2011 NIT Tournament Bracketology Projections: Boston College, UAB Lead ACC, Southeastern Schools

With the NIT selection show scheduled for 9 pm EST (EST? ET? EST? Everything is upside down!) on ESPNU, here's a look at how the bracket is shaping up for Southeastern schools. Courtesy of The Bracket Project, a site that aggregates brackets from around the bracketosphere while also making its own predictions.

Boston College (ACC) and UAB (Conference USA) are the highest-ranked teams with ties to Southeastern conferences, both earning 1 seeds. VCU (CAA) arrives as a 2 seed, though they make the NCAA Tournament in one of Jerry Palm's recent brackets. Maryland takes a 4 and Miami a 5, giving the ACC three NIT teams.

Ole Miss is the only SEC team featured, showing up as a 6 seed. College of Charleston (SoCon), Bethune-Cookman (MEAC), Murray State (OVC), and FAU (Sun Belt) hold it down throughout for other small conferences.

Of course, all this depends on what the NCAA Tournament selection committee decides to do at 6 pm on CBS. Clemson, Alabama, Georgia, and Virginia Tech could wind up down here, while USC is among the teams some are thinking could make the big show, including SB Nation's own Chris Dobbertean.
