SECTIONAL POST 2012 NCAA Bracket: Texas Lands In East Region, Could Face Florida State

After a successful regular season, the Texas Longhorns have landed the 11th seed in the East region for this year's NCAA Tournament, as the selection committee announced on Sunday. One of just five teams from the Big 12 to get a bid, the Longhorns got an at-large invitation after failing to win the conference tournament.

The East region should pose numerous challenges for a talented Texas team. In the first round of the tournament, the Longhorns will be facing 6th-seeded Cincinnati, with the winner moving on to face No. 3 seeded Florida State in the second round should the Seminoles survive against St. Bonaventure.

If the Longhorns have some success early in the tournament, they could eventually face the likes of Ohio State, or Syracuse, the region's top-two seeds, in later rounds.
