West has been the best in this year’s NCAA Tournament

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The NCAA Tournament has been dominated by the East, mixed with the occasional championship foray by a school from the Midwest. Teams from the West are usually left on the outside when the bracket gets down to the Final Four. The West is the best this season. On the men’s side, Gonzaga will play for a national championship. UCLA made a run to the Final Four. Five western teams made it to at least the Sweet 16 and seven of the Elite Eight were from west of the Mississippi. The women will have an all-West finale, Stanford and Arizona taking their Pac-12 rivalry to the game’s biggest stage in the first title game between two teams west of the Mississippi since 1986.
