The 2012 NCAA Tournament continues its Round of 64 in Columbus on Friday night. In the first evening matchup, No. 8 seed Memphis Tigers are facing off against the No. 9 seed Saint Louis Billikens. The teams are two of the most evenly-matched in the entire tournament and through the half, they have been playing like it in a close contest, as was expected. At halftime, the score is tied, 23-23.
