INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — The 2011 NCAA Division II Men’s Basketball Championship Committee announced the brackets for the Southeast Regional tonight, and the Lincoln Memorial University men’s basketball team will make their NCAA Tournament debut as a two-seed. They will face seven-seed and South Atlantic Conference foe Anderson University next weekend.
Augusta State is the top seed and will host the regional. They will face eighth-seed UNC-Pembroke in a re-match of today’s Peach Belt Conference Tournament Championship, which ASU won.
LMU earned the South Atlantic Conference’s automatic bid with the 68-58 win over Wingate earlier today. It will be the Railsplitters’ first-ever trip to the NCAA Tournament. Anderson is one of only two teams to defeat the Railsplitters this season.
The third seed was Georgia Southwestern, who will face sixth-seeded Montevallo. Queens University of Charlotte (4th seed) and Limestone (5th) round out the regional field.
