March Madness: 2011 Final Four Schedule

It's been a crazy two weeks of March Madness - something that Robbie Griffin took a look at earlier - and it's all going to culminate this coming weekend with the Final Four in Houston, Texas. Hopefully the remaining three games of the 2011 NCAA Tournament are as good as the Elite Eight games were, but there's certainly no guarantee of that.

The schedule for this weekend is no surprise. The two Cinderellas, Butler and Virginia Commonwealth, are playing in the early game on Saturday with a scheduled tipoff of 6:09 p.m. EDT, and of course, it will be broadcast on CBS. Butler will be playing for a chance to play in their second consecutive title game - a game it lost last year to Duke.

The second game pits the two powerhouses remaining against each other. The Kentucky Wildcats, who knocked off the top-seeded Ohio State Buckeyes en route to the Final Four as well as the North Carolina Tar Heels, will be taking on the Connecticut Huskies. UConn, of course, has been on an historic run, winning five games in five days to win the Big East Tournament before winning the West region of their bracket.

Tipoff for the UConn/Kentucky game is scheduled for 8:49 p.m. EDT.

The winners of both games will face off on Monday in the national title game at 9 p.m. EDT.
