2017 NCAA MEN'S BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT
March 25, 2017  | By David Bianculli

TBS, 6:00 p.m. ET

 

The Elite Eight begin fighting tonight, with the winners of tonight’s two games moving on to prestigious Final Four. Both of tonight’s games are televised by TBS, beginning at 6 p.m. ET with the West’s No. 1-seeded Gonzaga Bulldogs vs. No. 11 Xavier Musketeers, the only double-digit seed still competing. The Musketeers notched a thrilling victory against the No. 2-seeded Arizona Wildcats Thursday night, with fervid Xavier fan Bill Murray rooting them on from the stands. Watch for him again tonight – and his enthusiasm is both precedented and personal. Murray was seen showing similarly vocal support in the stands of Wrigley Field, watching many games as his beloved Chicago Cubs won their historic World Series last year. But rooting for Xavier is a family affair as well: His son, Luke, is a staffer for Xavier coach Chris Mack. Later, at 8:45 p.m. ET, Midwest’s No. 1 Kansas Jayhawks battle the No. 3 Oregon Ducks.
