The 2012 NCAA Tournament bracket is set and even though the Stanford Cardinal fell to the UCLA Bruins in the finals of the MPSF tournament they still earned the No. 1 overall seed. UCLA and Stanford split the two games they played, but I am guessing the 8-1 win on the regular season finale is why Stanford got the nod and the first at-large berth.
The final at-large berth went to the USC Trojans who claimed third place in the MPSF tournament by defeating Cal 6-4, and the No. 3 seed.
The tournament will be hosted by San Diego State and the tournament will begin on Friday May 11 and running through Sunday May 13.
Here is the first round games (all times pacific):
No. 1 Stanford vs. No. 8 Panoma-Pitzer, 6:30 p.m.
No. 2 UCLA vs. No. 7 Iona College, 3 p.m.
No. 3 USC vs. No. 6 Princeton, 4:45 p.m.
No. 4 UC Irvine vs. No. 5 LMU, 8:15 p.m.
