Kentucky had little problem with the No. 3 Baylor Bears on Sunday afternoon, picking up an 82-70 victory. Anthony Davis scored 18 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, but he gave everyone a scare when he fell awkwardly on his ankle. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist scored a team-high 19 points. Quincy Acy and Pierre Jackson scored 22 and 21 points, respectively, for Baylor.

Kansas and the No. 1 North Carolina Tar Heels played an exciting first half that resulted in a 47-47 halftime score, but the second half couldn't quite live up to that. Kansas pulled away for the 80-67 victory. Tyshawn Taylor led the way for the Jayhawks with 22 point, but all five starters scored at least 10 points. North Carolina wasn't able to compete without Kendall Marshall and that showed in the second half. James Michael McAdoo led the team with 15 points off the bench.

Here is the complete schedule for the Final Four:

No. 1 Kentucky Wildcats vs. No. 4 Louisville Cardinals (4:09 p.m. MT, CBS)

No. 2 Kansas Jayhawks vs. No. 2 Ohio St. Buckeyes (6:49 p.m. MT, CBS)
