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. The second game on Day 2 of the Sweet 16 is No. 4 Louisville vs. No. 8 NC State.
Two years removed from winning the national championship and one from a Sweet 16 appearance that ended with a 74-69 loss to Kentucky, the Cardinals are back at it again. Under the direction of hall of fame coach Rick Pitino, Louisville knocked off No. 13 UC Irvine and No. 5 Northern Iowa to advance to its fifth-straight Sweet 16 – a program record. The Cardinals will face-off against ACC foe No. 8 NC State.
Although No. 8 NC State had an early dismissal in last year’s tournament with an overtime loss to Saint Louis in the round of 64, the Wolfpack held strong this season and earned a bid to the dance as a committee-selected team. In the round of 64, NC State routed No. 9 LSU and then pulled an upset over No. 1 Villanova to keep their season alive for another week.
