There were no true upsets on Friday night as the Sweet Sixteen came to a close. Gonzaga got their revenge on UCLA, Louisville took care of business against NC State, Michigan State proved why you don't bet against Tom Izzo in March while Duke took down Utah. Now, we've got four more games this weekend to determine who will punch a ticket to the Final Four in Indianapolis (or Annapolis, if you got stuck carpooling with Charles Barkley).
Saturday's TV Schedule
|March 28, 2015||Time (PT)||TV|
|No. 1 Wisconsin vs. No. 2 Arizona||3:09 p.m.||TBS|
|No. 1 Kentucky vs. No. 3 Notre Dame||5:49 p.m.||CBS|
Arizona is, of course, the last Pac-12 team standing, to no surprise. I've said all along that the Wildcats are the only team that can beat the Wildcats. See what I did there? That's called a safe prediction. No, but seriously, I stand by my pick for Arizona to take down Kentucky. Y'all can blast me on Twitter if it doesn't happen. But first, Sean Miller and the Wildcats will be looking for revenge against Wisconsin, the very same team that took down Arizona in an overtime thriller in last year's Elite Eight.
Notre Dame is a talented basketball team, but I have a feeling Kentucky has another whooping up their sleeve. I expect Kentucky to win easily to advance to the Final Four to face Arizona.
