Even with a couple of top seeds falling victim to upsets, the 2017 Sweet 16 is already shaping up as a highly compelling slate of college basketball.

Gonzaga, owners of the sixth-best effective field-goal percentage in the country, will take on West Virginia, whose relentless press allows them to force more turnovers per possession than anyone in the country. An intriguing contrast of styles there.

Both Michigan and Oregon can absolutely light up the scoreboard, and that one might be the first to 90 wins. If you like elite defense instead, there’s Wisconsin vs. Florida.

Then, of course, there’s Arizona vs. Xavier in the Sean Miller Bowl.

Even before all of the matchups are set, the regional semifinals are looking extremely compelling.

With that in mind, here’s a complete look at the updated NCAA tournament bracket and the schedule for this year’s Sweet 16. We’ll update with game times and TV channels as soon as that information is made available.
