NCAA Tournament LIVE SCORES, UPDATES: Duke, Michigan, Purdue In Action

03/16/2012 06:48 pm ET

Last is certainly not least when it comes to the eight Friday evening games that will conclude the second round (don't forget those play-in games..) of the 2012 NCAA Tournament.

After Memphis and Saint Louis get the night's schedule underway at 6:50, Duke and Michigan each start their tournament journeys shortly thereafter.

Michigan faces Ohio University, who will certainly make their entire homestate happy -- even the folks who root for that other school in Columbus -- if they can knock off the No. 4 Wolverines. Coach K's Duke squad will face a Lehigh team looking to bust a lot of brackets.
