Pittsburgh

Seed: 8

Location: Pittsburgh

Record, RPI: 24-8, 44

Best player: G Tray Woodall averages a team-best 11.8 points and 5.2 assists.

How far can they go: If they succeed in a defensive struggle against WSU, the Panthers could cause top-seed Gonzaga some problems — but not enough for an upset.

Gonzaga

Seed: 1

Location: Spokane, Wash.

Record, RPI: 31-2, 6

Best player: 7-foot center Kelly Olynyk averages 17.5 points and shoots 65.2 percent. Foul him? Nah, he shoots 79 percent at the line.

How far can they go: Ranked No. 1, seeded No. 1. It’s time for Gonzaga to get to its first Final Four.

Southern

Seed: 16

Location: Baton Rouge, La.

Record, RPI: 23-9, 180

Best player: Senior G Derick Beltran averages 15.9 points and averages seven three-point attempts.

How far can they go: Let’s hope the Jaguars got some good Salt Lake City sight-seeing in.
