Although that run to the NCAA title was pretty unexpected for UConn, a similar run in the 2012 NCAA Tournament would be even more unlikely. The Huskies will start their title defense with the UConn-Iowa State game
Thursday. UConn and Iowa State will play their second-round game in Louisville, beginning at 9:20 p.m. Eastern. TBS will nationally televise the Connecticut-Iowa State game from the South Region as part of the overall CBS television package.
CBS will televise the Texas-Cincinnati game
from Nashville beginning at 12:15 p.m. Eastern Friday. It will be the first game of that day in the new CBS television package, where every game is televised nationally on one of four networks. Cincinnati is a #6 seed, while the Longhorns are seeded 11th in the East Region. The Texas-Cincinnati winner will play the Florida State-St. Bonaventure winner in Sunday’s third round in Nashville.
TNT will nationally televise Friday’s second round NCAA Tournament Virginia-Florida
game from Omaha. The 10th-seeded Cavaliers and seventh-seeded Gators will play at 2:10 p.m. Eastern, with the winner likely facing the West Region’s #2 seed, Missouri, on Sunday in Omaha.

PAC 12, BIG 10, BIG 12, and MWC 2012 Conference Picks
- For some of the nation’s biggest conferences in the western region of the United States, it’s been a rough season. The newly expanded Pacific 12 Conference is having an especially poor season, and only one or two Pac-12 teams could end up receiving NCAA bids after the conference tournaments this weekend. Powerhouse programs like UCLA and Texas are in jeopardy regarding the NCAA Tournament. It’s important for many leagues that teams on the NCAA bubble find a way to put together a strong weekend to make sure they continue playing in next week’s NCAAs, even if they don’t win their league tournaments.
ACC, Big East & SEC 2012 Conference Tournaments
- Several of this weekend’s conference tournaments are going to play a key role in determining just how many teams are able to clinch NCAA Tournament at large bids. Conferences in the eastern region of the United States are in line to claim a large number of at large bids, but a few strong showings in the league tournaments may be required to solidify further large bids.
The West Coast Conference Tournament
features several byes for the higher seeded teams, so Saint Mary’s and Gonzaga will not have to play until the semifinal round. The WCC Tournament begins Feb. 29, with the championship game set for March 5. All games will be played in Las Vegas at the Orleans Arena.
The preliminary round games on Feb. 29 and March 1 will be televised on BYU TV. ESPNU will televise the league tournament quarterfinal games March 2 at 9 and 11 p.m. Eastern. BYU and Loyola Marymount have received byes into the quarterfinals.
2011 Conference Tournaments previews with march madness picks & predictions
ACC - Duke and North Carolina dominated the ACC this season, with the Tar Heels edging Duke for the ACC regular-season championship after a win in the season’s final game. Duke and North Carolina even split their regular-season meetings this season. So it would be no surprise to see Duke and North Carolina play for a third time in the ACC Tournament championship game this weekend.
- With the Big East Conference poised to potentially place a record 11 teams in next week’s NCAA Tournament, fans who keep a close eye on this week’s Big East Tournament will have a chance to preview almost 16% of the NCAA Tournament field.
Big 12 - The Big 12 Conference is undergoing a significant change after this season, but the final 12-team Big 12 Tournament has a familiar favorite – Kansas.
Nebraska and Colorado will be playing in their final Big 12 Tournament this week, and both teams still have hopes of earning NCAA Tournament at-large berths with strong performances at the Big 12 Tournament in Kansas City, Mo. However, if Nebraska and Colorado cannot make deep runs in the Big 12 Tournament, fans potentially will be treated to two bitter rivalries in the semifinals – Kansas vs. Kansas State and Texas vs. Texas A&M.
- With the conference’s recent struggles in basketball, the final Pac 10 Tournament many not have the star power of the Big East or Big Ten Tournaments. Still, with a handful of teams either on the NCAA Tournament bubble or trying to improve their NCAA seedings, the final Pac 10 Tournament should have plenty of excitement at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
The final Pac 10 Tournament begins with Wednesday’s first round. Six teams receive byes into the quarterfinals on Thursday. Friday’s semifinals will be televised on FSN, while Saturday’s Pac 10 Tournament Championship Game will be televised on CBS.
Big 10 - March 10-13 – Big Ten Tournament – Big Ten Network, ESPN2, ESPN, and CBS
The Big Ten Conference’s final 11-team Big Ten Tournament this week carries a team – Ohio State – that many experts are mentioning as the potential favorite to win the national championship. Still, if history is any indication, the Big Ten Tournament should be a wide-open affair.
Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis will host the Big Ten Tournament. First-round games will begin Thursday. Five teams receive byes into Friday’s quarterfinals. CBS will televise both Saturday’s semifinals and Sunday’s Big Ten Championship Game.
