March Madness 2012, Lamar Vs. Vermont: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The No. 16 seed Vermont Catamounts take on the No. 16 seed Lamar Cardinals on Wednesday night in a play-in game for the 2012 NCAA tournament.

Vermont survived a hostile road environment to dispatch Stony Brook in the finals of the America East Tournament, 51-43. The Catamounts have won 14 of their past 15 during John Becker's first season as head coach.

Lamar lost to Stephen F. Austin on Feb. 22, prompting a rant from coach Pat Knight directed at the team's seniors that made national news. It's unclear exactly what affect the speech had, but Anthony Miles went to the coach the next day and apologized on behalf of the senior class, and the Cardinals have not lost since. Their most recent triumph was a 70-49 shellacking of McNeese State in the Southland Conference Tournament championship.

Game Time: 6:40 p.m. ET, Wednesday, March 14

Location: University of Dayton Arena, Dayton, OH

TV: TRU
