March Madness live: College basketball scores, 2022 NCAA Tournament bracket updates for Sweet 16 on Friday

Friday’s slate of Sweet 16 games is about the underdogs as NCAA Tournament action rolls on with the last four regional semifinal contests before the Elite eight gets underway on Saturday. At least one double-digit seed is guaranteed to advance from Friday’s schedule, while one of the greatest NCAA Tournament Cinderellas of all time could make it two.

No. 15 seed Saint Peter’s takes on No. 3 seed Purdue in the first game of the night at 7:09 pm ET in East Region action. The Peacocks captivated the nation last weekend with upsets over Kentucky and Murray State, and are seeking to become the first No. 15 seed to ever reach the Elite Eight. No. 4 seed Providence is also an underdog in the early set of games, as the Friars take on No. 1 seed Kansas at 7:29 pm in a contest the Jayhawks are favored to win by 7.5 points.

The nightcap is highlighted by a blue-blood battle between No. 4 seed UCLA and No. 8 seed North Carolina. While it’s strange to consider the Tar Heels a Cinderella squad, they fit the bill after a rocky regular season. Finally, the action wraps for the night with No. 10 seed Miami taking on No. 11 seed Iowa State. The Hurricanes are seeking their first-ever Elite Eight appearance, while Iowa State hopes to continue its remarkable turnaround after winning just two games last season.
