Missouri Valley Tournament 2012: Bracket And Schedule For Day 4's Final

Wichita State's shocking loss in the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament semifinals to Illinois State on Saturday opens the door for Creighton to win the conference's automatic bid to the 2012 NCAA Tournament with a win in the MVC Tournament final on Sunday. And teams on the NCAA Tournament bubble will be hoping the Bluejays close the door on the Redbirds' chances.

That's because while Creighton is likely going to be dancing no matter what the Bluejays do on Sunday, there is no chance that Illinois State makes it to the third weekend in March without a win in the MVC Tournament final. If Creighton, which thumped Evansville 99-71 in its semifinal, falls to the Redbirds, Illinois State will likely become the first "bid thief" of 2012.

Here is the schedule for Sunday. The full Missouri Valley Conference Tournament bracket can be found here.

Schedule

No. 2 Creighton vs. No. 4 Illinois State - 1:05 p.m. ET, CBS Sports
