The George Mason Patriots defeated the Villanova Wildcats, 61-57, to advance to face the No. 1 seeded Ohio State Buckeyes in the NCAA Tournament. Now, we know when the two teams will play. The 2011 NCAA Tournament schedule for Sunday has been released, and the two teams will be playing in prime time.
The Patriots and Buckeyes will play their Round of 32 matchup at 5:15 p.m. on Sunday. The game, which will be broadcasted from Cleveland, will be broadcast on CBS. Gus Johnson and Len Elmore will once again be on the call. The game will be followed by No. 11 seed Marquette taking on No. 3 Syracuse at 7:45 on TruTV.
The Patriots are going to have their hands full with Jared Sullinger, the nation's top freshman. George Mason is not a big team and they struggled to keep Villanova off the glass. But they also never quit, and they have two difficult matchups in Cam Long and Luke Hancock.
