    Georgetown Hoyas(23-10, #3 Midwest Region)How They Got Here: Getting to the dance was never the problem for the Hoyas. Getting seeded properly in it was.

    Ohio State Buckeyes(27-7, #2 Midwest Region)How They Got Here: All together now: Thank you Evan Turner.

    Michigan State Spartans(24-8, #5 Midwest Region)How They Got Here: The Spartans made a name for themselves last year by running all the way to the NCAA Championship Game before getting crushed by North Carolina.

    NCAA Tournament Betting Matchups: #4s vs. #13s

    Maryland Terrapins(23-8, #4 Midwest Region)How They Got Here: The Terrapins were supposed to compete with the Dookies for the ACC Championship, but their run in the tournament was cut short by the suddenly surging Yellow Jackets.

    NCAA Tournament Betting Matchups: #8s vs. #9s

    UNLV Runnin' Rebels(25-8, #8 Midwest Region)How They Got Here: The Runnin' Rebels were consistently the third best team in the Mountain West this year.

UNLV marched to the conference final before losing to San Diego State.Player to Watch.....

    Kansas Jayhawks(32-2, #1 Midwest Region)How They Got Here: The Jayhawks captured the top seed in the Midwest by winning the Big XII crown and putting together a fantastic regular season.
