(3) Florida vs. (4) Michigan in Arlington

03/31/2013

South Regional PreviewARLINGTON, TX – Brad Sham and Fran Fraschilla will be on hand to call the South Regional Final from Cowboys Stadium on the Westwood One Radio Network.

After ending the Cinderella run of Tournament darlings Florida Gulf Coast University, Billy Donovan’s Gators will continue their quest for the school’s third national title, after winning back-to-back crowns in 2006 and 2007. Florida has not returned to the Final Four since winning their last championship, and have been bounced in the Elite Eight each of the last two seasons.

The championship drought for Michigan has been significantly longer, nearly a quarter-century since winning it all in 1989. The Wolverines reached the Elite Eight with a stunning comeback victory over Kansas on Friday night, after trailing by as many as 14 points late in regulation. It’s Michigan’s first Elite Eight appearance since 1994, as they now stand one victory away from the school’s first Final Four since consecutive appearances in 1992 and 1993 with the “Fab Five”, though both appearances were vacated due to NCAA violations levied against the school.

Here are the guys with a preview of the game and big stories from Cowboys Stadium.
