RALEIGH, N.C. - No. 1 seed Virginia (30-6) will play No. 4 seed Michigan State (28-8) in the semifinals of the East Region on Friday, March 28 at Madison Square Garden in New York. Tipoff is set for approximately 9:57 p.m. ET and the game will be televised on TBS.

The winner of the game will meet either No. 3 seed Iowa State (28-7) or No. 7 seed Connecticut (28-8) in the East Regional final on Sunday, March 30.

Virginia is making its first NCAA Tournament regional semifinal appearance since 1995 when the Cavaliers defeated No. 1 seed Kansas (67-58) before losing to No. 2 seed Arkansas (68-61) in the Midwest Regional final.
