Top Matchups to Watch

The Heavyweights—Michigan vs. Kansas

This one is going to be all about the guard play, with both Michigan and Kansas boasting terrific backcourt options that will be huge threats here.

Trey Burke and junior Tim Hardaway Jr. have been superb for Michigan all season long, while Ben McLemore will be a true danger man to watch for the Jayhawks—even if his postseason performances haven't been all that strong so far.

Michigan is playing some terrific basketball at the moment and will seemingly be a tough opponent here for the No. 1 seed Jayhawks. Kansas has been strong all season, but against the athletic and dominant Wolverines, it's hard to see them getting through this one unscathed.

Prediction: Michigan 83, Kansas 81


The Cinderellas—La Salle vs. Wichita State

Few would have predicted at the start of the tournament that La Salle would be playing Wichita State in the Sweet 16, but here they are. After stunning upsets over several big seeds, both teams will be looking to extend their Cinderella run with an incredible Elite Eight berth.

The Shockers have multiple scoring threats both inside and outside (as shown against Gonzaga) and appear to have too much momentum here to be stopped by the Explorers, who just don't have the offense required to keep pace in this one.

Look for Wichita State to blow this one open early and for that lead to keep their Cinderella story alive for at least one more game.

Prediction: La Salle 77, Wichita State 67
