I agree with JBQ.The committee loaded that region to make it very
difficult for Wichita State to succeed.Official make it hard for the
little guys to win as well. They give larger school the benefit of having
"athletic" players who don't commit fouls, verses the small school

S16...WCC wins one game?? Kind of a waste for fans as well as the teams.
Let's make it like Class Basketball in high school.
