Tonight is always the part of the NCAA tournament where I get just a little depressed — it’s the last night on which we’ll need to flip channels back and forth. Sad face.

The Sweet 16 finishes off with its last four games tonight, determining who the last four teams to advance to the regional finals will be.

Here’s the TV schedule. All games are also streamed on NCAA.com.

NCAA tournament schedule, March 24

(1) North Carolina Tar Heels vs. (4) Butler Bulldogs 7:09 p.m. CBS Memphis Jim Nantz / Grant Hill / Bill Raftery / Tracy Wolfson
(3) Baylor Bears vs. (7) South Carolina Gamecocks 7:29 p.m. TBS New York City Verne Lundquist / Jim Spanarkel / Allie LaForce
(3) UCLA Bruins vs. (2) Kentucky Wildcats Approx. 9:39 p.m. CBS Memphis Jim Nantz / Grant Hill / Bill Raftery / Tracy Wolfson

The marquee matchup is obviously Kentucky-UCLA, a battle between two of the true blue bloods of college basketball. There will be so many future NBA draft picks on the floor, led by the most fun player in college basketball: the Bruins’ Lonzo Ball.

Unfortunately, that likely means you’re going to hear an interview from LaVar Ball, but hey, you take the good with the bad, amirite?

None of the others stand out to me as particularly noteworthy, which is a little weird, given the stakes tonight. That’s what happens when teams like Wisconsin and South Carolina take out sexy teams like Villanova and Duke.
