NCAA tournament 2011: Where will the top seeds play?

By Eric Prisbell

I don't know if you're into where teams are headed as much as I am. But I try to keep tabs on this because I have to pick a first-round site to cover and it's difficult to figure out which one will have the most compelling stories/games. The NCAA selection committee makes every attempt to place highly seeded teams close to home in the first and second round. So with that in mind, pencil in Ohio State and Pittsburgh for the Cleveland sub-regional and Kansas and Texas for the Tulsa sub-regional. As of today, here is how I think the sites will look:

CLEVELAND
Ohio State (1 seed)
Pittsburgh (1)

TULSA
Kansas (1)
Texas (1)

CHICAGO
Notre Dame (2)
Purdue (3)

DENVER
Brigham Young (2)
North Carolina (4)

TUCSON
San Diego State (2)
Syracuse (4)

CHARLOTTE
Duke (2)
Georgetown (3)

TAMPA
Florida (4)
Villanova (4)

WASHINGTON, D.C.
Connecticut (3)
Wisconsin (3)
