MIDWEST vs. WEST
EAST vs. SOUTH

**Kentucky is the overall top seed

And that’s all she wrote. Here are my goals:

1. Get all #1 seeds right and in the correct region
2. Have every team in the correct seed position, plus/minus 2 spots
3. Get at least 50% of the second/third round locations correct
4. BONUS: Correctly predict one actual first round tournament matchup

I’ll write a recap post after the brackets are announced later today (hopefully)
