Friday, 9:45 p.m. ET, Atlanta

The Wildcats have just two losses on the season — one of them to Indiana. The Hoosiers hit a shot at the buzzer in their Dec. 10 showdown to give Kentucky its only taste of defeat until the SEC title game. Indiana's bid for a second upset makes this one of the most compelling games of the tournament so far. (Pictured: Darius Miller of Kentucky, left, and Christian Watford of Indiana)

Thursday, 10:17 p.m. ET, Phoenix

One of the most intriguing games on the slate, Big East bad boys Marquette bring a tenacious attitude to the court every time out and have the look of a Final Four contender. Perhaps no team has looked better than Florida, which has won its two games by a total of 60 points. (Pictured: Junior Cadougan of Marquette, left, and Kenny Boynton of Florida)

Thursday, 7:47 p.m. ET, Phoenix

The Spartans were the last team to get a No. 1 seed after beating Ohio State for the Big Ten tournament title and struggled to fight off No. 9 seed Saint Louis in their third-round game. Louisville, meanwhile, won the Big East tournament and six games in a row overall. Both teams might be peaking at the right time.

Thursday, 7:15 p.m. ET, Boston

After a scare in round one, Syracuse bounced back with a rout of Kansas State in round two. They are without star big man Fab Melo, who was ruled ineligible before the tournament, and that figures to haunt them at some point. Consistently solid Wisconsin looks to exploit the weakness and reach just its second Elite Eight in the Bo Ryan era. (Pictured: Dion Waiters of Syracuse, left, and Jordan Taylor of Wisconsin)

Thursday, 9:45 p.m. ET, Boston

Two of the four Ohio teams in the Sweet 16 meet with much more than bragging rights at stake. The Buckeyes have looked sharp in both rounds and Big East tournament finalist Cincinnati has won six of its last seven, beating teams like Syracuse, Marquette and Florida State in the process.  (Pictured: Jared Sullinger of Ohio State, left, and Yancy Gates of Cincinnati)

Friday, 10:17 p.m. ET, St. Louis

The Jayhawks looked beatable in their third-round affair against Purdue. The Boilermakers led for almost the first 37 minutes before Kansas finally caught up, then ended the game on a 6-0 run to win. North Carolina State seems ready to play the role of giant-killer. The Wolfpack beat two higher seeds — No. 3 Georgetown and No. 6 San Diego State — to get here.

Friday, 7:15 p.m. ET, Atlanta

Since being down 12 early in their opener against No. 14 South Dakota State, Baylor has outscored opponents by 37 points and will enter this game as the favorite. The Musketeers, meanwhile, benefited from No. 2 seed Duke's stunning loss, making No. 15 Lehigh their third-round opponent. Xavier still needed to rally from a 15-point deficit to win.

Friday, 7:47 p.m. ET, St. Louis

You know it's a good slate when a No. 1 seed is playing in possibly the worst game. On the one hand, injuries to Kendall Marshall and John Henson could make the game less exciting. On the other, it could just help keep it close. The surprise Bobcats squad has already taken out teams from the Big Ten and Big East and may have the juice to add North Carolina to the resume.
