NCAA Tournament 2011 Bracket Update: Sweet 16 Set

The field for the Sweet 16 is now set, so here’s your March Madness bracket update following Sunday’s late games.

Arizona narrowly defeated Texas, 70-69. Two No. 11 seeds, VCU and Marquette, knocked off two No. 3 seeds in Purdue and Syracuse, respectively, and No. 10 Florida State shocked No. 2 Notre Dame. (This tournament hasn’t been especially kind to top Big East seeds so far, with Pitt, Notre Dame, Syracuse and Louisville all dropping out early.) No. 1 Kansas advanced against No. 9 Illinois.

Here, then, are the Sweet 16:

No. 1 Ohio State vs. No. 4 Kentucky, March 25 at 9:45 PM
No. 2 North Carolina vs. No. 11 Marquette, March 25 at 7:15 PM

No. 1 Duke vs. No. 5 Arizona, March 24 at 9:45 PM
No. 2 San Diego State vs. No. 3 UConn, March 24 at 7:15 PM

No. 1 Kansas vs. No. 12 Richmond, March 25 at 7:27 PM
No. 10 Florida State vs. No. 11 VCU, March 25 at 9:57 PM

No. 8 Butler vs. No. 4 Wisconsin, March 24 at 9:57 PM
No. 2 Florida vs. No. 3 BYU, March 24 at 7:27 PM
