Vanderbilt's basketball season is over, but there's still two weeks of madness left. Join us to discuss Wisconsin/UNC, Notre Dame/Wichita State, West Virginia/Kentucky, and Xavier/Arizona.

One week of March Madness down. One to go.

The NCAA Tournament rolls on tonight as two #1 seeds take to the floor. Wisconsin and the SEC's very own Kentucky Wildcats will return to action after two relatively easy runs through the bracket's first weekend. They'll face North Carolina and West Virginia, respectively, with a shot at the Elite Eight on the line. Elsewhere, a pair of lower-seeded near-Cinderellas will try to keep their seasons alive. Seventh-seeded Wichita State will try to build on their upset win over Kansas when they face a Notre Dame team that barely squeaked by Butler in the second round. Six seed Xavier dispatched day one darling Georgia State in their last matchup, but they'll have a tougher foe to deal with when they meet with Arizona in tonight's late game.

Here's the full schedule for Thursday night:
