Final Four TV Schedule, Matchups, and Tip Times

This was originally posted on March 27th, 2011

I feel like I just watched Kirk Gibson hit a hobbled home run, because all I can think right now is, “I don’t…believe…what I just saw!”

But it wasn’t a Kirk Gibson home run that I just saw; it was a VCU Rams home run. More like a grand slam, against #1 seeded Kansas. And now the Virginia Commonwealth Rams, led by Shaka Smart, will be facing the Butler Bulldogs, led by Brad Stevens, in the Final Four.


We’ll find out in a couple of hours who will be facing UCONN in the other Final Four matchup. Enjoy that game. In the meantime, here is the Final Four TV schedule:
