2014 NCAA MEN’S BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT
March 30, 2014  | By David Bianculli

CBS, 2:00 p.m. ET

 

In yesterday’s games, one top seed (Florida, in the South) won, while the other (Arizona, in the West) – fell, losing to No. 2 seed Wisconsin. That means there hasn’t been a single night this entire tournament in which at least one team didn’t lose to a lower-seeded one. March Madness indeed. Today’s two games are broadcast live on CBS, with the action beginning about 2:10 p.m. ET., when Michigan State (seeded No. 4 in the East) faces Connecticut (seeded No. 7). To get this far, Michigan State has beaten top-seeded Virginia, while Connecticut has beaten the East’s No. 2 and No. 3 seeds, Villanova and Iowa State. Then, at 5 p.m. ET, comes the Midwest regional final between No. 2 seed Michigan and No. 8 seed Kentucky. Because of upsets, Michigan has yet to face any team in this tournament seeded higher than No. 7, while Kentucky – the lowest-seeded team still standing – already has beaten No. 1 seed Wichita State and No. 4 seed Louisville to advance to this point. If there’s going to be an upset today, it could come in either game, but another win by Kentucky would be the more amazing story.
