2013 NCAA Tournament schedule: 3rd round kicks off Saturday

USA TODAY Sports

Half of the field for the Sweet 16 will be set by the end of Saturday.

The dust has settled on the second round of the NCAA Tournament and, before anyone can get a breather, the third round begins on Saturday.

Saturday features a healthy amount of double-digit seeds as top seeds fell left and right on Thursday. The No. 14 Harvard Crimson continue their tournament run against the No. 6 Arizona Wildcats, the No. 12 Oregon Ducks will try to continue to prove they were under-seeded as they take on the No. 4 Saint Louis Billikens and the No. 12 California Golden Bears take on the No. 4 Syracuse Orange, who had one of the more lopsided victories in the second round.

Elsewhere, two top seeds are in action as the No. 1 Gonzaga Bulldogs will try to justify their top seeding with a win over the No. 9 Wichita State Shockers after nearly falling to the No. 16 Southern Jaguars. The No. 1 Louisville Cardinals take on the No. 8 Colorado State Rams.
