After a week of literal madness, the field of 68 has dwindled to just 16 still vying for the national championship. Four of those teams have already punched their tickets to the Elite Eight, while the others will face off today, Friday, March 27. Kicking off Day 2 of the Sweet 16 is No. 2 Gonzaga vs. No. 11 UCLA.
The Zags punched their ticket to the dance with an automatic bid for winning the West Coast Conference tournament. The Bulldogs opened up NCAA Tournament play with a win over No. 15 North Dakota State in the round of 64. Gonzaga then knocked off No. 7 Iowa, 87-68, to move on to the Sweet 16.
The Zags will go head-to-head against UCLA.
The Bruins joined the dance floor after receiving a selection committee bid. Although UCLA slid by in the round of 64 with a close win, 60-59, over SMU, the Bruins handily beat No. 14 UAB, 92-75, to advance to the Sweet 16. Under the direction of Steve Alford, UCLA is heading into the next round posting a record of 22-13 (11-7).
