Four days later on Thursday, March 20, two second round sessions will be played at BMO Harris Bradley Center, each session to include two games. The second round winners of the four games, will play Saturday March 22 in session 3, which will also be comprised of two games. The two winners from the third round will advance to the Sweet 16 and their respective Regional.
