The teams have been picked and the “first four” games have already started. Yes, just like the NFL free agency period, March Madness 2012 has snuck up on us.
To help you out with your own “bracketology” we offer you the printable 2012 NCAA men’s basketball tournament bracket below. The first four games are still listed as both teams, but we’ll get you an update as soon as they are through. The first game tips off at 6:30pm EST on Tuesday the 13th as the first two 16 seeds, the Mississippi Valley State Delta Devils and the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers, go to battle. The second Tuesday game is at 9:00 and features the 14 seeds Iona and BYU… much shorter names.
On Wednesday, it’s Vermont and Lamar in the early game and South Florida and California later in the evening. The 6:30 game features the 16 seeds and the 9:00 are the two 12’s in the midwest.
The real action starts on Thursday at 12:15pm EST and will run almost continuously until Sunday night. Check back in at the Zoo for updated printable brackets.
