[1] FLORIDA (35-2) VS. [11] DAYTON (26-10)

5:09 p.m. • TBS

The skinny: Dayton has gotten this far two other times in its history, a 1967 national title game loss to UCLA and a 1984 trip to the Elite Eight. The Flyers beat Stanford on Thursday with great ball handling, committing one turnover. But the pressure gets turned up against the tournament's No. 1 overall seed. The Gators are rolling and possess superior size, and senior PG Scottie Wilbekin is at the top of his game on both sides of the ball. Florida has reached the Elite Eight for the fourth year in a row but is looking for its first Final Four in that span.


[1] ARIZONA (33-4) VS. [2] WISCONSIN (29-7)

7:49 p.m. • TBS

The skinny: Arizona All-America G Nick Johnson, scoreless for 37 minutes against San Diego State, was unstoppable with 15 points over the final three minutes as the Wildcats pulled an escape act. The Badgers hardly broke a sweat in crushing Baylor, their offense in high gear again. Now they face one of the nation's top defensive teams, with Arizona surrendering 58.4 points per game. Following this game, one of the nation's best coaches will be appearing in his first Final Four, either Arizona's Sean Miller or Wisconsin's Bo Ryan.
