Big Ten Tournament 2012: Day 2 Bracket And Schedule Finalized

Following Thursday's action, the Day 2 bracket and schedule for the 2012 Big Ten Tournament is now official. The 12-seed Penn State Nittany Lions didn't put up much of a fight, sending the Indiana Hoosiers on to the next round to tip off against the Wisconsin Badgers at 2:30 p.m. ET in what should be one of the more highly anticipated matchups of the day.

The top-seeded Michigan State Spartans will take on Iowa after the Hawkeyes survived a tight bout with Illinois. Michigan got a break when the Northwestern Wildcats blew a lead before falling to the 10-seed Minnesota Golden Gophers in overtime.
