2011 NCAA Tournament Bracket
March 12, 2012 by staff
2011 NCAA Tournament Bracket, The Connecticut Huskies entered the 2011-12 NCAA basketball season with very lofty expectations. UConn was projected before the season began to emerge as the co-Big East champions along with the Syracuse Orange. Certainly as defending NCAA Champions, the bar was set quite high for the team from the get-go.
The Huskies got their season started on the right foot with a November win over the highly-ranked Florida St. Seminoles and kept the wins rolling all the way through December. Things then hit the skids in January as conference play opened, with UConn losing five of seven games to start 2012. Things didn’t improve much in February, as the Huskies lost seven of nine. The team was 20-13 at the end of the regular season, but that included going 8-10 in the Big East.
The Huskies entered the 2012 Big East Tournament as the No. 9 seed. They toppled No. 16 seed DePaul in the opening round, 81-67. They then bested the No. 8 West Virginia Mountaineers in overtime, 71-67. They ran up against the No. 1 seed Syracuse in the quarterfinals and finally the Huskies saw their season come to an end with a close 58-55 win.
