March Madness 2015: Open thread, TV schedule for Friday's Sweet 16 games

The NCAA tournament field will be pared down to eight by the end of the night. After a chalky Thursday, will any cinderellas emerge from the wacky half of the bracket?

SB Nation 2015 March Madness Bracket

TGIF. The nerves of yesterday's big win over North Carolina should be gone and you can settle into a more relaxing night of basketball action. What kind of game tickles your fancy?

If the West and Midwest regions are a little too chalk for your tastes, how about rooting for a non-traditional underdog such as North Carolina State or UCLA? Both teams feature plenty of former Wisconsin recruits, including Milwaukee Hamilton's own Kevon Looney. The Badger coaching staff also recruiting Abdul-Malik Abu and Kyle Washington fairly hard before they committed to the Wolfpack.

Maybe begrudgingly rooting for conference pride is more your speed, in which case the night cap of Tom Izzo's Michigan State Spartans versus Lon Kruger's Oklahoma Sooners will do just fine. That is, if you like grinders.


As always, you can stream every game live via the NCAA's March Madness Live app.
