CBS has set the times for Thursday and Friday games in the round of 16.
Duke will play Villanova in the late game Thursday. Tip off in Boston is approximately 9:57 p.m. North Carolina will meet Gonzaga in the late game Friday. Tip off in Memphis is also 9:57 p.m.
Duke and North Carolina shared the stage during first- and second-round games in Greensboro. Duke won a difficult battle with Texas, 74-69. North Carolina broke open a very tight battle with LSU to win 84-70.
Because the teams were placed in different regions, the Blue Devils and Tar Heels will now go separate ways. Duke plays in the East Regional. UNC is in the South Regional.
The top four seeds advanced in both the East and South.
