Kansas and Kentucky joined Ohio State and Louisville as members of the 2012 Final Four on Sunday, so the field for New Orleans is now set. Here’s the schedule of games that will lead to the crowning of a champion in the NCAA Tournament.
The two Final Four-round games are on Saturday, March 31. At 6:09 p.m., Louisville takes on Kentucky in a battle for state bragging rights. Kentucky is, understandably, a big favorite, with the line currently set at nine points, although Louisville has beaten Marquette, Notre Dame, Cincinnati, Michigan State and Florida in the past month, so it’s hard to rule the Cardinals out.
Then at 8:49 p.m., it’s Ohio State vs. Kansas. Ohio State is a 2.5-point favorite. Both knocked off No. 1 seeds in the Elite Eight round, with Ohio State beating Syracuse and Kansas beating North Carolina.
Both games will be broadcast on CBS.
The championship game will be played Monday, April 2.
