It's Tournament Time!

RSS
With the 2011 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament underway and games set to start at Quicken Loans Arena on Friday, March 19th at 2:10 p.m., cavs.com got a little help from the Wine and Gold in filling out a tournament bracket. Forward Christian Eyenga, center Ryan Hollins (UCLA Bruins), forward Alonzo Gee (Alabama Crimson Tide), forward Samardo Samuels (Louisville Cardinals) and Assistant Coach Chris Jent (Ohio State Buckeyes) have made their picks for the opening three rounds of the tournament. Take a look and compare your bracket with ours and be sure to check back each week until the tournament champion cuts down the nets in Houston on April 4th. Good luck.
