March Madness 2012, Elite Eight Schedule: Last Final Four Teams Crowned On Sunday

The Louisville Cardinals and the Ohio St. Buckeyes booked trips to the Final Four in New Orleans, LA, with victories over the Florida Gators and the Syracuse Orange on Saturday night, but they are waiting until Sunday afternoon to find out who they will face down in the bayou.

Anthony Davis and the No. 1 Kentucky Wildcats will look to defeat the No. 3 Baylor Bears for the South Region title. The Wildcats have cruised to victories over Western Kentucky, Iowa State and Indiana to reach this point. The Bears had a slightly tougher time to reach this point, as South Dakota State caught them off guard in the first game of the tournament while Brady Heslip's nine three-pointers pushed them past Colorado. They then escaped on Friday with a 75-70 victory over Xavier.

In the final game of the day, the No. 1 North Carolina Tar Heels face the No. 2 Kansas Jayhawks in the Midwest Region final. The big story here is whether point guard Kendall Marshall will play for the Tar Heels. He broke his wrist last week and missed Friday's game against the Ohio Bobcats. However, he practiced on Saturday, but his status was left as questionable after that. Stilman White would start in place of Marshall again if the wrist injury prevents him from taking the court.
