2012 BracketBusters Matchups Announced

Saint Mary's vs. Murray State headlines BracketBusters' televised slate of games.

BracketBusters is ESPN's showcase for mid-major teams that don't get a great deal of national play, and the 2012 edition features three ranked teams who have very good shots at at-large NCAA tournament bids, even if they don't have their best showing in BracketBusters.

The showcase game of the event, without question, is the Murray State - Saint Mary's matchup, the only game in which both teams are ranked. Creighton is the other ranked team in BracketBusters, and they face a tough test in Long Beach State.
