March Madness Bracket Update: After Last-Second Victory Vs. Florida State, VCU Fills Out Elite Eight Field

Here’s an updated look at the NCAA Tournament bracket, reflecting tonight’s Sweet 16 action.

The tournament is now down to the Elite Eight. In the Southeast Region, No. 2 Florida will face No. 8 Butler on Saturday at 4:30. In the West, No. 3 UConn will play No. 5 Arizona at 7:05 Saturday.

In the East region, North Carolina and Kentucky will face one another after those schools’ defeats of Marquette and Ohio State, respectively.

VCU will face Kansas after the Rams pulled off a one-point victory over Florida State after a ragged, mistake-filled overtime period in which both teams were clearly gassed. VCU scored the go-ahead basket with only a few seconds remaining. Bradford Burgess finished with 26 points for VCU, while point guard Joey Rodriguez had 10 assists. The Rams’ unlikely run continues – this is a team that had to play a first-round game, for goodness sakes – but they’ll face a very tough opponent this weekend in the Jayhawks.
