The first weekend of the 2024 NCAA Tournament is over — now, how about another round (or two)?

The first and second rounds of March Madness, as predictably maddening as they were, have nonetheless whittled the initial 68-team field down to 16. Despite some massive upsets over the course of the opening weekend such as Yale over Auburn and Oakland over Kentucky, each of the four 1 and 2 seeds from each region advanced to the Sweet 16. Indeed, only two of the 16 remaining teams are seeded lower than fifth: 6 seed Clemson and 11 seed NC State.

Speaking of the Tigers, they'll tip off the second weekend of play with a matchup vs. 2 seed Arizona, followed shortly after by 1 seed, defending national champion UConn against 5 seed San Diego State: a rematch of last year's national championship game.

Following the conclusion of those games, 1 seed North Carolina — led by double-double machine Armando Bacot Jr. — should be the toughest challenge yet for 4 seed Alabama and its nation-leading offense. The last game of the night will be a battle of Midwestern teams as 2 seed Iowa State takes on 3 seed Illinois to round out Thursday's schedule of Sweet 16 games.
