NCAA Bracket 2011 Southeast Region: Florida, Old Dominion Among Southeastern Teams Playing Nearby

Complete printable 2011 NCAA Tournament brackets are available at SB Nation, but here's a look at the region local to Atlanta. Though the Charlotte pod is in another region, D.C. and Tampa will both contribute teams to New Orleans' Southeast region. Pitt earns the region's top seed -- if you're wondering why Pitt was sent all the way to Louisiana, it's because it's actually the closest available regional site due to a weirdly Gulf Coast-y arrangement this year.

If Arkansas-Little Rock can win their play-in game against UNC-Asheville, then beat No. 1 seed Pitt in DC (...), they'll have the region's best home-court advantage. So, no problem!

Florida gets a cozy first and second game, playing near Gainesville in Tampa. BYU also has a very friendly locale in Denver, while somehow Wisconsin is stuck with a trip to Tucson, Arizona. Talk about styles making fights -- keep an eye on Belmont-Wisconsin.

For far more expertise on the subject than I could offer, here's Chris Dobbertean's take on the NCAA Tournament Southeast region.

No. 1 Pittsburgh vs. No. 16 UNC-Asheville/Arkansas-Little Rock (March 15/16 play-in game in Dayton, Ohio) on Thursday in Washington DC

No. 8 Butler vs. No. 9 Old Dominion on Thursday in Washington, D.C.

No. 5 Kansas State vs. No. 12 Utah State on Thursday in Tucson

No. 4 Wisconsin vs. No. 13 Belmont on Thursday in Tucson

No. 6 St. John's vs. No. 11 Gonzaga on Thursday in Denver

No. 3 BYU vs. No. 14 Wofford on Thursday in Denver

No. 7 UCLA vs. No. 10 Michigan State on Thursday in Tampa

No. 2 Florida vs. No. 15 UC Santa Barbara on Thursday in Tampa
