Bracketed brothers: March Madness a family affair

The NCAA tournament selection committee often tucks intriguing coaching matchups and festering feuds inside the brackets.

This year, though, it's all about the strange twists and turns of family.

In one game Friday, brother is pitted against brother - Kris Joseph against Maurice Joseph, when No. 1 Syracuse plays No. 16 Vermont in a West Regional game in Buffalo, N.Y.

Another pair of brothers, Noah and Isaiah Dahlman, are also playing Friday on opposite sides of the country - Noah for underdog Wofford in Jacksonville, Fla., and Isaiah for Michigan State in Spokane, Wash.
