Thursday is the first real day of the 2012 NCAA Tournament, featuring a full slate of games. That includes Loyola (MD), a local team that has a pretty serious uphill battle on Thursday when they face the No. 2 seed in the bracket Ohio State.
The game will be played in Pittsburgh, so in addition to the talent advantage that the Buckeyes have, they will also have a pretty significant home court advantage. The game starts late, so make sure you don't tucker yourself with basketball all day before the game even starts. It is scheduled to get underway at 9:50 pm tonight and can be found on TNT.
