2011 NCAA Tournament Schedule: Kansas Vs. VCU, North Carolina Vs. Kentucky

Here's your schedule of Sunday's NCAA Tournament games, in which we'll see which teams from the East and Southwest regions will join Butler and Connecticut in the Final Four. All times are Eastern.

At 2:20 PM on CBS, No. 1 Kansas will face No. 11 VCU. It's been a relatively easy run so far for Kansas, which has victories so far over a No. 16 seed (Boston University), a No. 9 seed (Illinois), and a No. 12 seed (Richmond). Now they're facing off against yet another low seed. As fun as VCU's run through March Madness has been, this might be where the train stops - arguably the best team remaining might be too much for the Rams to handle.

At 5:05 PM on CBS, No. 2 North Carolina will play No. 4 Kentucky, in a matchup of two of college basketball's most storied programs. These are both relatively high-scoring teams, and North Carolina has already allowed 80-plus points against Long Island and Washington so far in the tournament, so expect an up-tempo game.

Here are some resources for Sunday's games:
