Welcome to the Sweet Sixteen, Friday night edition. Tonight’s game feature some very interesting matchups, perhaps even more interesting to most fans than the matchups of last night.
Here’s your schedule, courtesy of Kenpom.com:
|UCLA vs. Gonzaga||07:15:00 PM||Houston, TX||NRG Stadium|
|North Carolina St. vs. Louisville||07:37:00 PM||Syracuse, NY||Carrier Dome|
|Utah vs. Duke||09:45:00 PM||Houston, TX||NRG Stadium|
|Michigan St. vs. Oklahoma||10:07:00 PM||Syracuse, NY||Carrier Dome|
The big question is, will the Louisville Cardinals manage to get to the Elite Eight tonight? If so, they would make it further than I would’ve expected, although I do think they match up very well with the North Carolina St. Wolfpack.
Another storyline for Kentucky fans will be Kyle Wiltjer’s team, the Gonzaga Bulldogs. The former Kentucky player will be taking his NCAA Tournament championship experience with him to help guide the Zags forward. You can say what you want about Wiltjer, but he’s a different player than he was at Kentucky.
Sorry this is late. Enjoy the games tonight.
