Sweet 16 Live Scores: Baylor vs. Xavier, UNC vs. Ohio

The Sweet 16 continues Friday night with a couple potential upset specials, neon uniforms and a North Carolina squad with its star point guard very likely out with a broken wrist.

The first No. 1 seed was knocked out on Thursday at the hands of No. 4 Louisville, who's defense was too much for the Michigan State Spartans. Rick Pitino remained undefeated in the Sweet 16 remains unbeaten in the Sweet 16 and will now face his former pupil Billy Donovan in the Elite Eight.

Friday's first match-up features the bright third-seeded Baylor Bears squaring off against one of the three double-digit seeds left, No. 10 Xavier. Brady Heslip's 3-point bonanza lifted the Bears past No. 11 Colorado in the third round, but will they be able to sustain their momentum to make a second Elite Eight appearance in three years?

As of Thursday afternoon, it was unlikely that No. 1 North Carolina would have its starting point guard Kendall Marshall. The Tar Heels must get through potential Cinderella, No. 13 Ohio which beat No. 4 Michigan and No. 12 South Florida. Will Marshall's health lead to UNC's demise?
