2017 NCAA Tournament: Second Round Saturday Open Thread

Half the teams are gone, who will make the Sweet 16?

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-First Round-Minnesota vs Middle Tennessee State James Lang-USA TODAY Sports

Only two upsets (by seeding) occured on Thursday, but I bet Florida State will have their hands full with Xavier; ditto Butler with Middle Tennessee.

But West Virginia and Notre Dame will get us started, and we’ll wrap up with Iowa State and Purdue.

Enjoy the games!
