The rest of the Sweet 16 comes into focus.

And then there were 24.  Half of the Sweet 16 field is set.  The other half gets determined today.  Thursday's UPSETMANIA set up some oddball match-ups, like #11 UCLA vs #14 UAB, but Friday's near-scratch day has set up far more conventional match-ups -- but some very fascinating ones.  Virginia-Michigan State is a rematch from the NCAA Tournament a year ago (and one of the better games in the tournament, too), while Kansas-Wichita State is a delicious intra-state showdown that is rarely ever played (to the chagrin of Wichita State and their fans).  Oregon-Wisconsin matches two very potent offenses (who play at very different tempos), while UNI-Louisville pits one of the nation's best offenses (UNI) against one of the nation's top defenses (Louisville).  Oh, and there's that little Gonzaga-Iowa game, too... although we'll have a separate game thread for that, of course.

Here's your schedule (all times CT):

#2 Virginia VS #7 Michigan State CBS 11:10 AM
