2011 NCAA Tournament Bracket: East Region Primer For Washington Fans

The Washington Huskies heard their name announced early during the Selection Sunday and were placed in the East region of the 2011 NCAA Tournament bracket. Washington earned the No. 7 seed in the tournament and will head to Charlotte, North Carolina for the first round. A date with the Georgia Bulldogs awaits as the Huskies begin the race to the Final Four on Friday.

With the release of the NCAA bracket comes the early predictions as fans around the country begin to fill out their own brackets in an effort to pick winners in every game — from the play-ins to the NCAA Championship. It’s a daunting task. Luckily, Washington fans and at-home bracket experts can get a better idea of how the East region will shake out over at SB Nation’s East region primer. You can find the Washington Huskies capsule, done by SB Nation Seattle’s Nate Parham, here. Get to know the enemy by checking out the Georgia capsule, as well.

All 16 East region team previews, including North Carolina, the likely second round opponent of the Huskies or Bulldogs, can be found here. Check them out, browse through the previews and begin filling out your brackets in anticipation of March Madness, the most wonderful time of the year.
