NCAA Tournament Schedule 2011: Duke, UConn, BYU Among Sweet Sixteen Teams In Action Thursday

While we don't yet have TV times and channels for the four 2011 NCAA Tournament Sweet Sixteen games to be played on Thursday, we do know which eight teams will be in action after Arizona's late victory against Texas. UConn's Kemba Walker, BYU's Jimmer Fredette, and Duke stars Nolan Smith and Kyrie Irving will be in action, making this possibly the most star-packed day of college basketball this season. 

Especially once you recall the many gangly caucasians participating in Butler-Wisconsin! March Madness. Can't miss it.

If the scheduling folks still want to try and deliver staggered game start times, we can expect action to begin early in the evening. Here are the four matchups you can look forward to seeing on Thursday night:

Southeast Region, New Orleans

No. 8 Butler Bulldogs vs. No. 4 Wisconsin Badgers

No. 3 BYU Cougars vs. No. 2 Florida Gators

West Region, Anaheim

No. 2 San Diego St. Aztecs vs. No. 3 Connecticut Huskies

No. 1 Duke Blue Devils vs. No. 5 Arizona Wildcats
