Elite Eight schedule: Duke, Saint Peter’s seek trips to Final Four


The final day of men’s NCAA tournament Sweet 16 games took place on Friday night, delivering a more than adequate amount of drama to an already wacky year of March Madness. 

Saint Peter’s became the first No. 15 seed in tournament history to advance to the Elite Eight with an upset victory over No. 3 Purdue. The Peacocks historic run continued on in remarkable fashion but they were far from the only team in action on Friday. 

Kansas was the sole No. 1 seed to advance with a narrow win over No. 4 Providence. No. 8 UNC pulled off another upset over No. 4 UCLA. Finally, No. 10 Miami (Fla.) became the second double-digit seed to fight its way into the Elite Eight with a 14-point victory over No. 11 Iowa State.
