2011 NIT Season Tip-Off Bracket Includes Syracuse, Oklahoma State As Top Seeds

The NCAA has released the bracket for the 2011 NIT Season Tip-Off  tournament, featuring Syracuse and Oklahoma State as the tourney's top seeds. The tournament will take place from November 14-23, with the top four seeds hosting early-round games on their respective campuses. The semifinals finals will be played at Madison Square Garden in New York City.  

Syracuse returns a lot of talent from last year's 27-8 squad, including Scoop Jardine and last year's leading scorer, Kris Joseph. The Orange should once again be among the favorites to win the Big East title, if not a national championship.

Oklahoma State finished the 2010-11 season with a loss to Washington State as a 3-seed in the postseason NIT. OSU has had some some success at the Tip-Off before, winning the tournament in 1991 over Georgia Tech. 

Games will be hosted at Stanford and Virginia Tech, to round out the top four seeds. The rest of the field will include George Mason, Oral Roberts, Colorado State, Texas-San Antonio, Manhattan, Brown, Monmouth, Florida International, Fresno State and Arkansas-Pine Bluff.
