We’re one step closer to the Final Four, and the final days before the national championship could wind up as unexpected as the entire season.

For the four teams playing for the national semifinals Saturday, defense has led the way. Syracuse shut down Cody Zeller and the Indiana offensive attack, while Miami couldn’t make a shot against Marquette.

The Sweet 16, as always, finds a way to capture the imagination.

The NCAA Tournament moves into the second weekend with its share of storylines, even if the biggest one from Dunk City seems to overshadow all.

Few people saw Wichita State, the runner up in the Missouri Valley, advancing this far. And even fewer could have tabbed La Salle to go on a run out of the First Four.

Like everyone's brackets, some of Athlon Sports' NCAA Tournament picks did not fare so well (Thanks, West region).

That's not going to stop us from giving it another try. Our editorial staff picked every game in the Sweet 16, hopefully with better luck this time around.

The first weekend of the NCAA Tournament has caused us to rethink some things, specifically all those brackets with Gonzaga, New Mexico and Georgetown making deep runs.

We’ve learned a little bit -- we know where Florida Gulf Coast actually is, apart from, you know, the Gulf Coast of Florida. We know La Salle is actually pretty good, despite being one of the last teams in the field.

After 52 NCAA Tournament games since Tuesday, the field is down to 16. And what a wild week it was.

Florida Gulf Coast will bring Dunk City to Sweet 16

The best story of the NCAA Tournament beats San Diego State to become first 15 seed to win two

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

The athletic director is a little annoyed CBS’s score graphic lists his school as “Florida G.C.” One scoreboard mistakenly listed the team as “Florida Golf Coast.” The New York Times issued a correction for a piece that called the school “Gulf Coast College.” San Diego State coach Steve Fisher accidentally called his opponent "Florida State" -- in a postgame press conference. And that doesn’t account for dozens of hastily typed acronyms.

The Big Ten has four teams in the Sweet 16 (so far), but Dayton has made two of the league’s best sweat.

A couple hours after Ohio State’s Aaron Craft hit his game-winning three-pointer against Iowa State, Indiana got its own three-point dagger from Victor Oladipo in a 58-52 win to advance the Hoosiers to their second consecutive regional semifinal.

When Ohio State’s Sweet 16 bid came down to the last shot, there was seemingly no way Aaron Craft wouldn’t be the one take it.

Craft gave the 2013 NCAA Tournament its first game-winning three-pointer in the final second when the Buckeyes point guard hung onto the ball for the final shot with less than a second remaining to defeat Iowa State 78-75.
