Printable NCAA Bracket 2012: Elite Eight Now Half-Filled

The 2012 NCAA Tournament has just 11 games remaining, and four Sweet 16 contests on Thursday night filled out half of the Elite Eight.

Our updated printable 2012 NCAA Tournament bracket (PDF) reflects those changes: Syracuse and Ohio State have moved on in the East, leaving Wisconsin and Cincinnati behind, and Louisville and Florida advanced in the West, leaving Michigan State and Marquette with neat black lines struck through their names.

Those two Elite Eight games will take place on Saturday. On Friday, we get four Sweet 16 contests, with North Carolina's likely attempt to play without point guard Kendall Marshall and Kentucky's rematch with the Indiana team that gave the Wildcats their only regular-season loss of the year headlining.

After a day and a half of the favorites ruling the NCAA Tournament, we finally had a big upset.

Printable NCAA Bracket 2012, Updated With BYU, Western Kentucky Wins

The 2012 NCAA Tournament bracket officially started on Tuesday night with a pair of games in the "First Four" division of the bracket featuring wins by the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers and BYU Cougars as they eliminated the Mississippi Valley State Delta Devils and Iona Gaels, respectively.

Here's the 2012 NCAA Tournament printable bracket, updated through March 13.

That bracket will be updated once again on Thursday morning, better known as the best day in college basketball, since there are two more play-in games on Wednesday night: the Lamar Cardinals will play the Vermont Catamounts followed by the California Golden Bears matching up with the South Florida Bulls.

Southern Conference Championship 2012: Davidson Beats Western Carolina In Double-OT

The Davidson Wildcats are headed back to the NCAA Tournament after winning the Southern Conference Championship with a double-overtime victory against the Western Carolina Catamounts, 93-91.

Davidson led 72-60 with five minutes left in regulation, but Western Carolina closed that gap with a furious rally, slowing down the game by getting to the free-throw line. With 13 seconds left in regulation, Western Carolina still trailed by three until Keaton Cole was fouled on a three-point attempt. He missed that shot but converted all three tries from the stripe. After each team traded turnovers in the final seconds, the game headed to overtime.

Free throws were once again the story in the first overtime period, with Western Carolina scoring six of its eight points from the line. Each team traded three-pointers to open the second overtime period, with Chris Czerapowicz hitting his second long-ball since the end of regulation for Davidson and James Sinclair responding for Western Carolina.

Davidson took the lead for good, though, on Clint Mann's dunk with 1:07 left. Neither team would score the rest of the way, with Cole missing a potential game-winner in the final seconds from several feet beyond the three-point line:

De'Mon Brooks and J.P. Kuhlman each scored 19 points with eight rebounds for the Wildcats, with Jake Cohen scoring 17 with seven boards and Nik Cochran adding 16 and six.

The Catamounts had four starters with at least 18 points: Cole finished with 21 points, Harouna Mutombo and Tawaski King each scored 20 and Trey Sumler added 18. Mutombo, playing in front of his uncle, ex-NBA player Dikembe Mutombo, added seven rebounds, four assists and three steals, while King had 10 rebounds.

With the win, Davidson returns to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since making three straight trips from 2006 to 2008. They certainly hope this year's trip will be as memorable as their most recent one, when Stephen Curry led the Wildcats all the way to the Elite Eight before losing a heartbreaker to Kansas, 59-57.

WCC Tournament 2012, Saint Mary's Vs. Gonzaga: Gaels Prevail, 78-74, In Overtime Thriller

Saint Mary's got exactly what it was looking for with a 78-74 win over Gonzaga in the 2012 West Coast Conference Tournament final on Monday night. It just took overtime for the Gaels to take the latest round in one of college basketball's best rivalries and claim an automatic NCAA Tournament berth.

Saint Mary's was led by Matthew Dellavedova, who had 22 points and four assists, leading the Gaels in both categories. And despite missing a game-winning runner as time expired in regulation, he salted away the game for the Gaels, hitting two clinching free throws in overtime.

Rob Jones (18 points), Jorden Page (16 points), and Brad Waldow (13 points) joined Dellavedova in double figures for Saint Mary's.

Gonzaga rallied from a 68-63 deficit in the final 30 seconds of the second half to force overtime thanks to Elias Harris' big three-pointer.

But Harris, who had 22 points and 13 rebounds for the Zags, didn't even attempt a shot in overtime, as the Bulldogs led for just 49 seconds of the extra period. Robert Sacre added 17 points for Gonzaga in the losing effort.
