The NCAA Tournament 2012 bracket and seedings were announced a few hours ago, however, game times and television information weren't listed. Late Sunday night this information was released, and the No. 1-seeded team in the East Region bracket, the Syracuse Orange men's basketball program, will play UNC-Asheville Bulldogs at approximately 3:10 ET on Thursday.
The game will be broadcasted on truTV with Kevin Harlan calling the play-by-play with Len Elmore and Reggie Miller doing color commentary. Syracuse and UNC-Asheville will follow No. 8 Kansas St. Wildcats and No. 9 Southern Miss. Golden Eagles, which will tip off at 12:40 p.m. on truTV.
Here's what Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim and seniors, guard Scoop Jardine and forward Kris Joseph, had to say about the East region bracket and the upcoming road to the Final Four (via Scout.com's John Garcia Jr. and CuseNation.com.):
