A diverse Sweet 16 with entertaining matchups lingers as a promise to end our NCAA tournament withdrawals. After the intensity of the second and third rounds rattled our senses for four straight days, a four-day layoff from the action passes painstakingly slow.

This Sweet 16 will be worth the wait. There are top matchups and Cinderellas. For instance, three games are chalk with a No. 1 seed battling a No. 4 seed. That is it for chalk matchups, however. 

There are three double-digit seeds along with teams seeded at No. 6, No. 7 and No. 8 all playing in this round. According to VegasInsider.com, there also isn't one game with a spread larger than six points. It is going to be a fun round.

Have a look at the schedule and my picks, and then I'll get in depth on a few of my prognostications.
