The NCAA Tournament Name Bracket: West Region, Part 1

Jonathan Daniel

Go west, young man, and find some excellent names.

For those who don't listen to the podcast, here's the deal: We sat down with SB Nation's resident name expert, Rodger Sherman of Sippin' on Purple, to pick the best name on the roster of each team. We covered the first half of the bracket in yesterday's podcast, and will be unveiling the second half of the bracket next week. We're doing the first three rounds all at once to narrow the bracket to 8 names, then playing them off during Final Four week.

Next up: The first half of the West regional. You've got Gonzaga's one man German prog rock band Rem Bakamus, Wichita State's biblical Chadrack Lufile, Ole Miss' man in the trench coat, Cade Peeper, and LaSalle's "Hey hey hey WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?" entry Steve Zack. Or maybe it's YonDarius Johnson, Aron Nwankwo, Sam Dekker, or Rodney McGruder.

So who has the best name in the first half of the West Regional? You have until noon on Sunday, April 25 to cast your ballot.
