There were no shortage of storylines in the second round. Whether it be quite a few of the national championship contenders – Florida, Louisville and Kansas immediately come to mind – all getting a serious test, the eight upsets or the five games that went into overtime, there was plenty to keep college hoops fans occupied with.

On Saturday, the third round will begin. With eight games on the slate, half of this year's Sweet 16 will be determined. Here is an updated look at the bracket through the second round:

There are plenty of intriguing games to keep an eye on Saturday. The first one of the day is between top-seeded Florida and No. 9 Pittsburgh, which is coming off an dominating performance over Colorado. If the Gators show up without much energy like they did in the second round, the Panthers could pull the upset.

Other key games to keep an eye on include Louisville taking on Saint Louis, Oregon looking to upset No. 2 Wisconsin, and North Dakota State aiming to continue its Cinderella run with a win over San Diego State.
