After three excruciating days off, the NCAA Tournament is back with the Sweet 16 on Thursday.

It seems like forever ago since the NCAA Tournament games were going, but luckily the longest three days of the year are over as the Sweet 16 gets underway on Thursday.

There are some very familiar faces in the tournament, but just as the second and third rounds always do, there are some surprise entries into the field. Three double-digit seeds are playing with the big boys, and Kentucky is in place of Wichita State, the lone No. 1 seed to fall so far.

There are some intriguing matchups on Thursday evening. One double-digit seeded team will fall as No. 11 Dayton and No. 10 Stanford face off in the first game of the evening. No. 4 San Diego State faces No. 1 Arizona for the second time this season. The two teams met earlier in the season with Arizona winning by nine points. San Diego State would go on to win 20-straight games after the loss.

Brackets have been busted and left in burning shambles, but at least an almost full day's worth of work can take place on Thursday. The first half of the Sweet 16 doesn't begin until 4:15 p.m. ET on Thursday, with the remaining four games on Friday. The Elite Eight kicks off on Saturday.

All games can be viewed online via March Madness Live. Westwood One affiliates have radio coverage, and you can view the full television schedule below (all times listed are in Eastern).
