North Carolina and Butler will play at 7:09 p.m. ET on Friday, March 24.

After a insane weekend that saw many highly seeded teams fall to upsets, North Carolina managed to stage a comeback to beat Arkansas and keep their March Madness hopes alive.

Note: All times Eastern, some start times approximate.

A common theme of Butler losses was poor shooting on 3s, and they finished 8-of-28 (29 percent).

Johnathan Motley had 18 points, 12 in the second half, for Baylor (27-8), which just couldn't get any offense going.

The Jayhawks are the No. 1 seed in the Midwest Region, which holds its semifinals in Kansas City, Missouri.

There is one goal in mind for the Tar Heels and that's winning the National title.

The Bulldogs haven't really been tested seed-wise, beating a No. 12 and No. 13 so far. "He gets that ball and they clear out one side of the lane, he bangs and he bangs and he turns to his left shoulder and shoots it".

Maye had made 11 3-pointers all season. "Just still a little bruising there, but that's the only thing that's bothering me".

Michigan's charmed run continues into Sweet 16 with upset of Louisville
SC only finished third in the SEC this season, the basketball conference you and everyone you know likes to mock. That defense came through to pull off what may be the most shocking upset of the 2017 March Madness tournament.

"It's a blast because now I can see them in person", she said.

No. 1 North Carolina vs. But after Duke's stunning loss to SC, perhaps nothing should be taken for granted.

The Bulldogs couldn't contend with the Tar Heels on the glass, and had to settle for challenged jump shots most of the one-sided evening. Sindarius Thornwell introduced himself to the world with 24 points in the win over the Blue Devils.

The Big Ten, which was the fourth-rated conference, had seventh-seeded MI and eighth-seeded Wisconsin among its three teams remaining in the Big Dance. They were tough defensively and effective offensively.

"We have to get up and down the floor like we want", Berry said. "But a lot of moments I hope we never forget".

The first time UCLA and Kentucky met this season was in Lexington on December 3. Top-seeded North Carolina plays Butler Friday night, followed by No. 2 seed Kentucky and third-seeded UCLA facing off in the second game.

"The fact that they're a top-15 team is scary - they beat Villanova twice, they're a capable team, you can't get caught up in the slow pace of the game, you've got to always keep the engine revved up", Kennedy Meeks said.

35 percent of brackets picked UNC to face UCLA. The star freshman played so well in the second half of the second-round win over Cincinnati, it looked as if he could carry the Bruins all the way to the Final Four. T.J. Leaf. Malik Monk.

The sophomore forward scored a career-high 16 points, including 14 in the first half, to guide a struggling UNC frontcourt. The Badgers seemingly find themselves in this situation often and are led by the usual suspects of Bronson Koenig, Nigel Hayes and Ethan Happ. "They're just sound and disciplined". Mike White is an up-and-coming head coach who will have UF ready. "You just have to expect a real physical game and not shy away from it". First team to 60 points wins.
