NCAA Tournament 2012 South Region Bracket: Kentucky, Duke Favored To Win Atlanta

The Georgia Dome in Atlanta will play host to the 2012 NCAA Tournament's South Region from March 22 through March 25. The winner of that Region will advance to the Final Four. As it stands, it looks to be Catlanta in a couple weeks, as the Kentucky Wildcats have earned the No. 1 seed overall and the top seed in the South. The other three Regional top seeds: the Michigan St. Spartans in the West, North Carolina Tar Heels in the Midwest, and Syracuse Orange in the East.
