Welcome to the regional finals of Page 2's Coolest Name in the 2012 NCAA tournament bracket.
To review: Page 2 is entrusting you, dear readers, with selecting the coolest player name in this year's NCAA men's basketball tournament from our bracket of 64 candidates. The fourth-round ballot can be found at the bottom of this page.
Our criteria for coolness are similar to how Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart described obscenity in 1964: You know it when you see it. A great basketball name should be fun to say, fun to spell, or funky and unusual.
We began with 64. Now we're down to eight.
As the great Chick Hearn used to say, "It's nervous time."
Two No. 1 seeds, Cashmere Wright of Cincinnati and Scoop Jardine of Syracuse return to the Elite Eight, having reached this point in last year's bracket as well. Meantime, three upstarts -- No. 6 seed Staats Battle of North Carolina State, No. 7 Vander Blue of Marquette and No. 8 Tavon Sledge of Iowa State -- tackled higher seeds to earn berths in the round of eight. Iowa State and Syracuse each have two competitors still vying for this year's championship.
