The Sweet 16 in Upon Us
By Robert H. Kelly
The first two round of the 2008 NCAA Men's Division 1 Basketball Tournament have been completed. There have been a few upsets but most of the higher seeds advanced to the Sweet 16.
It has been a great tournament so far. Basketball fans have been able to view numerous games on television in additon to being able to watch all the games live (for free) on the CBS Sports website.
I will have my predictions up for the Sweet 16 before the end of the week. All first round games of the Sweet 16 will be played in March 27 (Friday).
Here are the lineups for the four regionals of the Sweet 16.
East Regional in Charlotte, North Carolina
North Carolina (1) vs. Washington State (4) and Lousiville (3) vs. Tennessee (4)
Midwest Regional in Detroit, Michigan
Kansas (1) vs. Villanova (4) and Wisconsin (2) vs. Davidson (10)
South Regional in Houston, Texas
Memphis (1) vs. Michigan State (5) and Stanford (3) vs. Texas (2)
West Regional in Phoenix, Arizona
UCLA (1) vs. Western Kentucky (12) and West Virginia (7) vs. Xavier (3)
I am hoping to have some coverage from the Houston games next weekend. I do not have press credentials for the games but I should be able to get some coverage from Reliant Stadium.
