One half of the Final Four participants have been now been set, and this afternoon we get to watch the last two teams earn their trip to New Orleans. Yesterday, we were fortunate enough to watch a pair of great games to kick off the elite eight, including Louisville's epic comeback win over Florida as well as Ohio State's toppling of 1-seed Syracuse. Let's hope that today's contestants are as compelling.

There are two games being played today. Kentucky and Baylor will start play shortly in Atlanta, with the winner facing Ohio State in the National Semifinal. ESPN's extensive preview of the game is here, while Stewart Mandel's preview of both games is here - he sees Kentucky winning pretty decisively. The late game looks to be a closer affair, with the continuing absence of Kendall Marshall for UNC going up against the tendency of Kansas to fall short under Bill Self. ESPN.com College Basketball blog's preview is here.

Today's schedule is below. Both of today's games are being televised on CBS, and streamed online via MMOD ($3.99 for the remainder of the tournament).

  • 11:20am PDT: Kentucky (1) v. Baylor (3).
  • 2:05pm PDT: North Carolina (1) v. Kansas (2).
