NCAA Tournament 2011 Scores: VCU, Kentucky Advance To Elite Eight With Close Wins

The 2011 NCAA basketball tournament's Elite Eight is now set. After half the Elite Eight was decided on Thursday, the other half was decided on Friday with a pair of blowouts and a pair of exciting games.

It was quite the contrast between the early and late games on Friday, as the first two were basically over before halftime. The second two were right down to the wire, with the Ohio State/Kentucky game being decided by a late shot by Brandon Knight and VCU edging Florida State in overtime.

Here is a full look at the NCAA tournament's scores from Friday:

No. 2 North Carolina def. No. 11 Marquette, 81-63

No. 1 Kansas def. No. 12 Richmond, 77-57

No. 4 Kentucky def. No. 1 Ohio State, 62-60

No. 11 VCU def. No. 10 Florida State, 72-71 (OT)
