NCAA Tournament: Elite Eight Open Thread

New, 24 comments

Iowa State's run is over, but there's still basketball to be played.

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Even though the Cyclones lost to Virginia last night, the NCAA Tournament rolls on today as the Elite Eight kicks off with a couple 1- vs 2-seed matchups.

The games today feature the remaining two Big 12 teams, Kansas and Oklahoma, as both gun for a Final Four berth. If OU and KU win, they'll square off for the third time this season in what should be another wildly entertaining game. As you probably remember, the first time those teams played this year, it was that incredible 3OT game in Allen Fieldhouse where Buddy Hield went off for 46 points, but the Jayhawks pulled off the W.

The action kicks off in just a few minutes on CBS!
