So how bout that thrilling West Virginia-Kentucky game, huh? Calipari's squad of Monstars smoked the Mountaineers, 78-39, on Thursday night, pushing them one step closer to a perfect season. With Notre Dame cruising by Wichita State and Wisconsin and Arizona pulling out tight wins, half of the Elite Eight has been set.
The other half will be set on Friday night. The first two games feature a pair of teams that nobody thought would still be around by now. Most folks didn't think UCLA deserved to even be in this tournament, but here they are playing second-seeded Gonzaga. And everybody had Louisville getting upset in the second round, but they'll be into the Elite Eight if they can get by NC State.
Then there's No. 1 seed Duke trying to avoid their annual early exit as well as Michigan State hoping to keep the Tom Izzo magic going.
Here's the schedule. You can watch all of them online at March Madness Live.
