2012 Sweet 16 Printable Bracket And Schedule: Four Big East Teams Play Thursday

Here's the schedule of NCAA Tournament games for Thursday. There are four games, all of which feature Big East teams. Three of those Big East teams are playing Big Ten teams, so even if Pitt, WVU and Penn State aren't still alive (Pitt and Penn State didn't make the tournament to begin with, obviously), their conferences can fight it out by proxy.

No. 4 Wisconsin vs. No. 1 Syracuse, 7:15 p.m., CBS (Boston)
No. 4 Louisville vs. No. 1 Michigan State, 7:47 p.m., TBS (Phoenix)
No. 6 Cincinnati vs. No. 2 Ohio State, 9:45 p.m., CBS (Boston)
No. 7 Florida vs. No. 3 Marquette, 10:17 p.m., TBS (Phoenix)

After Thursday's action, it would be possible for two pairs of Big East teams (Syracuse and Cincinnati in the East Region, Louisville and Marquette in the West) to face off in the Elite Eight.

Xavier vs. Baylor, Ohio vs. North Carolina, Indiana vs. Kentucky, and NC State vs. Kansas will take place on Friday.

A full, printable bracket, updated for the Sweet 16, can be found here.
