wichita St
Hail to Pitt! Every one's fav...
