Midwest region overrated, no love for UNC, more bracket thoughts
While the committee granted the Cavaliers a No. 1 seed, it didn't do them any more favors. A region that includes Villanova (the Big East regular season champion; No. 2), Iowa State (the Big 12 tournament champion; No. 3), Michigan State (the Big Ten tournament champion; No. 4), Cincinnati (the co-AAC regular season champion; No. 5) and North Carolina (No. 6) will be hard for any team to win.
