Kansas vs. Michigan: Game time, TV schedule for 2013 March Madness

USA TODAY Sports

Fresh off a second half comeback against North Carolina on Sunday, the Kansas Jayhawks will return to the court on Friday to face Michigan in the South Region. The winner will advance to play Sunday against the winner of Florida and Florida Gulf Coast.

After a wild, second-half comeback against North Carolina in the Round of 32, the No. 1 seeded Kansas Jayhawks will return to the court on Friday evening when they take on the fourth-seeded Michigan Wolverines in a South Regional semifinal. The game is set for a 7:37 p.m. ET tipoff and will be played at Cowboys Stadium, in Arlington, Texas.

If the Jayhawks are to get a win on Friday night, they'll need another strong performance from center Jeff Withey.

The senior is coming off quite possibly the best game of his career, in which he scored 16 points, grabbed 16 rebounds and added five blocks in the victory over North Carolina. Guard Travis Releford added 22 points for Kansas, which improved to 31-5 on the season with Sunday's win.

While Kansas will rely on solid post play, Michigan will need a big game from guards Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr. to notch a victory. Burke is coming off an 18-point, seven-assist effort in a Round of 32 win over VCU, while Hardaway has averaged 17.5 points in two tournament games so far.

The winner of Kansas-Michigan will advance to play in Sunday's South Regional final, against either Florida or Florida Gulf Coast.

Game time, TV: 7:37 p.m. ET, TBS

Location: Cowboys Stadium, Arlington, Texas
