Two teams no one expected to advance are featured in this compelling matchup. The Ole Miss Rebels won in stunning fashion when they toppled fifth-seeded Wisconsin by 11 points. 

Even more shocking than that result is the run by the 13th-seeded La Salle Explorers, who fought their way out of the first round of the tournament to face the fourth-seeded Kansas State Wildcats. They won narrowly over the Wildcats to advance to face the Rebels in the round of 32.

Which of these low-seeded teams will find themselves in the Sweet 16? Regardless of who advances, this game has all the makings of an instant classic!
