Bracketology 2012: North Carolina Draws Top Seed, Ohio State No. 2 In West Regional

Chris Dobbertean of SB Nation released his latest bracketology, and it does seem to attract some great looking matchups to the West Regional. Phoenix might be in store for some great college basketball a few weeks from now.

With of course no strong West Coast power ready to take the fourth number one seed, the bid will likely go the weakest of the four top seeds, which will likely be the ACC Tournament Champion if Duke or North Carolina. Kentucky, Syracuse and Michigan State are pretty locked in barring shocking upsets in their conference tournaments. Right now, with North Carolina obliterating Duke in their final regular season matchup, the Tar Heels seem to be the team most likely to get there, although they'd probably have to win another matchup with Duke in the tournament final to ensure the bid.

Ohio State has dropped off the past few weeks, but a win over Michigan State in their final game of the season puts them back at a solid No. 2 seed. The Georgetown Hoyas and the Baylor Bears draw the next two top seeds with UNLV and Gonzaga also making it in. Could be some highly compelling basketball if the West Region draws a bracket this favorable.
