Only 12 teams remain in the 2012 NCAA Tournament and by the end of the day Friday, we'll be down to the elite eight. Three of the four one seeds remain, as the tournament lost its first one Thursday night, when the Michigan State Spartans were routed by the Louisville Cardinals. The three other teams to advance to the elite eight on Thursday were Florida, Ohio State and Syracuse.
Both tournament favorites, North Carolina and Kentucky, will be in action Friday, when the Tar Heels take on the 13 seed Ohio Bobcats – likely without Kendall Marshall – and the Wildcats take on Indiana.
