The 2012 NCAA Tournament's Midwest Region contains an interesting pool of teams. The North Carolina Tar Heels and Kansas Jayhawks were awarded the top two seeds respectively, but after them, there seems to be a drop off in terms of title-worthy teams.

The Georgetown Hoyas, Michigan Wolverines, and Temple Owls round out the top five seedings, but none of the aforementioned teams is a serious championship contender. Luckily for them, the beauty of the tournament is that top teams frequently get upset. Nobody is safe. 

The San Diego State Aztecs and Creighton Blue Jays seem to be this region's selections for sleeper picks, and both squads have the potential to make a deep run.

Here's a breakdown of each of the matchups in the Midwest Region.
