The Tournament is really getting down to crunch time. After last night's games we are down to the final Elite Eight teams. There was a good bit of drama yesterday - notably the first overtime game of this year's Tournament, the near-massive upset of UNC by the University of Ohio - but also NC State coming close to effecting Kansas's traditional departure from March Madness.

There are a pair of games being contested today, with Rick Pitino's Louisville squad taking on BN's 'favorite' team from Tallahassee for a Final Four spot against the winner of tomorrow's UNC/Kansas game. In the nightcap, the Chalk gets their revenge, with Syracuse playing Ohio State for the right to take on the Kentucky/Baylor winner in the National Semifinals

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).

  • 1:30pm PDT: Louisville (4) v. Florida (7)
  • 4:05pm PDT: Syracuse (1) v. Ohio State (2)
