Michigan blew through the South region thanks to AP Player of the Year Trey Burke. They defeated South Dakota State, VCU, Kansas and Florida to reach the Final Four for the first time in 20 years. Their most memorable win was over Kansas in the Sweet 16, when Burke scored 18 second half points to bring the Wolverines back from a 14-point deficit. He later drained a 30-foot jump shot with four seconds left to send the game to overtime.
Syracuse also broke a long drought -- this is their first time in the semifinals since their championship run in 2003. They used their withering 2-3 zone defense to dispatch Montana, California, Indiana and Marquette in the East region. Only one of their victories was by less than double digit points.
Here's the complete schedule for Saturday's game:
Game time: 8:49 p.m. ET
