Big Ten Tournament Bracket 2012: Indiana Vs. Penn St. Time, TV Schedule And More

The 15th-ranked Indiana Hoosiers will take on the Penn State Nittany Lions in opening round play of the 2012 Big Ten basketball tournament, pitting the universities against each other for the third time this season.

Penn State is hopeful that the third time is indeed the charm, and that it can upend the Hoosiers for the first time this season. Indiana trounced the Nittany Lions in the last meeting in Bloomington, but Penn State hung tough on its home court when the schools met back in January.

The tip is set for 2:30 p.m. EST and the game can be seen on the Big Ten Network.
