NCAA Bracket 2012: Ohio State, Louisville Win Regions, Advance To Final Four

This much we know about the Final Four: it will feature Ohio State and Louisville, as each program advanced on Saturday night by winning their respective regions.

Ohio State took down Syracuse in a thriller at the TD Garden, with a crowd filled with Ohio State red and Syracuse orange, and each faithful cheering on its team in earnest. Jared Sullinger led the Buckeyes with 17 points, and they downed the Orange 77-70 to move on from the East Region.

Louisville, who earned one of the more impressive victories on Thursday night against Michigan State, endured a first half struggle before overcoming the Florida Gators 72-68 to win the West.

The two teams will learn which opponents await them in next weekend's Final Four on Sunday, as Kentucky and Baylor and North Carolina and Kansas go toe-to-toe in the remaining Elite 8 match ups.
