Where are the fans of the Sweet 16 teams?

Where you’d expect them to be, near the schools, but some programs tend to break out of their regions, at least when it comes to Facebook users.

The proof is in these maps, which track the more than 1 million Facebook users who liked a page of one of the 16 remaining teams in the NCAA Tournament.

There's also a map of Facebook users who like Kansas and Michigan, opponents in Friday’s South Region semifinal in Arlington, Texas.

Who knew the Jayhawks are liked in Maine?
