Today’s action should be the best of the tournament so far. Not only do today’s eight games feature three Pac-12 teams, but every match up today features a one, two, or three seed.

Louisville and Michigan will get things going this morning on CBS and will be followed by a game between Kentucky and Wichita State which should interest all Bruin fans because the winner of that game will play the winner of tonight’s UCLA game in the Sweet 16 next weekend.

This afternoon will feature back-to-back games with number one seeds. First up is Kansas and that is followed by North Carolina.

Then, it’s the Pac-12’s time as three of the final four games today will feature teams from the conference. Oregon starts first when the play Rhode Island with Southern Cal soon thereafter.

The final two games will have Duke versus South Carolina and UCLA versus Cincinnati.

Overall, it should be a great day of college basketball. Here’s the full schedule:
