If you don’t have time the next two nights to watch all eight games of the Sweet 16, here are the three you want to try to rearrange your schedule to see.
Last weekend, Wichita State tipped off against Kansas in a highly-anticipated game. When the buzzer sounded, Fred VanVleet and the Shockers were flawless in victory over the Jayhawks.
Meanwhile, Butler took the Irish into overtime and if it wasn’t for Pat Connaughton’s block at the end of regulation, the Irish would be back in South Bend.
On Thursday night, the two teams will face off for a chance to advance.
Wichita State and the Kansas Jayhawks had not met since 1993, in what was once a regularly-scheduled match-up.
No. 2-seeded Kansas probably wished it stayed that way after a 78-65 loss to the seven-seeded Shockers at CenturyLink Center Sunday night.
Tekele Cotton’s hot shooting night and another consistent performance from Fred VanVleet paced the Shockers to their sixth NCAA tournament regional semifinal round in school history.
