We continue to move along in the 2011 NCAA tournament bracket. Already moving on in the Sweet 16 from Thursday's games are Florida, Butler, Arizona and UConn. In those games, the second No. 1 seed went down -- Duke -- following Pittsburgh's loss to Butler last weekend.
Friday's schedule, though, has two more No. 1 seeds playing. It starts with the Kansas Jayhawks and continues with the Ohio State Buckeyes. The game start at 6:15 p.m. (CT) and the final game will go until about 11:30 p.m. (CT) or so. In other words, buck down because you already have your plans for the night.
Obviously in the Kansas City area the KU basketball game is the biggest attraction but, if you've gone with the multi-TV set-up, you're in good hands. There are lower seeds playing so we'll also be on upset alert throughout the night.
Marv Albert and Jim Nantz's team lead the announcing crew which means no Gus Johnson, unfortunately. Here's the schedule with the TV, times and announcers for Friday's Sweet 16 games:
