And then there were two: The winner of the NCAA men's basketball tournament will be crowned tonight in Glendale after the championship game between the Purdue Boilermakers and University of Connecticut Huskies.

  • The two No. 1 seeds will tip off at 6:20pm.

Flashback: Purdue ended No. 11 seed North Carolina State's Cinderella run with a 63-50 victory Saturday.

  • Defending champion UConn ousted No. 4 seed Alabama 86-72.

How to watch: If you're not one of the 73,000 people watching the game at State Farm Stadium, you can catch it on TBS, TNT or TruTV.
