We get some enticing matchups right off the bat in this year's NCAA tournament. In the Midwest region, Kentucky will look to right the ship and avenge some recent bad losses against Kansas State.

In the West, Baylor will look to continue its recent hot streak against a well-rounded Nebraska team. Oregon will be attempting to do the same against BYU.

The South's premier matchup features resurgent Pittsburgh against a Colorado team that surprised many when it knocked off California in Round 2 of the Pac-12 tournament.

North Carolina will try to get things back on track against Providence in the East. The Friars are riding a big high right now after defeating Creighton in the Big East final.
