NCAA Tournament 2011: Kansas Vs. VCU Preview

The Elite Eight is upon us in the NCAA Tournament, and Sunday has two great games, one of which is when Kansas takes on VCU.

The Jayhawks are the only remaining No. 1 seed and they take on the only double-digit seed left in the field in 11-seed VCU.

Kansas has looked strong throughout the tournament, winning all three of their games by at least 14 points. The Jayhawks took care of another potential Cinderella in Richmond on Friday night, beating them by 20.

VCU pulled off convincing upsets over Georgetown and Purdue, winning both games by 18. They then barely got past Florida State on Friday, winning by a single point in overtime. Even more impressive about the VCU run is the fact that they had to win a play in game just to make the field of 64.

Now one of the biggest basketball programs in the nation takes on a team that many said did not even belong in the field, with a berth in the Final Four on the line.

The following slide show breaks down the starting five, benches, coaches and momentum and picks a winner for this Sunday afternoon battle.
