NCAA Tournament Elite Eight Saturday Open Thread

The non-ACC side of the draw.

West: #1 Oregon vs #2 Oklahoma, 6:09 PM, CBS

South: #1 Kansas vs #2 Villanova, 8:49 PM, CBS

With one side of the Final Four already a lock for two ACC teams, the Big 12 has a shot at owning the other side of the national semifinals. In the West Oregon faces Buddy Hield and Oklahoma. Oregon is actually favored by 1.5 after the Sooners were installed as a one point favorite.

So far in the tournament, three teams have won by double digits in their first three games. UNC is one of them and the other two are in the South Regional Final. Kansas is favored by 2 to advance to the Final Four.

Give me Oklahoma and Kansas setting up what could be an epic third battle between those two teams.
