St. Louis, MO – The road to the Final Four will go through St. Louis.

Three games will be played at the Edward Jones Dome this weekend (two Friday night; one Sunday).

Tonight's first game features a dark horse, Alabama-Birmingham, who has so far beaten Southern Illinois and number one seed Stanford to get to St. Louis.

The Blazers will play Kansas at 6:10.

Kansas coach Bill Self has been getting ready for UAB's defense by putting eight defenders on the court against his starting line-up in practice this week. The Jayhawks are 23-8; UAB is 22-9.

The second game in St. Louis tonight matches Georgia Tech and Nevada. The two winners meet Sunday for a berth in the Final Four.
