The South Region features Gonzaga as the one-seed, Georgetown as the two-seed, and Florida as the three-seed.

The Jackrabbits (25-9, 13-3 Summit) are already beating touted as a team that could pull off a first round upset against the Wolverines. They are lead by explosive guard Nate Wolters, who you will remember scored 53 points earlier this year in a game against IPFW.

If Michigan advances past SDSU, they will play the winner of (5) VCU vs. (12) Akron. While everyone is dangerous once they get to the tournament, Michigan should be playing into the second weekend of action.

The game will tip at 7:15pm Thursday night on CBS.
