MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - The Virginia basketball team is preparing to play Auburn in the Final Four of the NCAA Tournament.

The Cavaliers and Tigers will meet Saturday night at U.S. Bank Stadium. The Final Four is one of biggest events in sports but UVA players say they are focused on their national semifinal game.

"It is a spectacle but at the same time we have got a job to do and that's to play a tough Auburn team on Saturday," said UVA senior center Jack Salt. "So we can get caught up in it a little bit but at the same time, we gotta lock in, know the scout, practice hard and be ready."

Tip-off between the Cavaliers and Tigers is scheduled for 6:09 p.m. Saturday. The game will be televised on CBS.
