2016 NCAA Tournament: Elite 8 Sunday Open Thread

A rundown of the Elite 8 games today.

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

If the sun did indeed rise today, which I doubt, there's still two more games to decide this weekend.  Both North Carolina and Virginia appear to have a pretty wide open path to Houston.  Will Syracuse or Notre Dame offer any resistance?

Virginia knocked off Syracuse in their only prior meeting this year by a 73-65 score back on January 24 in Charlottesville.

North Carolina and Notre Dame played twice this year, with each team winning once.  Notre Dame won in South Bend on February 6 by an 80-76 score.  North Carolina returned the favor with a vengeance in the ACC Tournament, taking out the Irish 78-47 on March 11.
