Four Big 12 teams down, and one suffers a devastating injury.
Things could end quickly for the conference this weekend. Suddenly Baylor looks like the best chance for the Big 12 to advance. Kansas is still pretty good, but without Embiid and a top flight PG the Jayhawks are very vulnerable. Iowa State was a sexy pick to advance, but Niang's broken foot may derail the Cyclones' journey.
Pretty straightforward TV schedule, with all the daytime action taking place on CBS. The evening games get split between TNT, TBS, and TruTV. You can still watch the games online here.
Kansas leads off against Stanford. Iowa State tries to carry on without Niang vs North Carolina in the last afternoon game.
Mercer and SF Austin carry the "true" Cinderella slipper, although Stanford and Tennessee also carry double digit seedings.
Wichita State now has my undying loyalty.
Enjoy the madness.
