Regionals Draw and Final Rankings

This year, the NCAA decided to hold a selection show to announce the draw for Regionals. This would make sense if there were any kind of suspense involved in the draw (or any kind of draw at all instead of just a guy reading out what a committee decided), but since we already knew the placements of seeds 1-18, there was little reason for it to exist. Our 2012 Regionals are as follows:

NC State Regional
1. Florida
2. Ohio State
3. Penn State
4. NC State
5. Kent State
6. North Carolina

Illinois Regional
1. Oklahoma
2. Stanford
3. Denver
4. Illinois
5. Kentucky
6. Illinois-Chicago

Arkansas Regional
1. UCLA
2. Arkansas
3. Boise State
4. Missouri
5. New Hampshire
6. Maryland

Washington Regional
1. Alabama
2. LSU
3. Arizona
4. Washington
5. Iowa
6. Central Michigan

Utah Regional
1. Nebraska
2. Utah
3. Minnesota
4. Iowa State
5. Arizona State
6. San Jose State

Auburn Regional
1. Georgia
2. Oregon State
3. Auburn
4. Michigan
5. West Virginia
6. Michigan State

So there’s that. Thoughts on these placements? Is it possible to be excited about any of them? In the two weeks we have to wait, I’ll be putting together previews of each individual Regional, and I’ll probably try to convince myself there’s a greater chance for an upset than there actually is so that it will be more exciting.

Final rankings after the jump.

One thought on “Regionals Draw and Final Rankings”

  1. I just hope scoring is as consistent as it can be between 6 meets. The last thing we need is for 3 Regionals to be scored like the evening session of Pac-12s and for the other 3 to be scored like SECs. It could throw off the balance of teams in the afternoon and evening sessions at NCAAs considerably.
