The VCU Rams are hoping to cement themselves as this year's Cinderella when they play the Indiana Hoosiers on Saturday night.
Saturday afternoon's games at the 2012 NCAA Tournament will officially be considered the third round of March Madness, but for all intents and purposes, the VCU Rams and Indiana Hoosiers are meeting in the second round for the chance to advance to the Sweet 16.
The Rams represented the only big upset of any team that's playing Saturday, pulling off a victory as a No. 5 seed on Thursday evening, but it'll get progressively tougher against the Hoosiers. There's always a chance they could pull off another upset, though, so it's worth tuning the television to TBS at 7:10 p.m.
VCU shocked the Wichita State Shockers in their opening game, holding on for a 62-59 victory to advance to the second round. Senior wing Bradford Burgess was the team's top player in that game, scoring 16 points to go with five rebounds and four assists in the victory.
The Hoosiers are the favorites as they've won six of their past seven games, including Thursday's 13-point victory over the New Mexico State Aggies. Four of the team's starters scored at least 14 points, but Jordan Hulls led all scorers with 22 points as he connected on four of his six three-point attempts.
