Elite Eight: Kentucky (4) vs. UNC (2)

East Region: Kentucky Wildcats (4) vs. North Carolina Tar Heels (2) Sun. March 27, 2011 4:55 p.m. EST

The Final Four will already have three teams set to make their way to Houston, Texas before this Elite Eight games gets underway, but both the Kentucky Wildcats (4) and the North Carolina Tar Heels (2) have a legitimate shot of ultimately being the National champions when it is all said and done in the 2011 NCAA Tournament.

Coming into their Elite Eight showdown in Newark, New Jersey, the Tar Heels and Wildcats have been able to battle throughout their matchups and get a shot to make it to the Final Four. This isn’t exactly new territory for the Tar Heels as they won the National Championship two years ago, but the Wildcats were unable to hold up last season despite having arguably the best all-around players in the country.

This game will be interesting to say the least and arguably the most competitive and even matchup of the Elite Eight. Not only are the Kentucky Wildcats (4) coming off an impressive win over the Ohio State Buckeyes (1) in which they were able to get the best of Jared Sullinger and company in the closing seconds, but they will be the favorites in this matchup with a -1.5 point spread.
