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 Southwest Region, Kansas is the only single-digit seed still alive. The other three teams are the No. 10, No. 11 and No. 12 seeds. No. 1 Kansas will take on No. 12 Richmond, and No. 10 Florida State will play No. 11 VCU. Both of these games will take place on Friday in San Antonio, with the winners meeting on Sunday for a spot in the Final Four.
