March Madness 2011 Bracket: Kentucky Vs. Princeton Headlines SEC NCAA Tournament Matchups

Kentucky fresh off its SEC Tournament championship earns a No. 4 seed in the NCAA Tournament. They will be taking on No. 13 seeded Princeton in the first round of the East regional. Kentucky would appear to be on a potential collision course with No. 1 overall seed Ohio State.

Kentucky's opponent in the SEC Tournament championship game the Florida Gators earn a No. 2 seed in the Southeast region. The Gators will take on the No. 15 seeded UC Santa Barbara Gauchos. The Gauchos finished fourth in the Big West during the regular season before winning the conference tournament and the automatic bid.

Vanderbilt crashes the party as a No. 5 seed in the Southwest region. They will take on Atlantic 10 Tournament Champion Richmond Spiders. The Spiders come into the tournament hot having won their last seven games in a row.

Tennessee makes the tournament field as a No. 9 seed and will be taking on Michigan in the first round as part of the West region. Tennessee enjoyed an up and down season while Michigan was a surprise finishing at 20-13 before losing to overall No. 1 seed Ohio State in the Big 10 tournament.

Georgia is the fifth SEC team to make the tournament field doing so as a No. 10 seed in the East region. They will take on Pac-10 tournament champ Washington on Friday. Curiously Alabama who won the SEC's regular season western division and beat Georgia twice in the last week of the season isn't a part of the tournament field. Alabama defeated the Bulldogs 65-59 in overtime in the second round of the SEC Tournament. The Crimson Tide then lost 72-58 to eventual Tournament champ Kentucky in the semifinals.
