Florida, Arizona, Wisconsin and Dayton have punched their tickets to the Elite Eight. Now four more spots await to be filled as the Sweet 16 concludes on Friday.
The biggest game on an evening full of big games is the matchup between No. 4 Louisville and No. 8 Kentucky. The Louisville and Kentucky rivalry game has gone to new levels since John Calipari came to town, and right now he holds the slight edge between the two coaches. Calipari is 13-12 against Pitino over his coaching career. Louisville is one of the more complete teams out there, but Kentucky just got done doing what no one else could this year when it beat Wichita State in the third round.
No. 1 Virginia faces off against No. 4 Michigan State in the other primo game of the evening. Tom Izzo and the Spartans have been bounced in the Sweet 16 the past two consecutive years. Tony Bennett has only been to the Sweet 16 one other time in his career, back in 2008 when he was coaching the Washington State Cougars.
