NCAA Tournament 2013 bracket: West Region topped by Gonzaga

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE

Gonzaga's best season in program history earned it the first No. 1 seed in program history.

The 2013 NCAA Tournament's West Regional will terminate in Los Angeles, and Gonzaga, the best college basketball team west of the Rockies this year, is the region's No. 1 seed.

The Bulldogs compiled a 28-2 record and won the West Coast Conference's regular season and tournament titles, lost only to Butler and Illinois, and took the No. 1 spot in the national polls for the first time in program history in 2012-13. For their reward, they get a short trip to San Jose, a prospective jaunt down the coast from Spokane to L.A. for Sweet Sixteen and Elite Eight games, and a regional with No. 2 Ohio State, No. 3 New Mexico, and No. 4 Kansas State.

"Justice has been served," CBS' Seth Davis said. Greg Anthony agreed, calling the Zags' selection a "historic moment."
