Could we be headed for an all-No. 1 seed Final Four? For all the chaos of the first weekend, all the top seeds are still standing and will be playing Saturday and Sunday for the right to advance to the national semifinals in Houston, Texas.
One thing we know for sure: The ACC will make up half the field next weekend, since UNC-Notre Dame and Virginia-Syracuse are the two matchups on the right side of the bracket. The top seeded Tar Heels and Cavaliers will be heavily favored in both games, which are on Sunday.
On the other side, it's a clash of heavyweights, as the 1 and 2 seeds made it all the way through. Both games figure not only to be tight contests, but both figure to also be wildly entertaining. Kansas-Villanova features two of kenpom.com's top three teams, and Oregon-Oklahoma is going to make you tired just watching it, given how both of those teams love to get up and down the floor.
Here's the schedule. Feel free to also use this as a place to discuss the games on both days.
