2011 NCAA Tournament bracket set, March Madness play-ins begin Tuesday

Grabbing the four No. 1 seeds in the 2011 NCAA Tournament are Ohio State in the East bracket, Kansas in the Southwest bracket, Duke in the West bracket and Pittsburgh in the Southeast bracket. That the Panthers were able to grab a top seed comes as somewhat of a surprise. Though Pittsburgh was ranked as one of the top teams in the country for much of the 2010-11 college basketball season, the team had three key losses over the past three weeks to conference opponents, namely, St. John's, Louisville and Connecticut in the Big East Conference Tournament,. Pittsburgh will face the winner of a play-in game between North Carolina-Asheville and Arkansas-Little Rock, who play on Tuesday, March 15th to decide who takes the 16th-seed in the Southeast Region. Also playing a play-in game on Tuesday are the University of Alabama-Birmingham and Clemson. The winner of the Blazers-Tigers match-up will claim the No. 12 seed in the East Region and a spot in the first round against 5th-seed West Virginia.
