While Boston College isn't dancing, the Eagles athletics department will still have a role in this year's NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament as host institution of this year's East Regional.

"We are extremely pleased that the NCAA has decided to return to Boston for college basketball's showcase tournament," Director of Athletics Gene DeFilippo said. "This decision is a tribute to the outstanding cooperation Boston College has received from Mayor Menino's office, the city of Boston, the TD Garden, the Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau and the local business community. We are grateful for their support and excited to have this opportunity once again."

The East Regionals are set for March 22-24 at the Garden. So while BC is home for the postseason, a nice little Boston College logo will likely adorn the Garden's parquet floor. At least we're getting something out of this.

The question is which teams will be playing in the Garden. Here's the East regional bracket:

No. 1 Syracuse Orange (31-2) vs. No. 16 UNC-Asheville Bulldogs (24-9)
No. 8 Kansas St. Wildcats (21-10) vs. No. 9 Southern Miss. Golden Eagles (25-8)

No. 5 Vanderbilt Commodores (24-10) vs. No. 12 Harvard Crimson (26-4)
No. 4 Wisconsin Badgers (24-9) vs. No. 13 Montana Grizzlies (25-6)

No. 6 Cincinnati Bearcats (24-10) vs. No. 11 Texas Longhorns (20-13)
No. 3 Florida St. Seminoles (24-9) vs. No. 14 St. Bonaventure Bonnies (20-11)

No. 7 Gonzaga Bulldogs (25-6) vs. No. 10 West Virginia Mountaineers (19-13)
No. 2 Ohio St. Buckeyes (24-8) vs. No. 15 Loyola, Md. Greyhounds (24-8)

Which four programs do you like to emerge out of the East Regional and into the Sweet 16? Who cuts down the nets at the Garden?
