NCAA Tournament 2012, Cincinnati Vs. Ohio State: TV Schedule, Game Time And More

It's a battle of Ohio in the East Regions semifinal, as Ohio State and Cincinnati square off Thursday night in Boston in Sweet 16 action.

The Buckeyes were expected by many to be here, led by sophomore forward Jared Sullinger, nifty point guard Aaron Craft and senior guard William Buford.

Not long ago, Cincinnati was in the news for the wrong reason, as an ugly early season brawl with cross-town rival Xavier painted the Bearcats as a misguided bunch.

Now the two teams will play for just the second time in 50 years, with a spot in the Elite Eight up for grabs. Both squads get it done on the defensive end, with each surrendering around just 60 points per game. The test will be for Cincinnati's offense in keeping up with Ohio State, which averages 75.1 points per contest.

Game Time: 9:45 p.m. EST

TV Coverage: CBS

Location: TD Garden, Boston
