March Madness eases nearer its culmination with the final set of four Sweet 16 games tonight.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Last night Dayton, Arizona, Wisconsin, and Florida advanced in a set of games that was dull at the beginning and then very good after most of the Eastern time zone called it a night. Those of us that work unbalanced schedules got to see Florida finally dispatch a very game UCLA team with a very late rally and the work of Scottie Wilbekin, while in the other game Nick Johnson scored 12 points in the final three minutes to help Arizona survive SDSU.

Tonight the game getting all the hype, and deservedly so, is the intrastate matchup between Kentucky and Louisville. Blessedly, Bill Raftery is nowhere near that one. Tennessee looks to match Dayton by making the Elite Eight as an 11 seed if they can get by the Wolverines of Michigan in the first set of games.
