The first three rounds of the 2011 NCAA men's basketball tournament are in the books. The First Four took place last Tuesday and Wednesday, and the second round was held on Thursday and Friday. The third round, also known as the round of 32 teams, took place on Saturday and Sunday, narrowing down the field to just 16 teams.
In the East Region, the top two seeds, the fourth seed and the 11th seed are still alive. No. 1 Ohio State will take on No. 4 Kentucky, and No. 2 North Carolina will play No. 11 Marquette. Both of these games will take place on Friday in Newark, with the winners meeting on Sunday for a spot in the Final Four.
