It’s another full weekend of college basketball. Rejoice.
The NCAA Tournament is in full swing as the Sweet 16 finishes up on Friday night. By the end of the weekend, we will have a Final Four set in stone. Let’s dive into all the action this weekend.
What we’re watching Friday:
- CBB: Saint Peter’s vs. Purdue — 7:09 PM ET
- CBB: Providence vs. Kansas — 7:29 PM ET
- CBB: North Carolina vs. UCLA — 9:39 PM ET
- CBB: Iowa State vs. Miami — 9:59 PM ET
- NBA: Knicks vs. Heat — 8 PM ET
What we’re watching Saturday:
- CBB: Houston vs. Villanova — 6:09 PM ET
- CBB: Arkansas vs. Duke — 8:49 PM ET
- NBA: Nets vs. Heat — 8 PM ET
What we’re watching Sunday:
- NBA: Knicks vs. Pistons — 3:30 PM ET
- NBA: Nets vs. Hornets — 7:30 PM ET
- CBB: Elite Eight
Who’s Next for Saint Peter’s?
The Saint Peter’s Peacocks are the Cinderella of this year’s NCAA Tournament and Purdue is up next. The Peacocks have already taken out Kentucky and Murray St. to become the third 15-seed to make it to a Sweet 16.
A win over Purdue would make Saint Peter’s the biggest Cinderella in NCAA Tournament history. A win over UNC/UCLA after that would send the little Jersey City school to the Final Four.
The phrase “crazier things have happened” is usually a go-to for me, but it doesn’t apply in this situation. Crazier things have not happened.
Coach K Lives to Fight Another Day
The world is waiting for Duke to lose in the NCAA Tournament, but the Blue Devils are keeping things moving. Coach Mike Krzyzewski is going to have an Elite Eight run in his final season, at the very least.
"I coach that guy, holy mackerel" ?

Peyton Manning Joins Instagram
The Mannings love a good social media post. Right after Eli Manning announced his love for Saint Peter’s, older brother Peyton joined Instagram. The sibling rivalry never stops.
