After landing the No. 16 seed in the 2012 NCAA Tournament, the Vermont Catamounts will be playing 16th-seeded Lamar to kick things off in their First Four game on March 14. The Catamounts received an automatic bid after winning the America East Conference Tournament, 51-43, over Stony Brook.

The Lamar Cardinals (23-11, 11-5 Southland) earned the automatic bid from the Southland Conference by winning the conference tournament championship game, 70-49, over McNeese State. Lamar has three players who score in double figures: Mike James (17.2 ppg), Anthony Miles (14.5) and Devon Lamb (11.9). Lamb leads the team in rebounds with 7.9 per game while Miles leads the team in assists with 4.1 per game. James, Miles and Lamb each average at least 1.6 steals per game. Osas Ebomwonyi (6-11, 220) only averages 12.4 minutes per game in the middle for the Cardinals but swats 1.9 shots per game to lead the team. In the Southland Tournament championship game, Ebomwonyi had 9 points, 9 rebounds and 6 blocks in 25 minutes.
