Kentucky’s path to the Final Four doesn’t look too daunting.

The top seeds in the Midwest Region are a Kansas team it defeated by 32 points earlier this season, a Notre Dame team with a history of struggling in the NCAA tournament and a Maryland team making its first appearance since 2010.

Kentucky earned the NCAA tournament’s No. 1 overall seed as expected and will face either Manhattan or Hampton in the round of 64 and either Purdue or Cincinnati in the round of 32. Kansas is the No. 2 seed in the Midwest Region, while Notre Dame is the No. 3 and Maryland is the No. 4.

CBS traditionally has revealed the four No. 1 seeds at the beginning of the selection show, but it opted not to do that this year to drag out the suspense. Wisconsin (31-3), Duke (29-4), and Villanova (32-2) were given the…

Here is a look at the results from Sunday’s Selection Show for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship.

Midwest Region

1 Kentucky vs. 16 Manhattan/Hampton
8 Cincinnati vs. 9 Purdue
5 West Virginia vs. 12 Buffalo
4 Maryland vs. 13 Valparaiso
6 Butler vs. 11 Texas
3 Notre Dame vs. 14 Northeastern
7 Wichita State vs. 10 Indiana
2 Kansas vs. 15 New Mexico State

Instant analysis: The No. 2 in Kentucky’s region was always going to be a loser. Sorry Kansas. … Indiana has to be happy to get in, but they have a tough road ahead with Wichita State in front of them and Kansas up next. … No. 3 feels a little low for Notre Dame. … The selection committee didn’t do Kentucky any favors. The Midwest appears to be the toughest region.

East Region

1 Villanova vs. 16 Lafayette
8 NC State vs. 9 LSU
5 Northern Iowa vs. 12 Wyoming
4 Louisville vs. 13 UC Irvine

This year’s Holiday release of the Air Jordan 11 already has a few enticing details floating around and the latest regards when exactly it will release – December 19th. Aimed at referencing the Chicago Bulls’ legendary 72-10 regular season, the shoe is rumored to feature a black leather base instead of the traditional cordura mesh fabric while a black patent leather will still arrive on the mudguard. An icy translucent outsole gives the shoe an almost “Space Jam” like finish, but the accents are red in color instead of blue. The retail price will be $220 USD, so start saving. We’ll be sure to update you with a photo of this upcoming Air Jordan XI once a first look at the pair arrives, but in the meantime stick with us for all of your release date needs.
