Selection Sunday 2011: Oakland To Play Texas In NCAA Basketball Tournament

The Oakland Golden Grizzlies dominated the Summit League for the second year in a row. They not only won the regular season title, but they also won the Summit League tournament championship. The title gave them an automatic bid to the 2011 NCAA basketball tournament, so there was no uncertainty about their fate going into Selection Sunday.

The Grizzlies were waiting to find out where they would be playing, who their opponent would be and what seed they would receive. Now we know all of the details: Oakland's opponent in the 2011 NCAA basketball tournament will be Texas. The Grizzlies are a No. 13 seed in the NCAA tournament bracket, meaning Texas is a No. 4 seed. The two teams will meet on Friday, March 18. The game will be held in Tulsa, Oklahoma

If Oakland can pull off the upset, it would move on to play either Arizona or Memphis.
