NIT Tournament 2011 Bracket Update: Alabama, Miami, Charleston All We Have Left

The Southeastern sports fan's rooting interests in the 2011 NIT Tournament: rapidly dwindling. SEC fans, Alabama is still up, and the general ACC fan could root for Miami, I guess, though Georgia Tech fans still have Bobby Cremins' College of Charleston to root for.

After No. 1 Virginia Tech's overtime upset at the hands of Wichita State, which came in Blacksburg despite a heavy free throw advantage in favor of the Hokies, Colorado and Bama are the only No. 1 seeds left.

Both Miami and Alabama will play tonight, along with the Oklahoma State-Washington State game, to decide who makes the quarterfinals. Quarterfinals winners are off to Madison Square Garden, home of the New York Knicks and the illustrious 2011 Big East Tournament, which marked the last time a Big East team won a postseason game as far as I know.
