NCAA Tournament Preview: South Region

This article is part of our NCAA Tournament Preview series.

The opening round in the South figures to be competitive as any we've seen in recent years, with several higher-seeded teams on upset watch. Buckle up, because some of the most entertaining basketball of the entire tournament is going to be coming out of this region.
