2014 NCAA Tournament: Elite Eight Saturday Open Thread

Talk about the NCAA Tournament Elite Eight games in here.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to the A Sea of Blue NCAA Tournament Elite Eight Open Game thread. Today's games are as follows, courtesy of Ken Pomeroy:

Game Time (ET) Location Venue
37 Dayton vs. 1 Florida 06:09:00 PM Memphis, TN FedExForum
6 Wisconsin vs. 2 Arizona 08:49:00 PM Anaheim, CA Honda Center

If you're like me, you're still maybe a little shocked by how it all went down, and the outcome considering what was arrayed against Kentucky in the form of injuries and foul problems. I'm still trying to assimilate it all.

Today's games feature the Florida Gators versus the Dayton Flyers, and the Wisconsin Badgers versus Arizona Wildcats.  It will be interesting to see how Florida deals with the Cinderella Flyers, who have really impressed me so far.  Arizona and Wisconsin pit the powerful Badger offense against the stingy Wildcats.  Should be a couple of very good games.

Enjoy the first two games of the Elite Eight.
