2011 Elite 8 Schedule And Announcers For Saturday's Action

Well, here we go. The Elite Eight matchups will get underway tonight, starting tonight with a matchup of two great coaches (Brad Stevens vs. Billy Donovan) and another of two of this tournament's best players (Kemba Walker vs. Derrick Williams). Here's a rundown of today's action:

Butler Bulldogs vs. Florida Gators, Elite Eight Matchup, 4:30 on CBS (Gus Johnson, Len Elmore, Reggie Miller): The Butler Bulldogs are coming off a win against the Wisconsin Badgers and will take on the Florida Gators, who are fresh off of beating 'The Jimmer' and the rest of the BYU Cougars. Butler certainly isn't playing like an eight seed right now, and look to show everyone how good they really are by going to back to back final fours. Hopefully this game will be close with under two minutes to go so we can all be treated to more Gus Johnson moments.

Connecticut Huskiesvs. Arizona Wildcats, Elite Eight Matchup, 7:00 on CBS (Verne Lundquist and Bill Raftery): Arizona is coming off probably one of the most surprising victories in the Sweet Sixteen round, as they trampled Duke in the second half thanks in large part to Derrick Williams. They will be countered by Kemba Walker and the UConn Huskies, who have simply turned it up a notch since the Big East tournament started.
