NCAA Bracket 2011: West Region Bracket Features Duke, San Diego State

The 2011 NCAA Men’s basketball tournament brackets are now being released we now have a completed West region bracket, based out of Anaheim. Duke is the number one seed in the region, with San Diego State picking up the two seed. That is actually incredibly interesting given that Anaheim is driving distance from San Diego. It’s not home court advantage and at the end of the day the Aztecs will still have to win some games, but their path to the Final Four is just a little bit easier because of that.

If I had to pick a darkhorse I guess I’ll be a regional homer and go with the Arizona Wildcats. At the same time, I could see them getting knocked off by Memphis, so maybe it’s not the best darkhorse pick. I actually really like San Diego State’s chances at this point. They’re playing really well, they can bang with the big teams, and they’re playing in a good location. Sign me up!
