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 nightcap on Day 2 of the Sweet 16 is No. 3 Oklahoma vs. No. 7 Michigan State.
Oklahoma is one of the seven Big 12 teams that had the chance to dance in this year’s NCAA Tournament. After receiving a selection committee bid, the Sooners defeated No. 14 Albany in the Round of 64. Oklahoma faced the known sleeper team – Dayton – and put them to rest in the next round as they beat the Flyers, 72-66. With the win, the Sooners not only move on to the Sweet 16, but also head coach Lon Kruger becomes the first coach in NCAA history to win a tournament game with five different teams – Oklahoma, Kansas State, Florida, Illinois and UNLV – four of which advanced to the Sweet 16.
Michigan State Head Coach Tom Izzo knows the recipe to a successful postseason and so far he has showcased that. After finishing out the regular season as runners-up in the Big Ten Conference Tournament, the Spartans routed No. 10 Georgia in the round of 64 and then delivered an upset to No. 2 Virginia. With the win over the Cavaliers, Michigan State moves on to its 13th Sweet 16 appearance in the past 18 seasons.
