Conference USA Tournament 2012: Quarterfinal Bracket, Schedule And More

The Central Florida Knights begin their Conference USA Tournament campaign on Thursday, as they look to secure an NCAA Tournament berth. They're seeded No. 4 in the tournament and play in in the final quarterfinal on Thursday. East Carolina and Southern Miss kick things off in the early afternoon.

The Memphis Tigers are the No. 1 seed in the tournament and should be in the NCAA tournament regardless of what happens on Thursday. They face the UTEP Miners -- winners of a first-round game on Wednesday night -- in the first game of the night session. The winner of that game faces the winner of the game between UCF and the UAB Blazers.

Marshall and Tulsa play in the late afternoon game, and the winner of that game faces the ECU-Southern Miss winner.
