All Times Listed are EST


 
12:10 PM --   CBS -- Buffalo, New York#4 West Virginia Jevon Carter
vs.#5 Notre Dame #78 V.J. Beachem, Steve Vasturia, Bonzie Colson, Matt Ryan
 
A slow start to the day from a NBA scouting perspective, this will be a significant contrast of styles pitting Notre Dame's patient and highly efficient offense against West Virginia's press.
 
V.J. Beachem had one of his worst games of the season in Notre Dame's narrow win over Princeton, scoring just 2 points on 1-9 shooting, and will need to do a lot more than that to help the Irish advance to the Sweet 16. Beachem hasnt taken the next step in his development after a promising junior season, looking passive and detached while seeing his 3-point percentages fall from 44% to 37%, and will certainly want to finish his college career on a stronger note.
 
2:40 PM CBS Buffalo, New York#1 Villanova #40 Josh Hart, #57 Mikal Bridges, Kris Jenkins, Jalen Brunson
vs#8 Wisconsin #71 Nigel Hayes, #80 Ethan Happ, Vitto Brown, Bronson Koenig
 
Two of the slowest paced teams in high major basketball compete in a game full of veteran players and fringe NBA prospects. All-American Josh Hart will see a different look defensively than usual in the form of Nigel Hayes, whose strong frame and 7-3 wingspan will create a unique matchup. Hayes offensive game hasnt shown a great deal of progress since his very promising freshman and sophomore seasons, so it will be interesting to see if he can find ways to score against Villanova's stout defense.
 
5:15 PM CBS Salt Lake City, Utah #1 Gonzaga #25 Zach Collins, #50 Nigel Williams-Goss, Johnathan Williams, Killian Tillie, Jordan Mathews, Josh Perkins, Przemek Karnowski
vs.#8 Northwestern Vic Law, Bryant McIntosh
 
Gonzaga survived a first half scare from South Dakota State to advance comfortably, behind one of their worst offensive performances of the season. The tremendous size they boast throughout their lineup will be a major advantage against Northwestern, who looked very uninspiring defensively in the first round against Vanderbilt. Nigel Williams-Goss will have to play much better than he did on Thursday, as South Dakota State really exposed his inability to stretch the floor by packing in the paint. Considering his average athleticism, this is a major sticking point for NBA scouts, and something theyll want to pay close attention to. Zach Collins had some nice moments in the first round stepping out on the perimeter defensively, and it will be interesting to see how hes able to perform in a big game.
 
6:10 PM TNT Orlando, Florida#3 Florida State #9 Jonathan Isaac, #59 Dwayne Bacon, Xavier Rathan-Mayes
vs.#11 Xavier Trevon Bluiett
 
Jonathan Isaac shook off the minor slump hes been in to produce one of his most complete games at the college level in a close win over Florida Gulf Coast, contributing 17 points, 10 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 blocks and 2 steals. Isaac looked aggressive exploiting the significant matchup advantages he enjoyed operating at both the power forward and center positions, and played with the type of energy and intensity scouts want to see from him on a more regular basis. Isaac will be at a significant size advantage once again in this game, as he towers over both forwards Malcolm Bernard and Trevon Blueitt, which should make for a very interesting setting.
 
7:10 PM TBS Milwaukee, Wisconsin#4 Butler Kalen Martin, Kamar Baldwin
vs.#12 Middle Tennessee State
              
7:45 PM CBS Salt Lake City, Utah#2 Arizona #7 Lauri Markkanen, #66 Kobi Simmons, #72 Allonzo Trier, #82 Rawle Alkins, Dusan Ristic, Chance Comanche, Kadeem Allen
vs.#7 Saint Marys Jock Landale
 
One of the most attractive games of the day, NBA scouts want to see how Arizona's significant advantage physically translates against a highly experienced, well coached and skilled Saint Marys team. Perhaps the most interesting matchup will be at the power forward position, where scrappy Aussie Dane Pineau will be tasked with slowing down 7-footer Lauri Markkanen and his unlimited shooting range. Arizona's guards, Kadeem Allen and Allonzo Trier will tower over their WCC counterparts, but will have to be smart about how they choose to attack them. Arizona small forward Rawle Alkins is coming off the best game of his career at the college level.  He scored 20 points on 8/8 shooting while tallying 5 assists, 4 rebounds and 0 turnovers in Arizona's First Round win.
 
8:40 PM TNT Orlando, Florida#4 Florida #47 Devin Robinson, Kasey Hill, Kevaughn Allen
vs.         #5 Virginia London Perrantes, Kyle Guy, Mamadi Diakite
 
Devin Robinson had perhaps the best game of his college career on Thursday against East Tennessee State, scoring 24 points and 7 rebounds on 10/17 shooting. He was tremendous in the open floor, attacking closeouts, and even knocking down spot-up 3-pointers, which was a major factor in Florida's 15-point win. He will again have a major size and athletic advantage matching up with Virginia's undersized PF duo of Devon Hall and Marial Shayok, and scouts will want to see if hes turning the corner and is able to string together strong back to back games. Virginia's defense is ranked #2 in the country according to KenPom, so this will be a much more significant test.
 
9:40 PM TBS Milwaukee, Wisconsin#4 Purdue #33 Caleb Swanigan, #86 Vince Edwards, Isaac Haas
vs.#5 Iowa State #49 Monte Morris, Matt Thomas, Deonte Burton
 
While the day starts off somewhat slowly, it ends with some outstanding matchups, capped off with Purdue-Iowa State. This is a real contrast of styles, between an undersized and perimeter oriented Iowa State team and a gigantic Purdue team that always has a significant advantage inside. Caleb Swanigan was awesome against a similarly undersized Vermont team in the first round, particularly in the second half where he played with incredible energy and urgency. Iowa State has one of the best point guards in college basketball at the helm in Monte Morris, and scouts will want to see how he navigates playing in perhaps the biggest game of his college career. How much of the twin-tower look of Swanigan and Isaac Haas Matt Painter decides to utilize will be a very interesting storyline to track, as Iowa State doesnt have much in the way of quality frontcourt depth.
