UConn is the No. 3 seed in the West Region. The Huskies will face Bucknell on Thursday in Washington, D.C. A win over Bucknell would match them up against either Cincinnati (Mick Cronin!) or Missouri's 40 minutes of hell.
Duke is the No. 1 seed in the region and San Diego State is No. 2. Texas is the fourth seed.
All three of UConn's trips to the Final Four have come out of the West.
