Breaking Down the Bracket - East Region

As the 2 seed last year Villanova failed to make the Sweet 16.  This year, a better team and a 1 seed, the Wildcats will look to make a Final Four run, but will most likely have to face a Rick Pitino led Louisville team in the Elite 8 to get there.  Nova has not lost since January 19th, and has 8 wins against tournament teams since then.   View image | gettyimages.com ...

tBBC 2015 March Madness Bracketology: East Region

The East Region may just have a number one seed that could exit the tourney very early with an NC State or LSU match-up looming for Villanova.

The lone B1G team in the region are the Spartans and they sit...
