A complete look at Thursday and Friday's games.

The Maryland men's basketball team is in the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2003 after beating Hawaii. The Terps will take on Kansas on Thursday on the first day of games in Louisville. They'll play following the conclusion of Villanova-Miami, which starts at 7:10 p.m., so smart money is on Maryland playing at around 9:30 or 9:45.

Kansas is the tournament's No. 1 overall seed, and will be as tough a matchup as the Terps have faced all season. Perry Ellis and Wayne Seldon headline the Big 12 champions, who only lost four games all season. The winner of Maryland-Kansas will face the winner of Villanova-Miami in the Elite Eight on Saturday, as the South and the West regions both play Thursday. Friday follows the same schedule as Thursday, with the East and the Midwest regions playing their Sweet 16 games. Here's a look at the full schedule:
