Sweet 16 is not looking sweet for #2 Arizona, as the upbeat Xavier Musketeers punched a ticket to the Elite 8. They play Gonzaga for a spot in the Final Four. The Big Ten faltered in their attempt to add two teams to the field of eight. Michigan played as poor as they have; over the past month, and their last second three-point attempt was missed. Purdue played an intense first half and then mighty Kansas pulled away, to drop 98 points. The Ducks play the Jayhawks for a trip to the Final Four.
Tonight, the pesky Badgers battle the Gators, while a surprising South Carolina team takes on Baylor. The winners play each other Sunday for their Final Four ticket. In the most “calm” bracket, ACC power North Carolina plays the Butler Bulldogs and the winner will face the winner of UCLA vs. Kentucky. That could be the best game of Friday night.
