March Madness Schedule 2012: The Chalk Battles It Out For The Elite 8

The Sweet Sixteen of the 2012 NCAA Tournament tips off Thursday evening with some premier match ups as teams try to make their way to the Elite Eight. The games tip off at 7:15 in Boston. The final game will tip off around 10:17 p.m.

The four games going on Thursday night will decide the two teams from the East Region as No. 4 seed Wisconsin will look to upset No. 1 seeded Syracuse. The late game for the East Region will have No. 6 seed Cincinnati will take on No. 2 Ohio State, with the two winners taking each other on in the Elite Eight.
