Here’s what to know.
The Elite Eight at the NCAA tournament continues Sunday with the last two regional games of March Madness. There’s an East regional final between South Carolina and Florida, which is followed by the South regional final between North Carolina and Kentucky. The action starts in the mid-afternoon and runs into the evening.
Sunday’s NCAA tournament schedule of games:
2:20 p.m. ET: Florida vs. South Carolina (CBS)
5:05 p.m. ET: North Carolina vs. Kentucky (CBS)
The North Carolina-Kentucky game is the marquee event of the day on paper, pitting the No. 1 seed Heels against the No. 2 Wildcats. Those are two programs extraordinarily rich with history, and they’re coached by two giants of the modern game in Roy Williams and John Calipari. The court will be littered with tomorrow’s first-round NBA draft picks, and it sets up as a difficult game to pick. North Carolina has settled as about a 2.5-point favorite, which is just a bit off a tossup.
Florida and South Carolina will play an all-SEC South final. Both of those teams are on magical-feeling runs at the moment. Florida’s Sweet 16 win against Wisconsin was one of the greatest games in years, and South Carolina has moved quickly to establish itself as a forced to be reckoned with. These teams split their season series, 1-1. The Elite Eight isn’t such a bad setting for a rubber match.
The Final Four doesn’t start for almost another week. Its first games, the two national semifinals, are both set for Saturday evening in Glendale, Ariz. The championship game is the following Monday, with everything taking place at University of Phoenix Stadium. That’s ordinarily the home of the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals.
