NCAA Bracket 2012 And Schedule: Final Two Play-In Games Scheduled For Wednesday

For most people the 2012 NCAA Tournament gets underway on Thursday, when half the field starts play. But the Tournament actually started on Tuesday with two play-in games, and there are two more to be played on Wednesday. Both games will be available to watch on tru TV.

The first game starts at 6:40 pm and features two teams playing for the right to play North Carolina on Friday. Lamar and Vermont both have the same amount of out of conference wins, but the Catamounts have two more Conference wins.

The second game is between South Florida and Cal and starts at 9:10 pm. Both of these teams sort of backed into the NCAA tournament, but USF played in the Big East and has one of the toughest defenses in all of College Basketball. They should likely be favored in this one.

Here's a full printable bracket.
