Lots of upsets opened up the tournament in the Midwest Region earlier today. Will we see the same with the West Region that kicks off now. Gonzaga and San Diego State are the featured teams in this bracket, but don’t forget about Seton Hall, a highly touted pick to make it to the Elite Eight, and Oregon. This is not a draw to be taken lightly and any school that comes unprepared will not stand a chance.
