The NCAA men's basketball tournament is down to its final 16 teams. Two top seeds remain in Alabama and Houston. However, there is more uncertainty than ever before.
The Sweet 16 will tip off on Thursday night. The slate will include three teams that are seeded No. 7 or higher in the field. No. 8 Arkansas is coming off a major upset over top-ranked Kansas in the second round. Meanwhile, No. 9 Florida Atlantic is still dancing after defeating No. 16 Fairleigh Dickinson.
Friday's slate will feature another Cinderella story. No. 15 Princeton is primed to continue its surprising NCAA Tournament run against No. 6 Creighton. The last time Princeton made an Elite Eight appearance was in 1965.
Both Houston and Alabama will be in action Friday. They will draw a pair of No. 5 seeds in San Diego State and Miami, respectively.
