Well, that was quite a day of NCAA Tournament action on Friday, wasn't it? Saturday's slate has a lot to live up to -- but there are some pretty tasty match-ups on tap for today as well. The action gets underway with Wichita State's lockdown defense trying to carry them past Miami and into the Sweet 16. Then there's Duke-Yale, possibly the WASP-iest game of all time. Kentucky-Indiana is a game loaded with history and talented players and if both teams play as well as they did in Round One, it could be an absolute classic. The only thing standing between Iowa State and a spot in the Sweet 16? Arkansas-Little Rock. Go Trojans!
The evening action features three of the four #1 seeds in action, hopefully getting a stiffer test than they did in the first round. UNC-Providence features a showdown between Marcus Paige and Kris Dunn, while Kansas tries to stop UConn's incredible March mojo. Virginia-Butler... will probably feature a lot of defense. Utah-Gonzaga rounds out the evening slate, with a battle between West Coast powers led by talented big men.
Bring on the hoops!
