Louisville and Kentucky meet late this evening in arguably the matchup of the tournament. This rivalry goes to 11.
As the undercard, much hated Michigan takes on a team that could spell trouble in KenPom favorite, Tennessee. Staggered about 30 minutes there after, Iowa State and UConn tee off from historic Madison Square Garden.
The non UL-UK late game? Tom Izzo's Michigan State Spartans against upstart (though one seed) University of Virginia. That one could prove to be one of the most interesting games of the entire weekend.
