A fairly new rule regarding the No. 1 overall seed in Selection Sunday allows that team to choose which region they would play in. Given that Kansas basketball was the clear candidate for the No. 1 overall seed, they’d have their choice of the West, Midwest, South, or East Regional.
A lot of the speculation before the cancellation of March Madness revolved around which regional Kansas would pick, and now, we finally know. Recently, head coach Bill Self said that the Jayhawks would have played in the South Region according to Matt Galloway.
While some fans may have believed the Midwest would be the obvious choice, the South really would have been a much more attractive region.
