NCAA Bracket 2012: Cincinnati's Path To The Sweet 16

The No. 6 seed Cincinnati Bearcats got to the regional semifinals by knocking off the Texas Longhorns and then the Florida State Seminoles. Each team gave Cinci a scare, just in different ways.

The Bearcats jumped all over No. 11 Texas, holding the Longhorns to just eight points over the game's first 14 minutes and establishing what looked to be an insurmountable lead. But UT chipped away and eventually tied the game at 52. Cincinnati never panicked, though, and was able to hang on for the 65-59 win.

The FSU game was tight throughout. Neither team led by more than five until the final minute. Tied at 50, Cinci went on a 8-2 run and salted away the waning moments for a 62-56 win over the No. 3 seed Seminoles.

The Bearcats had great offensive balance in both contests. Against the Longhorns, each starter scored at least eight; Yancy Gates led the way with 15 points and 10 boards. The FSU game was more of the same: Four players had between nine and 18. Sean Kilpatrick poured in four triples and led all scorers with 18.

2012 NCAA Bracket, Cincinnati Vs. Florida State Final Score: Bearcats Advance To Sweet 16 With Win Over Seminoles

The Cincinnati Bearcats advanced to the Sweet 16 late Sunday night with a 62-56 upset win over No. 3 seed Florida State. Amazingly, it was the first time Cincinnati has ever beaten a higher seeded team in the NCAA Tournament. They had lost their previous four "round of 32" games. It was incredible second-half effort by the Bearcats, which improved Ohio teams to a perfect 8-0 in the tournament and placed four teams from one state in the Sweet 16 for the first time ever.

Mick Cronin's club was led by the guard duo of Dion Dixon and Sean Kilpatrick, who hit all of Cincinnati's three-pointers on the evening. Kilpatrick was four of six from behind the arc and lead all scorers with 18 points. Dixon added 15 points. The Bearcats took a four-point lead in the two minutes, forcing two straight FSU turnovers and capitalizing on the other end with buckets. A huge steal by Dixon led to an emphatic dunk that gave the Bearcats a lead they would not relinquish. Video of the steal and go-ahead dunk below:

One of the four Ohio teams will have to go out in the next round, as the Bearcats now face Ohio State on Thursday in Boston.

NCAA Tournament 2012, Cincinnati Vs. Florida State Score Update: Seminoles Ahead 26-25 At Half

With a trip to the Sweet 16 on the line, the Florida State Seminoles lead the Cincinnati Bearcats 26-25 at the half in a sloppy third round game in the East region.

Both teams struggled to find an offensive rhythm in the opening 20 minutes, and combined for 19 turnovers. Missed shots were also a common occurrence, as the Seminoles shot just 34.6% compared to the Bearcats' 28.6%.

Florida State guard Michael Snaer leads the way in the scoring column with nine points, and is 3-of-6 shooting from three-point range. Cincinnati guards Cashmere Wright and Jaquon Parker are a combined 0-for-9 from the field, while senior leading scorer Dion Dixon is just 3-for-10.

Cincinnati big man Yancy Gates produced only two points in the first half, missing four of his five field goal attempts. Gates will be essential for the Bearcats to handle FSU's length on the interior going forward.

NCAA Tournament 2012, Cincinnati Vs. Florida State: TV Schedule, Game Time And More

On Sunday night, the No. 3 seeded Florida State Seminoles will take on the No. 6 Cincinnati Bearcats for the right to advance to the Sweet Sixteen next weekend. The winner will play No. 2 Ohio State, who defeated No. 7 Gonzaga on Saturday afternoon.

After taking the ACC Tournament, the No. 3 Seminoles had to stave off a furious effort by the No. 14 St. Bonaventure Bonnies on Friday in order to get to Sunday. A win vs. the Bearcats would give the 'noles their second straight Sweet 16 appearance and fifth all-time.

The No. 6 Bearcats had a little bit more comfortable win in their first tournament game, although No. 11 Texas Longhorns made a late rally to make things interesting. A trip to the Sweet 16 would be their 11th, but they haven't been since 2001.

Here's everything you need to know about Sunday night's game:

Time: Sunday March 18, 9:40 p.m. ET

Location: Bridgestone Arena, Nashville, TN

TV: TBS

Announcers: Ian Eagle and Jim Spanarkel with Lewis Johnson reporting

March Madness 2012, Florida State Vs. St. Bonaventure: Seminoles Win 66-63, Will Face Cincinnati In Round 3

On Friday, the Round of 64 continued with plenty of action. One of the most surprising matchups of the day pitted the No. 3 seed Florida St. Seminoles against the No. 14 seed St. Bonaventure Bonnies. Fans of the Cincinnati Bearcats were watching this game intently, as UC will play the winner in the next round. Through nearly the entire game, it appeared as though St. Bonaventure was crafting their very own Cinderella story. It was not to be, however, as FSU took a late lead and hung on to advance with the 66-63 win.

The Bonnies led by as many as 10 points throughout the game, but a six-minute scoring drought by St. Bonaventure helped allow the Seminoles to close the gap. Florida State finally managed to tie up the game for the first time with seven minutes left in regulation. Florida State sunk a three-pointer with five minutes remaining to take their very first lead of the game. The two teams fought tooth and nail over the last minutes, with both exchanging clutch three-pointers, but Florida State managed to hang on for the win.

Florida State forward Bernard James led all players in the game with 19 points and 10 rebounds.

March Madness Bracket 2012, Cincinnati Vs. Texas Final Score: Bearcats Advance With 65-59 Win

Friday marks the second day of games in the Round of 64. The 2012 NCAA Tournament is not lacking in drama, by any stretch of the imagination. In one of Friday's afternoon games, the No. 6 seed Cincinnati Bearcats took on the No. 11 seed Texas Longhorns. The Bearcats were out to prove that their appearance and high seeding in the tournament was no mere fluke, while Texas was hoping to pull off the upset and advance to the Round of 32. In the end, Cincinnati was able to pick up the 65-59 win and advance.

The game remained close right down to the final minutes, as Texas pulled even, 52-52 with just over three minutes left in regulation. The Bearcats quickly bounced back and put up back-to-back buckets in the next 90 seconds to pull ahead again, 56-52. UC maintained their four-point lead into the final seconds, as Texas was forced to resort to the foul game. It didn't pay off to the Longhorns and they took the elimination loss.

Cincinati forward Yancy Gates had a big game, picking up a double-double with 15 points and 10 rebounds.

Cincinnati Vs. Texas Score: Bearcats Jump Up By 14 At Half After Horns Struggle Mightily On Offense

The Cincinnati Bearcats lead the Texas Longhorns 31-17 after one half in Nashville. The Longhorns had a season low for points in the first half, and had just two points on the board through the first 12 and a half minutes of the game. Texas picked it up slightly in the second half, and the Bearcats did not really take full advantage of the woeful offensive start by the Horns.

Live In-Game Box Score Updates

Sean Kilpatrick and Yancy Gates lead the Bearcats on the offensive end, scoring eight points each. Kilpatrick finally got going from outside and drilled a corner three-pointer late in the second half to add to the double digit lead. Gates has done his work down low where you would expect, hitting four of eight shots while also grabbing six boards against the Longhorn front line.

But the Bearcats hit just two of ten from behind the arc, and are letting Texas hang around so far. They’re used to playing games in the 60s in the Big East so they will have to continue their defensive effort to move on in Nashville.

2012 NCAA Tournament Predictions: President Barack Obama Picks Ohio State To Reach Final Four

One thing that has become a March Madness tradition is the First Bracket, as ESPN's Andy Katz visits with Barack Obama to fill out the President's college hoops picks. In addition to filling out a bracket, Obama also took in some live action on Tuesday when he visited Dayton for the First Four game between Western Kentucky and Mississippi Valley State.

On Wednesday, he filled out his bracket again with Katz, and Buckeye fans will be pleased to know he has OSU winning the East region. Unfortunately for Ohio State fans, that's as far as he has Thad Matta's club advancing, with the Bucks losing to North Carolina in the national semifinal. He has the Heels winning at all, defeating Kentucky in the title game. That's the second time in his term that he's picked Roy Williams and UNC to cut down the nets.

More: Check out President Obama's complete bracket.

Perhaps looking to win some votes in Southwest Ohio, the President has both the Cincinnati Bearcats and Xavier Musketeers winning their first round games. The President did not predict a Bobcat upset, however, with OU dropping their opening round matchup to Michigan.

2012 NCAA Tournament Schedule: Cincinnati Vs. Texas Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The Cincinnati Bearcats and the Texas Longhorns will meet in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Friday afternoon in Nashville Tennessee. The Bearcats enter the game as the 6th-seeded team in the East region, while Texas is the No. 11 seed.

Game date/time: Friday March 16th, 12:15 p.m. ET

Location: Bridgestone Arena, Nashville Tennessee

TV: CBS

Announcer Team: Ian Eagle/Jim Spanarkel//Lewis Johnson

Cincinnati and Texas will be the first game of the day on Friday with the winner advancing to Sunday's third round game against either Florida State or St. Bonaventure.

The Bearcats are coming off of a Big East championship game appearance having knocked off top seeded Syracuse in a surprise upset this past weekend. The Longhorns narrowly made the field as the sixth Big 12 Conference representative after spending the majority of the season classified as a bubble team. A win over Iowa State in the Big 12 Tournament likely clinched the Longhorns spot.

NCAA 2012 Tournament Bracket: Cincinnati Bearcats

Cincinnati heads into the NCAA Tournament as the No. 6 seeded team in the East region. The Bearcats will face 11th seeded Texas in the first game of the tournament and if they win they'll take on the winner of Florida State and St. Bonaventure.

The East region is full of talented teams including the top seed Syracuse. Syracuse would be a familiar foe for the Bearcats as both teams are in the Big East and the Bearcats are coming off an upset win over the Orange in the Big East semifinals.

The Big 10 co-champion sits as the 2nd seeded team in the East region, while another fellow Big East representative, West Virginia, sits as the 10th seeded team. SEC Tournament champion Vanderbilt, Wisconsin and perennial mid major power Gonzaga are all also seeded in the East region.

Here's the full East Region bracket for the 2012 NCAA Tournament:

No. 1 Syracuse
No. 16 UNC Asheville

No. 8 Kansas State
No. 9 Southern Miss

No. 5 Vanderbilt
No. 12 Harvard

No. 4 Wisconsin

NCAA Tournament Bracket 2012: Cincinnati Bearcats Could Face Florida State, St. Bonaventure In Third Round

After a successful regular season, the Cincinnati Bearcats have landed the No. 6 seed in the East region for this year's NCAA Tournament, as the selection committee announced on Sunday. Cincinnati is one of eight teams from the Big East to get a bid, and the Bearcats were an at large selection coming off a run to the Big East tournament finals.

The East region should pose numerous challenges for a talented Cincinnati team. In the first game of the tournament, the Bearcats will be facing 11th-seeded Texas, with the winner moving on to face No. 3 seeded Florida State or No. 14 seeded St. Bonaventure in the next round.

If the Bearcats have some success early in the tournament, they could eventually face off against No. 2 Ohio State or Big East regular season champ Syracuse.

Cincinnati appeared in the tournament a year ago where they would fall in the 3rd round fellow Big East school and the ultimate National Champion, the Connecticut Huskies.

NCAA Bracket 2012: Cincinnati To Play Texas In First Round

After landing the No. 6 seed in the 2012 NCAA Tournament, the Cincinnati Bearcats will be playing 11th-seeded Texas to kick things off in the first round. The Bearcats received an at-large bid from the tournament's selection committee after a 24-10 record through the regular season and Big East tournament.

The Bearcats spent a good deal of time flirting with the bubble early on during Big East play. The Bearcats struggled at times out of the gate and lost three in a row in late January. Fortunately the Bearcats started to put together a convincing stretch run that ultimately ended with a loss in the Big East tournament. That run included a win over Syracuse in the semifinals and that was more than enough to push the Bearcats all the way up to a No. 6 seed.

Cincinnati now begins preparation for a game against the final team to get in from the Big 12 conference, Texas. Texas received an at large bid out of the Big 12 and was likely one of the final teams selected by the committee. While the Longhorns played in a tough conference and challenged some very strong opponents, they were never able to get over the hump and get a signature win against the likes of Kansas, Missouri or Baylor.

Texas is led by J'Covan Brown and they head into the tournament coming of their third loss of the season to the Missouri Tigers in the Big 12 tournament. A win over Iowa State in the Big 12 quarterfinals likely clinched the spot for Rick Barnes and the Longhorns.
