Sunday Elite 8 Open Thread - Where We Learn The Last Half Of The Final 4

The East and Southwest Regionals of the NCAA Tournament finish today, and the winners round out the Final 4 for next weekend in Houston. CBS has the games, starting at 11:20 this morning PDT with the Southwest Regional from San Antonio.

Kansas (35-2), the only number one seed left in the tournament, faces Virginia Commonwealth (26-11), the only real "Cinderella" in today's games. The Rams might not really be that big of an underdog, considering they not only have 4 tournament wins, they are all against higher seeded teams from 4 different "BCS/Power" conferences. The Jayhawks have won all three of their tournament games by double digit margins, however.

The last of the "Elite 8" games, the East Regional final, tips at 2:05 west coast time, in Newark.

North Carolina (29-7) takes on Kentucky (28-8) in a match up of two of the storied, brand name programs in the sport in Newark in the East Regional. The Tar Heels and Wildcats have combined for 12 National Championships and 31 trips to the Final Four. Which one will add to that stat this season?

Here's the details on the day's schedule:
