Several ESPN college basketball analysts offered their opinions on the NCAA Tournament South Region that includes Kentucky.

South Region

Seth Greenberg on region: “South region is brutal… it’s physical, has athleticism.”

Jay Williams, on tough road for No. 1 seed Virginia: “South is the most difficult region.”

Jay Bilas: “Arizona is grossly under-seeded (as a four seed).”

Bilas on biggest problem for No. 1 overall seed Virginia: “Arizona. They are big and physical and they can handle Virginia.”

Greenberg on Virginia: “This team is different because they are better offensively than recent teams.”

Bilas: “A lot of defense in this bracket. I still think Arizona and Virginia are the best teams in this bracket.”

Greenberg on Stephen F. Austin: “That team absolutely disrupts you. They turn you over.  They are physical. They don’t let you run offense. That is going to be a rock fight.”

Bilas on Stephen F. Austin: “The press. They force turnovers. They are a very good basketball team.”

Bilas: “Arizona is one of the best teams in the country with one of the best players in the country.”

Greenberg: “Arizona is as talented a team as there is in the tournament.”

Bilas on Nevada: “They are very, very talented with major conference talent.”
