Finally it's time for college basketball again, even if the Terrapins don't get to take part. It's the Sweet Sixteen, with two expected matchups and two not-so-expected matchups taking place Thursday.
As always, you can stream the games live online right here, if you're out and about or just want some multi-screen action (there will be two games on at a time for some stretches).
On to the schedule!
7:15 p.m. ET, CBS
No. 11 Dayton vs. No. 10 Stanford
It's not often you see two double-digit teams square off in the Tournament (each team has to pull off at least two upsets first), but here we are. Dayton pulled off dramatic upset victories over Ohio State and Syracuse to be here, firmly cementing their candidacy as this year's March Madness darling, while Stanford defeated New Mexico and Kansas in their first two games.
7:47 p.m. ET, TBS
No. 6 Baylor vs. No. 2 Wisconsin
Baylor is our last team of the day who has had to pull off an upset, demolishing Creighton in their second game after an easy win over former conference rival Nebraska in their first. The Bears defeated the favored Bluejays (a Final Four pick of yours truly) by 30 points after defeating the Cornhuskers by 14, and have looked like one of the hotter teams in the tournament. The Badgers, meanwhile, defeated local American by 40 in their first game, and dispatched of Oregon by eight points last time out.
9:45 p.m. ET, CBS
No. 4 UCLA vs. No. 1 Florida
The last two games of the evening are of the expect "four-seed against one-seed" variety, with the Bruins taking on a Florida team that has not lost since early December. UCLA won both of their first two tournament games (against Tulsa and Stephen F. Austin) by double digits, as did Florida (Albany and Pittsburgh).
10:17 p.m. ET, TBS
No. 4 San Diego State vs. No. 1 Arizona
This one is more of a regional battle, as the Aztecs look to continue the success of mid-major teams in this tournament against higher-profile competition. The Mountain West regular season champs survived a first-round scare against New Mexico State before easily handling North Dakota State, while Arizona had a first-round scare of their own against Weber State before blowing out Gonzaga.
Take to the comments and talk some hoops, you all. You've earned it.
