It shouldn't come as much of a surprise that the North Carolina Tar Heels will get the latest game on Saturday's Final Four schedule.
The Tar Heels have had the latest game for three straight rounds in the NCAA men's basketball tournament.
The first round gave UNC its earliest tip-off time of the tournament - 7:20 p.m. against First Four winner Florida Gulf Coast. That was the only round in which the Tar Heels didn't close out the schedule on their game nights.
Saturday, North Carolina (32-6) will face ACC rival Syracuse (23-13) at 8:49 p.m. on TBS.
