GAME THREAD: NCAA Tournament Round 4, Day 2

The Final Four is calling for the last two teams

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-East Regional-Purdue vs Texas Tech Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: The start of the Elite Eight!

WHAT: The fourth round of the NCAA tournament

WHEN: 1:20 p.m. (CT) and 4:05 p.m. (CT)

WHERE: Boston, MA and Omaha, NE


With Michigan and Loyola (Chi) heading to the Final Four on Saturday night, there are two outstanding tickets waiting to be punched Sunday afternoon. For Mavericks fans, these two games have a much wider array of NBA level talent than yesterdays.

For more on those guys, check out our latest Elite 8 Prospect Watch.

The guy I’ll be watching is Zhaire Smith as he matches up against an elite defender and possible Maverick draft target Mikal Bridges. Smith’s stock is rising, but for now I still suspect he returns to school, but how he fairs against one of the best defenders in the draft could do wonders for his horizon. With Duke and Kansas, there are more guys than I want to list right now, but watch the game.

As always, be good to one another.
