As Kentucky and Louisville continue their battle for the first bid in the NCAA National Championship, two teams wait for their own chance at the 2012 Final Four. Kansas vs. Ohio State is the other game on the schedule, and the Jayhawks and Buckeyes will square off after the close of Game 1—scheduled at 7:49 CDT. Unanimous All-American Thomas Robinson and the Jayhawks, who escaped from an upset-filled Midwest regional as the No. 2 seed, will face another No. 2 in Ohio State after beating the No. 1 North Carolina Tar Heels 80-67 in their Elite Eight matchup in St. Louis.
With Anthony Davis and the Wildcats leading handily in the second half, it looks like whoever crosses the Final Four finish line will have their work cut out for them against Kentucky and their dominant freshman.
