NCAA Tournament West Region preview, breakdown, pick to win; Kansas, UCLA headline loaded field

The NCAA Tournament Selection Board sending Kansas No. 1 to the Western Region instead of the Midwest was one of the biggest surprises on Sunday of Selection. Even Kansas was stunned that he would not be able to play in Kansas City for the right to go to the Final Four.

“I was just shocked that we didn’t finish second overall,” said Kansas forward K. J. Adams. “But that happens sometimes. I’m just glad we play again. [We] last night we suffered a heavy defeat, but now we are preparing to bounce back and put on a good game wherever we play…we are just going to do what we have to do to reach where we have to be.”

This sets up an intriguing plot for what is arguably the toughest region in the NCAA Tournament.
