Houston vs Kentucky

Houston vs Kentucky: NCAA Tournament play Friday in the Sweet 16 against No. 3 seed Houston. Here’s the information you need to know to follow the game on television, radio or online.

Though the Kentucky Wildcats advanced to the Sweet 16, they looked like a team that needed more help if they were going to keep advancing in March Madness. Lucky for John Calipari and Co., they’ll get just that. On Friday as they take on a hot Houston Cougars team to finish off the regional semifinal games in the 2019 NCAA Tournament, P.J. Washington will return to the Big Blue lineup.

Washington missed both of Kentucky’s game to start the tournament with a foot injury. In fact, after last weekend, there were questions if he’d be ready for the Sweet 16. With the cast removed and him moving seemingly well, though, he’s on-track to play. That’s huge for the Wildcats as, though Tyler Herro and Keldon Johnson have been awesome, Washington is their guy that makes everything tick.

That’s critical for this matchup, because Kelvin Sampson’s Houston team is coming to play and knock off a blue blood. Led by guards Corey Davis Jr. and Armoni Brooks, the Cougars are a Final Four contender in any capacity. They have the talent, experience and gameplan to knock off any team in the tournament.

Houston’s guards are some of the best in all of college basketball, but Kentucky proved against Wofford that they can lock down defensively. What’s more, Washington’s return could give them an X-factor. Of course, we have to see that actually happen, and you can keep up with the action and score below.

Details for Friday’s Sweet 16 matchup are below:

Virginia Tech vs Duke

Virginia Tech vs Duke: in the Sweet 16 after being cited for marijuana possession last week, the team announced Thursday.

Now, he is using his innate knowledge of point spreads and handicapping as one of SportsLine’s top analysts. White heads into the Sweet 16 on a 24-17 run on college basketball picks. Plus, he’s nailed three-straight picks involving the Hokies, including taking Virginia Tech (-10) to cover in its 66-52 win over St. Louis in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Now, he’s studied Duke vs. Virginia Tech from every angle and released a confident point-spread pick that is only available at SportsLine.

White knows Virginia Tech beat Duke earlier this year, but there was no Williamson. The ACC Player of the Year returned in time for the conference tournament, and Duke won it. The Devils escaped UCF in the second round of the 2019 NCAA Tournament on Sunday, and Zion went off for 32 points.

While Duke is filled with freshman phenoms, including RJ Barrett, the stage won’t be too big for the Devils. In fact, this is the 25th time Duke is in the Sweet 16 under coach Mike Krzyzewski.

Duke lost to just four teams all season, and got revenge on two of them — Syracuse and North Carolina — in the ACC Tournament. The Devils get their chance against the Hokies on Friday, while the fourth team, Gonzaga, could be a Final Four matchup.

But just because the Blue Devils are the overall No. 1 seed with revenge on their mind doesn’t mean they’ll cover the Duke vs. Virginia Tech spread.

Virginia Tech beat Duke without the program’s all-time assists leader, Justin Robinson. He returned for the NCAA Tournament after missing 12 games, and Ty Outlaw, who’s making 45.6 percent of his threes, will also play despite being charged with marijuana possession last week.

The Hokies were 7-5 without Robinson, but are 19-3 when he plays. Against-the-spread, the Hokies have covered in five of their last seven meetings with the Devils. Plus, Duke has failed to cover in four straight NCAA Tournament games.

We can tell you White is leaning under, but his stronger play is on the spread. He has studied this matchup and unearthed the critical x-factor that makes one side of the spread a must-back. He’s only sharing what it is, and who to back, at SportsLine.

Hokies Coach Buzz Williams and Outlaw addressed the situation after the team practiced at the East regional site, Capital One Arena in Washington.

“Ty took a drug test by an outside agency yesterday before we left. And the test was negative,” Williams said. “So maybe sometimes what scrolls across TV may not actually be the whole story or what is published on Twitter in an ironically efficient pace, may not be the whole story. So Ty’s handled everything perfect. He’s been transparent not only with me but with all the authorities involved. And I think it will play itself out.”

Outlaw, a graduate guard-forward, established himself as the Hokies’ top perimeter threat, leading the team in three-point field goals (78) and three-point shooting percentage (. 456) during his final season in Blacksburg. He averages 8.7 points and 5.4 rebounds for Virginia Tech, which was in San Jose for the first two rounds of the NCAA tournament when Outlaw was charged in Blacksburg with possession of marijuana last Thursday.

Auburn vs Unc

Auburn vs Unc: The No. 5 seed Auburn Tigers look to earn their first trip to the Elite Eight since 1986 when they take on the top-seed North Carolina Tar Heels at 7:29 p.m. ET on Friday in the 2019 NCAA Tournament.

Two games in Kansas City now stand between North Carolina and a third trip to the Final Four in the last four years. After two wins in the first weekend, the Tar Heels are into the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament, and will be back in action again tonight.

Awaiting UNC in the regional semifinals is Auburn, who are fresh off a torching of Kansas in the second round. The Tigers and their three point barrage should provide a tough test for the Tar Heels, at least based on what happened against the Jayhawks. On the other hand, Auburn barely escaped New Mexico State in the first round, so who knows what will happen until the teams actually take the court.

If you’re not one of the lucky ones who is on the ground for this weekend’s games, here’s how you can check out UNC and Auburn tonight.

One of the only lower seeds to advance to the Sweet 16 in the 2019 NCAA Tournament was the Auburn Tigers, the 5-seed in the Midwest Region. On Friday night, they’ll now look to advance again as a lower seed as they tip things off in Kansas City by taking on the North Carolina Tar Heels, the top seed in the region, in what could be a classic March Madness matchup.

Though North Carolina had some troubles in their First Round matchup — in the first half — against Iona, they’ve hit their stride since. Roy Williams’ Tar Heels trounced Washington in the Second Round to advance to the second weekend of the tournament. Led by star freshman point guard Coby White and veterans Cameron Johnson and Luke Maye, UNC looks primed to make a deep run.

While that may be true, Auburn looked downright scary in their Second Round triumph over the Kansas Jayhawks. This is a Tigers team that lives and dies by the 3-point shot, and they were living in a big way with Bryce Brown and Justin Harper leading a long-range shooting barrage. Thus, they could put up a ton of points on any night they’re on the floor.

This should be a high-scoring affair on Friday night as both North Carolina and Auburn are terrific offensive teams. And be sure not to blink as they will be moving a furious pace from the opening tip to the final whistle. Meanwhile, you can track the score of the game below.

LSU vs MI State

LSU vs MI State: The paint presence will be one of the keys to the game for third-seeded LSU and second-seeded Michigan State come Friday evening.

Michigan State doesn’t suit up anyone taller than 6-foot-9, while LSU’s Naz Reid and Kavell Bigby-Williams both stand at 6-foot-10 and 6-foot-11, respectively.

Despite the noticeable size difference, LSU expects the game to be yet another physical battle.

“Their bigs are tough, physical. They can do a lot of things we can do,” Reid said. “They’re a great team. They’re one of the best teams in the country, I would say. And we’re just looking to go after them.”

LSU is looking for its first Elite Eight berth since 2006. Michigan State is looking for its first Elite Eight berth since 2015.

While most of the crowd heading to Capital One Arena may be waiting for Zion Williamson and Duke to take the floor, the first game of the night in Washington is no slouch. The matchup between LSU and Michigan State features two teams who won regular season titles in two of the strongest conferences in America.

LSU won the SEC in the regular season, but they have looked sluggish since head coach Will Wade was suspended for being caught up in the FBI’s recruiting probe. The Tigers struggled to get by Yale and needed a last-second layup from Tremont Waters to get past 6-seed Maryland to earn their spot in the Sweet 16.

LSU will need to step up their game to take on the Spartans, who won both the regular season title and conference tournament in the deep Big Ten. Michigan State had a massive scare in the first round, struggling with 15-seed Bradley for a long time before advancing into a matchup with conference rival Minnesota.

The Golden Gophers were no match for the Spartans, who blew out their Big Ten brethren by 20 to return to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2015 when they went to the Final Four. Point guard Cassius Winston facilitated a lot of the Michigan State offense, scoring 13 points and picking up nine assists for good measure.

Whoever wins this game may have the mammoth task of trying to take down Duke in the Elite Eight, but both coaches will be sure to emphasize the importance of taking care of the task at hand first.

Letzteres Team gingen indes bei drei Match als Sieger vom Platz.
With an open roof and a number of upgrades in place for this fall’s Rugby World Cup, the hallowed Kansai ground played host to 25,172 fans and a game with plenty of star power but just one goal as David Villa’s second-half effort gave Vissel Kobe a narrow win over struggling Sagan Tosu.

Both teams were looking to turn things around in the second round after disappointing opening weekends — Kobe lost its opener 1-0 at Cerezo Osaka, while Tosu was thumped 4-0 at home by Nagoya Grampus and 2018 top-scorer Jo.

Vissel manager Juan Manuel Lillo again fielded his all-star “VIP” trio of Villa, Andres Iniesta, and Lukas Podolski, with Brazilian defender Dankler making his J. League debut after joining on a full transfer from Portugal’s Vitoria earlier this week.

Newcomer Dankler seemed shaky at some points — earning a yellow card in the 31st minute — but was effective in containing Tosu’s biggest weapons, strikers Fernando Torres and Mu Kanazaki.

As Iniesta roamed the pitch putting out fires, it was Villa who created two of Vissel’s best chances in the first half. His half-volley in the 11th minute went slightly wide of the post, while a powerful shot following Dankler’s long pass from the back clanged off the crossbar in the 34th, much to the chagrin of the crowd.

Tosu did well to bottle up Vissel’s foreign talent, but created few chances of its own as the balance of power seemed to shift toward the host in the approach to halftime.

“I didn’t feel like we played defensively,” Tosu manager Luis Carreras said after the match. “We tried to connect the ball and attack as soon as we forced a turnover.”

The best chance by a Japanese player on either side came in the 41st minute, when Kobe’s Kyogo Furuhashi crashed into teammate Villa by mistake, managed to stay upright to receive the former Valencia star’s pass, and unleashed a strong right-footed shot that went just wide of the near post.

“We had a lot of chances in which we could have scored and you can’t evaluate the match without considering those,” Lillo said. “The match developed similarly to last week’s against Cerezo, and in general we were in control.”
