Jay Bilas' Bracket For 2011 NCAA Tournament Has Kansas Winning It All

ESPN's Jay Bilas' bracket for the 2011 NCAA Tournament has the Kansas Jayhawks winning the title, a pick that differs from colleague Dick Vitale, who predicted Ohio State would cut down the nets. Bilas believes the Jayhawks are too deep to be overcome by anyone in the tournament.

The Jayhawks received a No. 1 seed in the Southwest Region after winning the Big 12 title, and are considered the second-best team in the nation behind Ohio State.

Bilas has three Big East schools joining the Jayhawks in his Final Four. He predicts that Syracuse, Connecticut and Pittsburgh will all reach Houston, with the Jayhawks defeating Kemba Walker and the Huskies in the National Championship game. 

In the Elite 8, Bilas has No. 3 seed Syracuse upsetting No. 1 seed Ohio State, No. 3 seed Connecticut upsetting No. 1 seed Duke, No. 1 seed Kansas topping No. 3 seed Purdue and No. 1 seed Pittsburgh defeating No. 2 seed Florida.
