2016 Mens College Basketball Championship Odds: ACC vs Big 12

The Sweet Sixteen bracket consisted of primarily two conferences, the Atlantic Coast and the Big 12. The Sweet-16 schedule looked more like an ACC Tournament then an overall Division I championship.

The ACC qualified six teams to the Sweet 16, a record, and have, as of March 26th, 2015, send four teams to the Elite Eight. For those that are more visual then verbal, the entire right side of the NCAA Mens bracket, is comprised of ACC schools. This of course, means, the Atlantic Coast will occupy half of the Final Four slots, and most important, one of the two Monday night, April 4th, Championship spots. For the first time in the storied history of this tournament four teams from one league will own the same side of the bracket in the Elite Eight.

North Carolina, the top seed in the East, easily toppled Indiana 101-86. No. 6 seed Notre Dame pulled off yet another heart-pounding final minute in regulation, outscoring the Badgers 8-0 in the final minute in a 61-56 win.

In the Midwest Region, top-seeded Virginia showed the college basketball pundits it could put the pumpkin in the peach basket rolling past Iowa State 84-71 to set up a showdown with league mate and No. 13 seed Syracuse, which outworked the Gonzaga Bulldogs 63-60.

The rest of the Elite Eight includes two Big 12 teams, No. 1 Kansas, which faces Big East Villanova in the South Region, and No. 2 seeded Oklahoma, which squares off against No. 1 seeded Oregon in the West bracket.
