Sacramento Preview: Four teams looking to stake two claims in the Sweet Sixteen

03/19/2017

SACRAMENTO, CA – The Second Round heats up in the Golden State’s capital Sunday evening, when two Pac-12 three-seeds take on two high-octane challengers, with a couple of spots in the Sweet Sixteen on the line.

Tipping things off at 7:10 PM Eastern, under-the-radar Rhode Island–the Midwest Regions’s eleven-seed–will look to contain Pac-12 Player of the Year Dillon Brooks and the Oregon Ducks.

Then, closing out the night, Mick Cronin’s sixth-seeded Cincinnati Bearcats will look to slow down UCLA’s high-flying attack.

Jason Benetti and Mike Montgomery have the calls from the Golden 1 Center.
