Kansas-Oregon highlights the Saturday night action.
As the 2017 NCAA Tournament is whittled down to the Elite Eight, we unfortunately get fewer games each day. However, the two games on Saturday night as part of the first set of four games looks like they will not disappoint.
Gonzaga vs. Xavier, 6:09 p.m. ET (TBS)
The new Cinderella team of March, the No. 11 Xavier Musketeers, has a tough task of them, with the No. 1 Gonzaga Bulldogs waiting in the wings. Xavier gave us one of the biggest and most unexpected upsets of the tournament on Thursday night, by beating the No. 2 Arizona Wildcats 73-71. The Musketeers have defeated a higher seed in all three of their games — could Gonzaga be next?
Kansas vs. Oregon, 8:49 p.m. ET (TBS)
The No. 1 Kansas Jayhawks have been cruising through the entire tournament so far. The Jayhawks defeated No. 16 UC Davis 100-62, then beat the No. 9 Michigan State Spartans 90-70, followed by this latest 32-point victory over Purdue. The last time that any team scored more than 90 points in its first three games of the NCAA Tournament was UConn in 1995. The No. 3 Ducks defeated No. 7 Michigan in the Sweet 16, winning 69-68.
