NCAA Tournament 2012, Cal Vs. USF: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

Tuesday's First Four game between at-large teams will set the winner up to be a massive underdog, but the winner of Wednesday's first four game between the California Golden Bears and South Florida Bulls might have some potential backers in the NCAA Tournament. Though neither team finished particularly strong in the regular season or their conference tournaments, both teams have plenty of talent and some quality wins under their belt.

South Florida incredibly got to the tournament without a single player averaging double-digit points per game. They're 328th in the country in points per game. California isn't as strong defensively as USF, but score at a much higher clip. They're led by Pac-12 Player of the Year Jorge Gutierrez and leading scorer Allen Crabbe.

Game Date/Time: Wednesday, March 14, 9:00 p.m. ET

Venue: Greensboro Coliseum, Greensboro, North Carolina

TV: truTV

Announcers: Ian Eagle, Jim Spanarkel and Lewis Johnson
