The Sweet 16 has arrived with a loaded slate of matchups. Sure, the first weekend of the men’s NCAA tournament was fairly chalky, with few major upsets, but that’s left us with an array of juicy matchups as we get deeper into the tournament.

The second wave of the tourney begins Thursday with the West and East regionals, which will feature two 1 seeds, two 2 seeds and plenty of basketball brand names, like North Carolina, UConn and Arizona.

    UConn’s Cam Spencer is heating up with nine points in the first 9:30. The transfer guard from Rutgers did not play on last year’s title team. He’s a key player and a big-time scorer for a Huskies team looking to repeat. UConn leads, 27-18.

    It’s a scorching start in the rematch of last year’s title game. UConn leads San Diego State, 10-9 at the first break. Each team is shooting 50% or better from the field. SDSU’s Jaedon LeDee leads the way with seven early points. The fifth-year senior forward leads SDSU with 21.5 points per game after playing off the bench during last year’s run to the title game.

    Signs of life from Arizona. Clemson calls timeout with 5:42 to go in the first half after Arizona gets a fast-break dunk to cut the lead to 29-20.

    Wildcats star Caleb Love is just 1 of 7 shooting so far.

    In the East region, San Diego State scores first for a 2-0 lead, and UConn trails for the first time in the tournament. What a stat for the reigning champs.

    Clemson has 11 points off turnovers as Arizona’s ability to capitalize on its myriad missed shots has kept the lead smaller than it could be. The Wildcats have nine second-chance points. Clemson leads 29-16 at the under-8 timeout.

    Arizona’s shooting has not improved … yet. The Wildcats are 2 of 13 from the field and trail 16-6 at the under-12 timeout. Clemson’s defensive pressure is frustrating the Wildcats.
