March Madness 2016 schedule: Elite Eight games for Saturday

Get ready for two high-scoring games.

Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

And then there were eight. The 2016 NCAA Tournament's Elite Eight tips off on Saturday, with four teams -- the two best in the South and in the West -- meet for the right to go to the Final Four in Houston.

The South regional final features No. 1 Kansas and No. 2 Villanova, which are playing like two of the best teams in the country right now, and which put on clinics in their Sweet Sixteen games. Villanova was especially impressive against Miami in the Sweet 16. The Wildcats put up an other-worldly 1.56 points per possession, and 92 total points, against the Hurricanes, continuing the offensive dominance they showed in an 87-point outing against Iowa in the Round of 32.

Meanwhile, Kansas cruised to a win over talented Maryland behind a strong second half on offense. Both teams have had complete control of all three of their games so far, and KenPom.com predicts a very even game, giving both teams a 50 percent chance to win.

Two high-flying offenses meet out West, as well. No. 1 Oregon used a brilliant offensive performance -- and a shot that made Mike Krzyzewski angry -- to beat Duke, while No. 2 Oklahoma caught fire from beyond the three-point arc to blow out Texas A&M. If you like points, Saturday's games are for you.
