It features Arizona, one of the best teams in the country. There’s Doug McDermott, Aaron Gordon, Marcus Smart and Xavier Thames, guys who will hear their names called in the upcoming NBA Draft. You need more local flavor? Ray Gallegos from Nebraska first made his name at West Jordan High and Baylor big man Isaiah Austin is the nephew of former Utah Jazz forward Ike Austin.

Can the Wildcats save a shockingly mediocre season with a deep run? Everyone is about to find out. Kentucky enters the Big Dance as the No. 8 seed in the Midwest. It will open the tournament against ninth-seeded Kansas State, with the winner likely getting a shot at the Shockers. This situation is not what the Wildcats — or anybody else — expected. For the first time since 1996, Kentucky was rank...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.

The path to the Final Four will be difficult for the Southeastern Conference-champion Gators, though, as Kansas (No. 2 seed), Syracuse (No. 3), UCLA (No. 4), Virginia Commonwealth (No. 5) and Ohio State (No. 6) give this region plenty of programs used to making noise in March. The Gators would face the winner of Colorado-Pittsburgh in the round of 32, while a potential game...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

While there’s nothing wrong with top-seeded Virginia, which just won the ACC with defense and gritty wing scorers, there’s also a lot to like about Villanova, which only lost four games all year behind three very good scorers. There’s also Iowa State, a dynamo team that can put up points in a hurry, and Michigan State, which is no stranger to Final Four runs. The East Region isn’t considered the toughest by most pundit...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.

Northern Utah got a good taste of the weather phenomenon in February, and it virtually flipped the outlook for water in 2014. “The Express has delivered storm after storm of heavy, wet, dense snow to northern Utah in February. It would be ever so nice if it continued for another week or two, at least,” said Randy Julander, Utah’s snow survey supervisor for the Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS)...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
