Sweet Sixteen on DISH TV Schedule | March 28, 2014

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

The Dayton Flyers continued their Cinderella-esque waltz through the tournament bracket yesterday, pulling off a convincing 82-72 win against 10th-ranked Stanford. Wisconsin, Florida and Arizona also advanced.

Headlining today’s Sweet Sixteen play is Kentucky vs. Louisville. The bluegrass state rivals last met in the Final Four two years ago, where the Wildcats prevailed and ultimately went on to secure their eight tournament championship. The Cardinals bounced back in 2013 with a championship victory of their own. This is an old rivalry, some say the best in NCAA basketball, and it’s not always a friendly one.

Here’s the Sweet Sixteen TV schedule for Friday, March 28, 2014.

NCAA Tournament TV Schedule | Friday, March 28, 2014
11 Tennessee Volunteers vs. 2 Michigan Wolverines 7:15 p.m. (ET) CBS
7 Connecticut Huskies vs. 3 Iowa State Cyclones 7:27 p.m. (ET) TBS
8 Kentucky Wildcats vs. 4 Louisville Cardinals 9:45 p.m. (ET) CBS
4 Michigan State Spartans vs. 1 Virginia Cavaliers 9:57 p.m. (ET) TBS
