Big Ten Tournament 2012 Schedule And Bracket For Day Three

Though an all-chalk final four of the 2012 Big Ten Tournament means that the tournament lacks a Cinderella angle, it also means that fans should get to see close to the best basketball possible, as the top four seeds in the tournament battle for the conference's championship and automatic bid into the 2012 NCAA Tournament.

The tournament's two games will take place Saturday afternoon, with the Michigan State Spartans (1) and Wisconsin Badgers (4) leading off and the rubber match between the Michigan Wolverines (2) and Ohio State Buckeyes (3) following that. The Spartans have defeated the Badgers in both meetings this season, while the Buckeyes and Wolverines both beat the other at home in 2012.

Here's tomorrow's full schedule and an updated bracket:

Michigan State Spartans (1) vs. Wisconsin Badgers (4), 12:40 p.m. CT, CBS

Michigan Wolverines (2) vs. Ohio State Buckeyes (3), 3:10 p.m. CT, CBS
