Who wins the South Region?
Duke. They're good.
Who got the best draw?
UCLA, because they actually made it into the field. I mean, WTF?
OK, in reality I'd say Iowa State. I'm high on them and I think they have a nice chance to run to the Elite Eight.
Who got screwed?
Whoever got left out of the tourney for UCLA.
Who wins the #5 vs. #12 matchup?
Stephen F. Austin breaks Bill Walton's Pac-12 loving heart.
Who is the region's Upset Lock Of The Week Of The Century?
Eastern Washington, because I can't get away from the 14 seeds.
