March Madness: Which Friday Sweet 16 game is the best?

Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski shouts at his team during the first half in a second-round game against South Carolina in the NCAA men's college basketball tournament in Greenville S.C. Sunday

Next up, we have West Virginia and Gonzaga going head-to-head on Thursday. This year we have three 1 seeds and an 11 seed.

No. 2 Arizona vs. North Carolina is getting lots of love among the public but MI, the No. 7 seed in the Midwest Region, is a team who many Vegas insiders like at 7/2 to win the Midwest Region. West Virginia played them close and even lead in the final minutes, but the Zags execution in the last couple minutes of the game made the difference, propelling them to the Elite Eight.

Gonzaga by three, Xavier by two, and OR by one.

Sunday night's game was a tale of two halves, as the Blue Devils held SC to a mere 23 points in the first half. The Boilermakers also took part in a preseason scrimmage against West Virginia, which defeated the Jayhawks on February 13. The other games involve UCLA-Kentucky, Florida-Wisconsin, and South Carolina-Baylor. They committed 14 against the Mountaineers and exited the NCAA tournament. However, their historic season came to an end Saturday evening as they fell to No. 1 Gonzaga Bulldogs 79-73. No. 4 seed West Virginia West Virginia, not Arizona, poses the biggest threat in Gonzaga's quest to reach its Final Four.

Following that matchup, No. 2 Arizona Wildcats, the Pacific Coast Conference regular season and conference tournament champions, will play No. 11 Xavier, the lone double digit seed remaining in the tournament field. Only Xavier, Wisconsin, Michigan and SC have advanced beyond where their seeding would dictate they would go. Kansas' path to next week's Final Four includes the Sweet 16 matchup against the Purdue Boilermakers (+2000 to win), whose big man Caleb Swanigan could expose issues with the Jayhawks' rim protection. No. 3 seed UCLA The cure to all of the Wildcats' recent offensive ills will be found by facing the Bruins.

South Region | FedEx Forum, Memphis, Tenn. This is only the fourth time a 7-seed has been favored against a 3-seed.

For college basketball fans, it's the most wonderful time of the year: March Madness. Add the fact that Butler's Chris Holtmann could coach circles around North Carolina's Roy Williams, and this shapes up as another close call for the Tar Heels.
