The 2017 Sweet Sixteen is in place. Three of the Four top seeds will advance. 2016 National Champions Villanova will be sitting at home in Philadelphia instead of New York City, site of the East Semi and finals.
The Wisconsin Badgers upset the top seed Wildcats at Buffalo, New York over the weekend.
The Duke Blue Devils were at a disadvantage playing in Greenville, South Carolina.
The result has the Gamecocks going to the Sweet 16 for the first time in quite some time.
The East Region looks more like a slew of premier football institutes with South Carolina, Florida, Baylor and Wisconsin all invading the Big Apple.
The West has Gonzaga, Arizona, West Virginia and Xavier. West Regional games will take place in San Jose, California and they get started on Thursday.
Mick Cronin and the Xavier Musketeers are the Cinderella story in the bracket. The Musketeers took down Maryland and a talented Florida State team in the first two rounds.
Xavier is also without their best player Edmond Sumner, who is out for the rest of the season with a severe knee injury. Trevon Blueitt is having his time in the spotlight.
Xavier will take on Arizona, who is the favorite in the contest. However, the Musketeers are a gritty Big East team, used to playing the underdog role.
Xavier will not be intimidated; they beat Florida State in Orlando. The one seed Gonzaga Bulldogs will have their hands full with a very tough West Virginia Mountaineers team.
Head Coach Bob Huggins has West Virginia playing their best basketball of the season.
Bovada. Lv list Xavier at +25,000 to win the 2017 NCAA Tournament, West Virginia at +2,800, Arizona +1,800, and Gonzaga+900.
The storyline of the 2017 March Madness Basketball Tournament this past weekend was the Atlantic Coast Conference.
All season we listened to the analyst on various Television, as well as radio shows, talk about how great the ACC is.
However, the North Carolina Tar Heels are the only team from the conference left in the NCAA Tournament. Making matter worse it took a late surge for the Tar Heels to get past Arkansas to advance.
The Big Ten Conference has three teams left, Xavier and Butler are the only teams from the Big East left and the SEC “FLEXED THEIR MUSCLE” with Kentucky, South Carolina and Florida representing the Football first Conference.
Baylor, Kansas, and West Virginia showed the nation how great the Big Twelve Conference is playing basketball.
Charliessports.com believes the Sweet Sixteen will be just an exciting to fans like the past weekend.
