Regional Championships 2019: Elite Eight
The Elite 8 is make or break for remaining NCAA tournament hopefuls, when just one win separates the eight schools from a coveted Final Four berth. The past few seasons have seen some noteworthy, and unexpected, Elite Eight teams.
In 2014, No. 11 seed Dayton upset No. 3 Syracuse in the Sweet 16, and then took down Stanford in the Elite 8 en route to a Final Four bid. Two seasons later in 2016, Syracuse made some upset magic of its own, getting revenge on Dayton in the First Round followed by wins over Middle Tennessee, Gonzaga, and No. 1 Virginia to become the first-ever 10 seed to make the Final Four. And in the 2017 tournament, Xavier had a memorable run before falling to top-seeded Gonzaga in the Elite Eight.
This year's Elite Eight games will take place in four cities across the country on Saturday and Sunday, March 30 and 31. Capital One Arena in Washington D.C. will host the East Regional, while the West Regional will be played at the Honda Center in Anaheim. The South Regional will be played at the YUM! Center in Louisville, and the Midwest Regional will take place at the Sprint Center in Kansas City.
