NCAA Tournament Elite Eight Open Thread: Saturday

2 of the 4 Final Four teams will be known after tonight. So let's chat about these games!

LThe Elite Eight field has been set! After some exciting games as well as blowouts (West Virginia) there are 8 teams to decide who's going to the Final Four. There are no more Big 12 teams in the tournament and most people's brackets are busted so now it's time to enjoy some good basketball!

Wisconsin vs. Arizona

The Badgers beat North Carolina in the Sweet Sixteen in one of the best games of the round. Although they have gotten to this point, Wisconsin hasn't looked like the number one seed. Arizona beat Xavier in another good game to get here. This game will come down to if the Wisconsin bigs can impose their will or if Arizona can outrun, and out score, the Badgers.



Kentucky vs. Notre Dame

Notre Dame is the latest team that people think can beat the undefeated Wildcats. They have as good a shot as any though. Kentucky beat the crap out of West Virginia and the Big 12's dreams last time out. Notre Dame shot themselves into this round in their victory over the Shockers of Wichita State. They will need to continue that hot shooting if they want to have a chance to beat then number 1 seeded Wildcats.



Let's basketball!
