Tournament Fest 2012: Day 4 Schedule


On Sunday afternoon and evening, three teams will claim early season tournament championships.

Saturday's lone final saw Florida State top St. Joseph's to claim the Coaches vs. Cancer title in Brooklyn, thanks to a balanced performance. Four Seminoles hit double-figures in scoring on the night. Notre Dame took out BYU in the consolation game.

Today, ESPN2 has a tripleheader of championship games, while CBS Sports Network showcases the Paradise Jam semifinals.

Ohio State got more of a contest than they bargained for in their semifinal win over projected Atlantic 10 bottom-feeder Rhode Island. The Buckeyes will look for an improved performance against Washington, who needed overtime to beat Seton Hall -- blowing a 16-point halftime lead in the process.
