NCAA Tournament 2012, Michigan State Vs. Saint Louis: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

After taking care of Long Island on Friday night, 89-67, the West Region's No. 1 seeded Michigan State Spartans are in the Round of 32 against No. 9 Saint Louis on Sunday. Saint Louis also won on Friday, "upsetting" No. 8 Memphis, 61-54, to improve to 26-7 on the season.

If Michigan State wins in Columbus on Sunday, they would head to Phoenix for the Sweet 16 to play the winner of the No. 4 Louisville-No. 5 New Mexico game. If the Spartans advance, it would be their 10th Sweet 16 appearance since Tom izzo took over the head coaching job in 1995.

Saint Louis, on the other hand, hasn't been to the Sweet 16 since 1957 and it would be only their third appearance in their program's history. The game on Sunday vs. the Spartans marks just the sixth time they've made it to the Round of 32, the last coming in 1998 when they lost to the eventual champion Kentucky.

Here's everything you need to know for the game:

Game Time: ~ 2:45 p.m. ET (after the conclusion of the Georgetown-North Carolina State game)
