It wasn’t pretty in the Round of 32, but Rick Barnes snuck past his old school, Texas with a 62-58 win. Now, the Tennessee Volunteers are on to Detroit for the Midwest Regional semifinal against Creighton. 

The Bluejays needed overtime to advance through the first weekend of the tournament. After handling Akron in the Round of 64, Greg McDermott’s team ran into a hot Oregon squad that won the Pac-12 Tournament to steal a bid as an 11 seed. Oregon gave Creighton all it could handle, but the Bluejays prevailed 86-73 in double overtime, courtesy of a 15-2 run in the second OT. 

Now, Dalton Knecht, an elite wing who transferred up from a mid-major this offseason, will square off against Baylor Scheierman, an elite wing who did the same two years ago, both in search of a Final Four. 

Both Tennessee and Creighton are in search of their first Final Four in school history and the winner of this Sweet 16 matchup will have to take down either No. 1 seed Purdue or No. 5 seed Gonzaga, who play at the Little Caesar’s Arena in Detroit as the first game of the Friday night doubleheader. Here’s how you can watch game No. 2.
