The good news for Baylor, who received all of their losses in conference play, is that only one other Big 12 team (No. 8 seed Iowa State) is in their regional.
If the Bears can advance past a feisty South Dakota State team, they could face a tough second-round game against No. 6 UNLV, who defeated UNC earlier in the year and have been widely considered as a dark-horse Final Four contender all season.
Looming later in the bracket is No. 2 Duke, who knocked off Baylor in the 2010 Elite Eight, as well as No. 1 overall seed Kentucky. NBA scouts would love to see a Baylor/Kentucky game with match-ups of future lottery picks in Perry Jones III vs. Anthony Davis and Quincy Miller vs. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.
