2011 NIT Tournament Bracket: Colorado A One Seed, Colorado State A Three Seed

The 2011 NIT Bracket has the Colorado Buffaloes and the Colorado St. Rams as a No. 1 seed and a No. 3 seed, respectively, in the same bracket. The Buffs host No. 8 Texas Southern on Wednesday, March 16 at 7:00 p.m. Mountain. The winner faces the team to emerge from the No. 4 Cal vs. No. 5 Ole Miss matchup. The Rams host No. 6 Fairfield on Tuesday, March 15 at 7:00 p.m. MT. The winner advances to face the victory of No. 2 St. Mary's vs. No. 7 Kent State.

Alabama, Boston College and Virginia Tech received the other No. 1 seeds. All four No. 1 seeds were legitimate snubs by the NCAA Tournament selection committee.

NIT Selection Committee Chair C.M. Newton said the committee spent the most time deliberating on the No. 1 seeds because those teams host the opening round games. Will a championship be in the futures of Alec Burks, Cory Higgins and Levi Knutson?

Dayton, who won the 2010 NIT, will look to repeat. They are a No. 3 seed this time.
