The NCAA tournament selection committee gave Philadelphia college basketball fans a treat when this year's NCAA tournament bracket was unveiled. Villanova and Saint Joseph's could face each other in the Round of 32 in Buffalo, with the winner getting a trip to New York's Madison Square Garden for the Sweet 16. 

Of course, they'll have to win their second-round games to get their first. The Wildcats are the East Region's No. 2 seed, and will face No. 15 seed Wisconsin-Milwaukee. The Hawks are the No. 10 seed, and drew a sensational matchup against No. 7 seed Connecticut. Both games will take place Thursday, with the Round of 32 games to take place Saturday.

Delaware will also play Thursday, but they won't have as glamorous a stage. The Blue Hens are the No. 13 seed in the East Region, and will travel across the country to Spokane, Wash., to play No. 4 seed Michigan State.
