NCAA Tournament 2012, Syracuse Vs. UNC Asheville: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The Syracuse Orange are set to tip off against UNC Asheville on Thursday in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The Orange are coming off a loss to Cincinnati in the Big East Conference Tournament, but will look to move to the next round of the East Region with a win over No. 16 seed UNCA.

The UNC Asheville Bulldogs will try to be the first No. 16-seeded team to ever knock off a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, as they come off mowing right through the Big South Conference Tournament, capping it off with an 80-64 victory over Virginia Military Academy. The Bulldogs lost only twice in conference play this season, but will be facing a much stiffer opponent in Syracuse.

Game Date/Time: Thursday, March 15, 3:10 p.m. ET
