Andy Katz Breaks Down Midwest Region

Andy Katz on our "group of death"

Apparently he didn't catch the Big East Tournament where every single player on our team was firing on all cylinders. #savagelife (am I doing that right?)

3. If you're looking for one player who can carry his team to the Elite Eight in this bracket, it's Ohio State's Evan Turner. He's likely either the outright or co-national player of the year. Turner has made big shots throughout the season and is as versatile a player as any in the country. He's more than capable of taking the Buckeyes past UC Santa Barbara, Georgia Tech/Oklahoma State and then either San Diego State, Tennessee or Georgetown (sorry Ohio, you've got no shot against the Hoyas).

5. The team that may be the hardest to figure in this region is No. 3 Georgetown. The Hoyas have looked awesome at times in crushing Duke at home and getting to the Big East tournament title game, but also have fallen flat like when they lost at Rutgers. No need to worry about Greg Monroe or probably Austin Freeman. If Chris Wright is on then this squad can advance.

14. What's the most intriguing matchup that won't happen? No. 4 Maryland versus No. 3 Georgetown in the Elite Eight in a rematch of a Hoya smackdown from a year ago in Orlando at the Old Spice Classic. It's a rivalry that should be played every year but isn't anymore.

Stay Casual, my friends.
