West Region: Temple Owls (7) vs. Penn State Nittany Lions (10) Thurs. March 17, 2011 2:10 p.m. EST

One of the matchups to look for the in REAL first round of the 2011 NCAA Tournament is the Temple Owls (7) going up against the Penn State Nittany Lions (10). Even though both of these college basketball programs haven’t exactly been amongst the elite in the country during their existence, they have been able to get to the tourney consistently and could be two teams to watch in the West Region.

As arguably one of the most competitive regions in the 2011 NCAA Tournament, every team in the West Region will have their work cut out for them as they will have to compete with great teams like the UConn Huskies (3), Duke Blue Devils (1), San Diego State Aztecs (2) and Texas Longhorns (4). The Blue Devils are obviously the team to beat in the West, but the Huskies, Aztecs and Longhorns will also be very tough to beat.

With that being said, the Owls and Nittany Lions will have their work cut out for them in the later rounds, but in the meantime they will be looking to get to the next round.

As of right now, the Temple Owls (7) have been in the advantage with a -2.5 point spread. Even though Penn State (10) could pull off the upset, I believe Temple will be the team to advance to the next round and most likely face the San Diego State Aztecs (2).
