Every year there is one region that is so brutally loaded with potential Final Four participants that it is dubbed "The Region of Death". Well, this year it is the West Region, and frankly it's not even close. Gonzaga, Syracuse and Michigan have all been the Final Four in the past three years. Florida and Florida State have each made the Elite Eight in the past three years. This region features two of the best offensive players in the country (Marquette's Markus Howard and Murray State's Ja Morant), while also featuring two of the best defensive teams in the country (Syracuse and Texas Tech).
