Oh, my bad misread. That is a horrible draw for the #1 overall seed
I don’t think they follow the natural region principle that closely. After the top 4 seeds are bracketed they check for a disparity in strength. They add up the seed order and none of the regions can vary by more than 5. (Ie Vols #1 overall + Michigan #5 + UNC #9 + Syracuse #13 = 28. Then compare to the other regions.

Brutal, tho. What do they call it in soccer, the "Group of Death" or something similar ? That would be the "Region of Death"

Tennessee and Duke w the toughest regions based on overall seed. Gonzaga the easiest. I feel like they could have evened them out better and still maintained their guidelines
