NCAA Bracket 2012 Update: West Region's Thursday Scores

Of the four 2012 NCAA tournament games played in the West Region on Thursday, only one was really close until the end. No. 5 New Mexico beat No. 12 Long Beach State by a score of 75-68, but the Lobos weren't able to gain a comfortable lead until the very end of the game. In the other games, only one had a margin in single digits. The other two were decided by 17 and 20 points, so there wasn't a ton of excitement in the West Region on Thursday.

Here's a look at the scores:

No. 5 New Mexico def. No. 12 Long Beach State, 75-68
No. 4 Louisville def. No. 13 Davidson, 69-62

No. 6 Murray State def. No. 11 Colorado State, 58-41
No. 3 Marquette def. No. 14 BYU, 88-68

On Friday, there are four more games on the schedule for the West Region: No. 1 Michigan State vs. No. 16 LIU Brooklyn, No. 8 Memphis vs. No. 9 Saint Louis, No. 7 Florida vs. No. 10 Virginia and No. 2 Missouri vs. No. 15 Norfolk State.
