After a four-day break from watching basketball (unless you watched the wild Old Dominion buzzer-beater), postseason play continues for the final 16 teams still pursuing a championship banner. Half of the field plays Thursday with the remaining teams rounding out the field Friday.
Thursday's lineup features two one-seeds, a team from Kansas not named Kansas and a team from North Carolina named North Carolina. Ron Baker-led Wichita State faces off against three-seed Notre Dame in what's likely to be a barnyard battle to see which team can advance and potentially test its luck at spoiling perfection. UNC and Wisconsin clash in a game of powerhouses, while Xavier and Arizona dance in sunny California. Oh yeah, and Kentucky plays. Have you heard of them? Didn't think so.
