NCAA: Cards Face Michigan State Tonight; Bellarmine In Final Four; UK-IU Friday

by Rick Howlett on March 22, 2012

The Louisville Cardinals return to the court tonight in the men’s NCAA tournament.

The fourth seeded Cards take on number one seed Michigan State in a West Region semifinal in Phoenix. Tipoff is set for 7:47pm.

The Kentucky Wildcats and Indiana Hoosiers square off tomorrow night in the South Region.

Indiana won the teams’ regular season meeting in December. IU coach Tom Crean (pictured) says the Wildcats are now playing better as a unit.

“As good as each individual player is on the team, I think it’s a great credit to (UK Coach John Calipari) in a way that no matter who’s there, no matter who’s not there, they continue to play at a really high level. I don’t think that defensive field goal percentage is an accident. I think they’re really, really good,” Crean said.

Kentucky and Indiana will tip off at 9:45pm tomorrow in Atlanta.

In the men’s Division II tournament, defending champ Bellarmine takes on Montevallo tonight for the chance to play for another national title Saturday.

Tipoff at Northern Kentucky University is 9:30pm.
