March Madness – Elite Eight: March 29 & 30

March Madness continues this week with the Elite Eight on Saturday and Sunday.
Here is the schedule:

Saturday, March 29
West
UCLA (1) vs. Xavier (3) – 6:40pm
East
UNC (1) vs. Louisville (3) – 9:05pm

Sunday, March 30
South
Memphis (1) vs. Texas (2) – 2:20pm

If you went to one of these schools, there is nothing better than watching the game with a bunch of your screaming fellow alumni. Due to the popularity of these games (it’s called “madness” for a reason, you know), it is suggested that you call ahead to make reservations.

So, where are the alumni watching?
