2017 NCAA Tournament “Sweet Sixteen” - Day 2: Schedule, TV Listings & Open Thread

#2 Kentucky will hope to avenge a regular season loss to #3 UCLA on Friday night in Memphis.

NCAA Basketball: UCLA at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

Day 1 of the “Sweet Sixteen” more than lived up to the hype, as three of the four games were decided by a combined 6 points overall (#1 Kansas’ blowout win over #4 Purdue) and a #11 Xavier team kept their Cinderella hopes for a “Final Four” alive with a stunning win over #2 Arizona. With the field now half-set for “Elite Eight”, it’s safe to expect only more of the unexpected from Friday’s slate of games.

Another day of the NCAA Tournament also means another round in our BTD Yahoo! Tournament Pick ‘Em Bracket Pool, which has seen a large amount of reshuffling on the leaderboard over the past few days. The “Top 5” can be found below:

T-1. The_Coach - “The_Coach” (56 points)

T-1. Jacob - “Jacob’s Bold” (56 points)

3. Dayo - “Uncle Drew gets buckets” (55 points)

4. Randy Duncan - “Randy Duncan’s one” (52 points)

5. Manchu8688 - “Manchu8688’s Amazing” (51 points)

Let the madness continue!
