2012 NCAA Bracket: South Dakota State Could Face Duke, Kentucky Or Indiana In South Region

The South Dakota State Jackrabbits have their mind set on becoming a Cinderella team at the 2012 NCAA Tournament and they will certainly see their fair share of David vs. Goliath matchups if they hope to make a run. Not only will they see a very talented team in Baylor to begin the tournament, they could potentially face Duke, Indiana and/or Kentucky should they advance to the second weekend.

Here is their complete bracket:

No. 1 Kentucky vs. No. 16 Mississippi Valley State/Western Kentucky (Thursday)

No. 8 Iowa State vs. No. 9 UConn (Thursday)

No. 5 Wichita State vs. No. 12 VCU (Thursday)

No. 4 Indiana vs. No. 13 New Mexico State (Thursday)

No. 2 Duke vs. No. 15 Lehigh (Friday)

No. 7 Notre Dame vs. No. 10 Xavier (Friday)

No. 3 Baylor vs. No. 14 South Dakota State (Thursday)

No. 6 UNLV vs. No. 11 Colorado (Thursday)

Certainly not easy, but if being a bracket buster was so easy, everyone would do it. The Jackrabbits need to put their focus directly towards the Baylor Bears. If they somehow pull the massive upset, then you start looking down the road a bit.
