The Sweet Sixteen round of the 2011 NCAA Tournament features three ACC teams, two SEC squads, and a CAA stunner spread across Thursday and Friday. Florida and Duke are in action Thursday night, while UNC and Kentucky attempt to reach the Elite Eight before FSU and VCU square off against each other on Friday.
That Thursday lineup is going to hit the ground running, with Kemba Walker and Jimmer Fredette (featuring Gus Johnson!) opening the action. Duke-Arizona is likely to feature a ludicrous ending of some sort, based on recent returns, and though you'll want to look away from the first half of Wisconsin-Butler, we're talking about a Butler game called by Gus Johnson.
Friday isn't quite the national event, but features four teams from Southeastern conferences. And Richmond is technically a Southeastern school, so there's an evening's worth of rooting interests. Can UNC eradicate one of the last two Big East teams still in it? Can Kentucky upset Ohio State? FSU vs. VCU: who's upsettier?
