NC State Is In The 2012 NCAA Tournament; No. 11-Seed Pack Set To Play San Diego St.

Holy fucking shit, why did CBS have to do it like that? Granted, the waiting made it all the more awesome, but as it turned out, we actually had no reason to be sweating. NC State is not playing in Dayton, which means that State wasn't even one of the last four at-large teams to receive a bid, in the tournament committee's estimation. Yeah, we were solidly in the whole time.

NC State is a No. 11 seed in the Midwest Region (also UNC's region), and State will play No. 6 seed San Diego State out of the Mountain West in the opening round. There's a potential second round matchup with Georgetown there, but it's probably best not to get too far ahead of ourselves just yet. I like this draw though.

Here's a look at the bottom half of the Midwest bracket:
