Only 16 teams left!

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-West Regional Practice Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: One half of the Elite Eight

WHAT: The third round of the NCAA tournament

WHEN: 11:10am (CST) straight on through to the early am hours, Monday

WHERE: Atlanta, GA, and Los Angeles, CA

HOW: CBS, TBS

After a three day break, tournament action is back. Yes, I know there’s a Mavericks game tonight against the Utah Jazz, but we wanted to give you options if you’re worn out by this point in the season.

With only four games tonight, it’s a lot easier to focus on. There’s the Loyola (Chi) vs. Nevada game, which is a battle of the underdogs. Then there’s Texas A&M against Michigan, where Robert Williams is making a late play for attention and considering how many NCAA stars are already at home, he just might get it (man he looked good last weekend). Later in the evening, there’s Kentucky against Kansas State. It should be a breeze for the talented Kentucky team and yet KSU is still hanging around for a reason. Kentucky has a lot of NCAA prospects though, so keep a close eye. The night cap is Florida State versus Gonzaga, which I’d only watch if I were a hard core college fan. I am not, so I don’t rightly care.

As always, be good to one another in the comments!
