2012 Big East Tournament: Updated Bracket Midway Through Wednesday

After Pittsburgh was polished off by a dominant Georgetown team, Thursday's match-ups are starting to come into focus.

With two games already determined and two yet to be played this evening, it's time to take a look at the updated Big East Tournament Bracket.

No. 1 Syracuse vs. No. 9 UConn

Uconn comes into this game as a heavy but dangerous underdog. It wasn't even a month ago that the Huskies played Syracuse close, ultimately losing by two at home.

It seems whenever Jim Calhoun and Jim Boeheim get together, a classic is in the works.

The game can be seen on ESPN at 12:00 p.m. ET.

No. 4 Cincinnati vs. No. 5 Georgetown

Even though the Bearcats are the higher seed, many will expect this experienced Hoyas team to find a way. After beating the Panthers with suffocating defense on Wednesday afternoon, Georgetown is playing with ample confidence.

The game will be aired on ESPN at 2:00 p.m. ET

For now, No. 2 Marquette awaits the winner of Seton Hall/Louisville while No.3 Notre Dame will play either South Florida or Villanova.
