Big Ten Bracketology 2011: Joe Lunardi's Sunday Morning Update

Joe Lunardi of ESPN.com has put together his bracket update for this Selection Sunday morning, and he has also placed seven Big Ten teams into the field for the 2011 NCAA Basketball Tournament. Let's see how his brackets stack up for the teams of the Big Ten.

Ohio State Buckeyes - #1 seed in the East bracket
Purdue Boilermakers - #4 seed in the West bracket
Wisconsin Badgers - #4 seed in the Southeast bracket
Illinois Fighting Illini - #11 seed in the East bracket
Michigan Wolverines - #11 seed in the West bracket
Michigan State Spartans - #11 seed in the Southeast bracket
Penn State Nittany Lions - #12 seed in the Southwest bracket

Once again, all seven Big Ten representatives are firmly into the NCAA tournament, according to Lunardi, with none of them being stuck in any of the "First Four" games that will be done for play-in purposes.

The final brackets will be announced at 5:00 PM Central time, and you can be sure we'll have all of the excitement right here for you at SB Nation Minnesota.
