NCAA tournament 2011: Pittsburgh still a No. 1 seed?

By Eric Prisbell

Connecticut knocked Pittsburgh out of the Big East tournament today, and now the question will be whether the Panthers should be a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. My initial reaction is that it is going to be difficult to unseat them. You are talking about a team with six top 25 RPI wins, the same number of wins Duke has against top 50 teams. Pittsburgh has won at Georgetown and at West Virginia and beat Texas on a neutral court. Their worst loss was against Tennessee. That all still says No. 1 seed ... for now. I want to be careful and not overreact to one outcome during conference tournament week. There is also a question about how much emphasis the selection committee places on many of the games this week.

Should Pittsburgh still be a No. 1 seed?
