2012 Big Ten Tournament Bracket And Schedule For Day Two

The Big Ten is in day two of the conference tournament. Day one saw Illinois, Penn State, Northwestern and Nebraska's elimination from the tournament as four other teams advanced to the next round to face the four top seeded teams.

There are plenty of teams left in the tournament that have their sites set on a spot in the NCAA Tournament, but before they get too terribly excited to play in late-march, there are three more rounds of top-notch Big Ten action left in the conference tournament with a ton of tough competition. Friday's games begin at noon and go through 9 p.m (ET) and two of the four games are being televised on ESPN.

All games take place at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, In.

Here is the bracket and TV schedule for day two of the Big Ten tournament.

Friday, March 9

Game 5: No. 1 Michigan State vs. No. 8 Iowa (Noon, ESPN)

Game 6: No. 4 Wisconsin vs. No. 5 Indiana (2:30 p.m. ESPN)

Game 7: No. 2 Michigan vs. No. 10 Minnesota (6:30 p.m., BTN)

Game 8: No. 3 Ohio State vs. No. 6 Purdue (9 p.m., BTN)

The winner of the Michigan State-Iowa game will face the winner of the Wisconsin-Indiana game for one semifinals matchup while the winner of the Michigan-Minnesota game will play the winner of the Ohio State-Purdue game in the other, and the winner of those two games play in the Big Ten Championship game on Sunday.
