For all the Vermonts, Bucknells and Wisconsin-Milwaukees that made the NCAA basketball tournament an occasion to remember, the perceived heavyweights of the game are still standing for the Sweet 16.
Illinois, North Carolina, Duke and Washington - named No. 1 seeds a week ago - are alive and well for the tournament's second weekend, starting Thursday night.
The field remaining is a testament both to unpredictability and sameness. Consider: Of the top 16 seeds put in place last Sunday, only eight remain - a fewer number than any Sweet 16 since the 2000 tournament.
Still, the only real Cinderella team left is 12th-seeded Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Every other program is from a so-called BCS conference - except Louisville and Utah, which are hardly upstarts. Last year, the round of 16 included teams like Alabama-Birmingham, Nevada, Xavier and St. Joseph's.
Three matchups jump out: North Carolina and Villanova on Friday in the Syracuse Regional, Washington and Louisville on Thursday in Albuquerque, and Arizona and Oklahoma State on Thursday in Chicago.
