UCONN needs to work for Connecticut.

Any chance you could edit this to accept lower-case spellings? I kept typing "uconn" and telling myself that I saw them play yesterday haha

Yeah, UConn wouldn't work for me. I even tried "University of Connecticut"

This is very confusing to me as a Not-American. Geography appears not to apply

Okay so having done some reading, "regions" seems to be a misnomer really - it's just 4 arbitrary groups of 16 and the "regions" refer to the relative locations of the 4 central venues that group finals will be played at.

Calling them Groups A-D like the World Cup would make more sense, but you do you America

It used to be actual regions before COVID hit, but now, like bxtterflyfx said, it’s based on where the games are.

Actually, they started doing this a long while back (way before Covid). More and more, they started moving teams around to provide better balance in each region. Even the arenas where the games are played don't necessarily equate to the region until you get to the regional finals.

Its not based on where the college is, its based on where the game is going to take place

The NCAA decided to implement pods in the first two rounds. They did this in hopes of boosting attendance by making it easier for the fans of participating schools to travel. For instance, one West Region pod played the first two rounds in Buffalo, NY. However, the team that advanced into the Sweet Sixteen will travel to San Francisco--a western city. But the real geographic (& numerical) goofiness starts when you get into the conferences. The Big 12 has 10 teams while the Big 10 has . . . more than 10, at least 13. The Atlantic Coast Conference has teams from Indiana and Kentucky. Meanwhile, the Big East has a team in Nebraska! It is football (American-style) and TV deals that drive the craziness.

It looks like "st" is a type-in for Colorado State.

UConn and UNC still don't work. Also, please force users to type in the "st" after San Diego, as San Diego didn't make the tournament, but San Diego State did.

St will be required for San Diego now.

You guys don't know that they can't exactly do it based on the region because then the seeding would be unfair. From what I've seen, it's based off where they play the games. Stop being picky about the regions and names and junk!

I also think it's funny that the picture is a NCAA women's game. I would watch more women's sports if they were on more. :D

Even more funny, it's not even college basketball. The photo is from a European FIBA Cup women's game. Maybe there aren't many non-copyright NCAA game photos??

This is the photo used by Jetpunk. I made the 2021 version of this quiz last year and jetpunk changed the photo to that
