2012 NCAA Tournament Bracket Update: Sunday Results Have Sweet 16 Set

After an eventful first four days of the 2012 NCAA Tournament, the Sweet 16 is finally set, and I'm sure it looks nothing like the bracket you filled out. Here are all of the matchups that will kick off the second weekend of the tournament next weekend.

The big upset on Sunday was No. 11 seed N.C. State defeating No. 3 seed Georgetown. The Wolfpack will advance on to face the No. 2 seed Kansas Jayhawks in the round of 16. The top part of the Midwest regional features the highest remaining seed in No. 13 Ohio, which will face the region's top seed North Carolina later this week.

The East region is a little bit more chalk, with Cincinnati's upset of Florida State the only thing from preventing a 1-2-3-4 sweet sixteen. The Bearcats will face No. 2 seed Ohio State in the next round, while No. 1 seed Syracuse will face No. 4 seed Wisconsin.

The West region also has only one team that is not one of the top four of the region. No. 7 seed Florida moved on and will face No. 3 seed Marquette while No. 1 seed Michigan State gets No. 4 seed Louisville.

The South region faces a pretty juicy rematch as the tournament's top overall seed Kentucky will face No. 4 seed Indiana, a team that has already beaten them once this year. Meanwhile No. 3 seed will face No. 10 seed Xavier to complete the field of sixteen.
