NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Big Dance continues Thursday night with the field of 64 whittled down to the Sweet 16. At the onset of the tournament, 13 teams were represented by Titans players. Now just five schools remain alive: Kentucky, Notre Dame, North Carolina, Oklahoma and Louisville.

There's a similar situation in the East Region. If Louisville (Harry Douglas) beats N.C. State and Oklahoma (Gabe Ikard) overcomes Michigan State, the Cardinals and Sooners will also meet in the Elite Eight.

Worth Noting: Michael Roos may be riding off into the sunset (or driving a golf cart through the back nine), but his Eastern Washington Eagles are Big Sky Champions and sit as the 13-seed in the South Region. They'll play the 4-seed Georgetown Hoyas in the first round. (Update: The Eagles lost to Georgetown 84-74. Sorry Mike.)
