Simulations From What If Sports

Close Calls for our Top 2 Seeds in the South Region! Baylor and Creighton both advance, albeit on very shaky terms. After the Round of 64, Michigan State has to be the favorite to get out of this region and get to the Final Four, especially with defending champion Virginia out of the picture. But anything can happen!

Tomorrow starts the Round of 32, featuring the Midwest and West Regions, with the East and South Regions coming back Friday for their next games.
