Fresno State is out (sad face) but based on Friday's games of multiple upsets this Saturday has the chance to be very interesting as there are four double-digit seeds out of the 16 teams in action, and that could mean multiple of them going on to the Sweet 16.
The layout kind of stinks because the first two games -- and half of the third game -- have their own window so if there is a clunker we are stuck for a while, so here is hoping for some good games in the early sessions.
Just for fun, here is my order of likelihood of there being a double-digit seed moving on.
1. No. 11 Wichita State over No. 3 Miami
2. No. 12 Yale over No. 4 Duke
3. No. 11 Gonzaga over No. 3 Utah
4. No. 12 Arkansas Little-Rock over No. 4 Iowa State
Have fun and stop by for some Saturday bracket talk.
