2012 NCAA Tournament Bracket: Ohio Bobcats

The Ohio Bobcats head to the NCAA tournament on the heels of an exciting Mid-American Conference Tournament Championship. Despite a 3rd place regular season finish in the MAC, Ohio would need to win the league tournament as the MAC was expected to be a one bid league for the NCAA tournament.

Having accomplished that, the Bobcats earned a No. 13 seed in the NCAA tournament where they will face 4th seeded Michigan. A third round matchup with either Temple, California or South Florida would await should the Bobcats pull off an upset win.

North Carolina, Kansas and Georgetown are the top three seeds in the Ohio bracket. Other Midwest regional teams include San Diego State, Crieghton and St. Mary's.

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

No. 1 North Carolina
No. 16 Lamar / Vermont (First Four)

No. 8 Creighton
No. 9 Alabama

No. 5 Temple
No. 12 California / South Florida (First Four)
