The 2024 NCAA Tournament continues its march toward crowning a national champion with four Sweet 16 games on Thursday and Friday. 

Thursday’s Game of the Day?

That’s probably North Carolina vs. Alabama — a No. 1 vs. No. 4 game in the West Region inside crytpo.com Arena. The Tar Heels, led by All-American guard RJ Davis, made the Sweet 16 for the second time in a three-year span by beating Wagner and Michigan State by double-digits. The Crimson Tide, led by All-American guard Mark Sears, made the Sweet 16 for the third time in a four-year span by beating Charleston and Grand Canyon by double-digits.

The only game on Thursday between two top-three seeds is Iowa State-Illinois. The Cyclones are the No. 2 seed in the East. The Illini are the No. 3 seed in the East. Iowa State opened a 2.5-point favorite. If the Cyclones win, they’ll then be just one more victory away from advancing to the Final Four for the first time since 1944.
