March Madness Bracket 2012: Saint Louis Sent To Columbus

Despite a loss in the Atlantic 10 semifinals, the Saint Louis Billikens are still headed to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in the Rick Majerus era. The Billikens will face quite the challenge in the second round, as they will face the Memphis Tigers in Columbus. Things won't get easier for Saint Louis if they advance, as the winner of Michigan St vs. LIU Brooklyn awaits.

Even with the loss to Xavier in the Atlantic 10 semifinals, Saint Louis enters the NCAA Tournament playing some of their basketball. The Billikens have won nine of their last 11 entering this game. However, the Tigers are also playing some excellent basketball, as they just won the Conference USA Tournament in impressive fashion.

Michigan St. earned the No.1 seed in the Phoenix region after winning the Big 10 Tournament. The Spartans will face LIU Brooklyn, which is headed to its second straight NCAA Tournament after winning the Northeast Conference Tournament,
