Other teams in the lower half of the Southeast Region include BYU, St. Johns, Gonzaga, and Wofford. If the Spartans are to leave a mark on this season, a run out of this half of the region would go a long way in doing so. However, the upper half of the region is loaded with high quality teams including Big Ten foe Wisconsin.
Leading the Southeast Region is Pittsburgh who earned the #1 seed. Other teams who could play a factor in the upper half of the region include Kansas State, Butler, and Belmont who many feel could surprise Wisconsin in their game.
