RADNOR, Pa. (CBS) - The NCAA unveiled its 61-team bracket for the 2011 Division III Men’s Basketball Tournament, and three local squads have gotten their tickets punched.

Cabrini, champions of the Colonial States Athletic Conference, will host New Jersey City in its first-round game.  The Cavaliers are 22-5 on the season.

The team Cabrini beat for the CSAC title, Gwynedd-Mercy, is also in the field.  The Griffins will take on Buffalo State on Friday night on a neutral court — at Ramapo College.  Gwynedd-Mercy is 21-6 for head coach John Baron.

Delaware Valley College was dealt a difficult hand in its NCAA Tournament debut. The Aggies, who won the Freedom Conference, will visit perennial national power Virginia Wesleyan in the first round.
