Santa Claus, I mean UConn, headed to Norfolk

Is that the Constant Center folks we hear tap dancing on the tables? No, ODU did not miraculously make it to the NCAA tournament, but it's the next best thing. No. 1 No. 1 seed UConn and its boatload of fans are Norfolk bound for a first-round date with Southern on Sunday. And waiting in the wings, either No. 9 James Madison or No. 8 Temple. (Kenny Brooks said in an earlier Twitter he wanted to play in Norfolk.)

Virginia, a 5 seed, has Green Bay in the first round, but a win means the Cavs would likely go against Iowa State on its home floor. The Cyclones meet Lehigh in the first round.

And lucky Liberty. Even if the 13th-ranked Lady Flames don't beat Kentucky, at least they get to enjoy the beautiful scenery in Berkeley.

No surprises for MEAC champ Hampton. The 15th-seeded Lady Pirates get second-seed Duke in Durham. By the way, major props to Hampton's administration for wasting no time in rewarding coach David Six by removing his interim tag and inking him to a three-year deal.

Check out the full 64-team bracket and stay tuned. We'll have WNIT pairings and WBI info later Monday night.
