NCAA South Regional (Men's Basketball)
The NCAA South Regional consists of two rounds of the NCAA Basketball Tournament that come in the second weekend of March Madness. The first session includes two games, and is often referred to as the Sweet 16. The winners of the first two games face off in the Regional Finals, also known as the Elite 8. The winner of the NCAA South Regional Final advances to participate in the NCAA Men's Final Four. Winning the NCAA South Regional Tournament is a huge step on the path to winning a Basketball National Championship.
The South Regional Semifinals and Finals are typically packed with talented teams. Some of those Men's basketball teams may have been seeded in the South Region so they can play closer to home in the NCAA South Regional. Those teams may include Auburn, Baylor, Kansas, Kentucky, Texas Tech, and Texas. The South Regional is also played in some great venues including the Alamodome, American Airlines Center, State Farm Arena, the Toyota Center, and KFC Yum Center. The other three regions are the East Regional, Midwest Regional and West Regional.
