Tip-off time for the Sweet 16 is getting close.

There are four games on the schedule Thursday night, starting with the South Regional semifinal between second-seeded Villanova and third-seeded Miami. They tip at 7:10 p.m. Eastern, and when they’re done, top seed Kansas will take the floor against fifth-seeded Maryland. The winners meet Saturday for a trip to the Final Four.

In the West, it will be the nation’s second-leading scorer, Buddy Hield, leading No. 2 Oklahoma against No. 3 Texas A&M; at 7:37 p.m., followed by No. 1 Oregon against the defending national champions, fourth-seeded Duke.

The Midwest and East Regionals are Friday, with North Carolina, Virginia, Gonzaga and Syracuse among those in action.
