Wichita State

Scott Sewell-USA TODAY Sports

With the 2014 NCAA Tournament now upon us. Selection Sunday results are in and the Midwest Region is now set. Not too many surprises with the No. 1 seed in this region being the Wichita State Shockers who have yet to lose a game all season long at 34-0.

The Shockers don’t have an easy path, however, as the Michigan Wolverines are the No. 2 seed and the Duke Blue Devils are the No. 3 seed.

The first round starts Tuesday, but the second-round matchups are Thursday, March 20, and Friday, March 21. This year’s tournament seems as balanced as any field in recent memory and March could be the maddest it has ever been. Upsets will be aplenty this week and for the rest of the college basketball season, so buckle up and get ready to watch some great basketball.
