Breakdown of Sunday’s games not to be missed

Here are Sunday’s top March Madness 2022 games to watch:

No. 5 Houston vs. No. 4 Illinois: 12:10 p.m. CBS

The last day of the first weekend begins with two teams with very different March experiences. Houston, emerging from a Final Four appearance, rolled over UAB on Friday and has lost just once since Feb. 17. After upsetting Illinois in the second round as the No. 1 seed last year, Illinois went out in the first round almost a year later, barely surviving against No. 13 Chattanooga.

No. 7 Ohio State vs. N. 2 Villanova: 2:40 p.m. CBS

Ohio State’s Chris Holtmann is hoping to finally make the Sweet 16 in his fifth season, but he’ll likely need more offense from EJ Liddell & Co. than the 54 points they got in a weak slugfest against Loyola collected Chicago. Big East Tournament champion Villanova is always a tough hit this time of year, led by two-time NCA champion coach Jay Wright and a veteran point guard in Collin Gillespie.

No. 7 Michigan State vs. No. 2 Duke: 5:15 p.m. CBS

It’s hard to believe that a coaching match of this magnitude only happens in the second round, but here we are: Dukes’ Mike Krzyzewski (1,199 career wins) vs. Michigan State’s Tom Izzo (666). Both are national champions and future Hall of Famers, with Coach K hoping his latest drive doesn’t end before the Final Four.

#11: Notre Dame vs. #3 Texas Tech: 7:10 p.m. TBS

Manhattan native Cormac Ryan had the game of his life in the first round against Alabama, posting a career-high 29 points with seven 3s. The Irish may need a similar effort against Texas Tech, who showed they can attack a bit to complement their lockdown defense and scored 97 in Round 1 against Montana State.

#10 Miami (Fla.) vs. #2 Auburn: 7:45 p.m., truTV

This is all about the Jabari Smith Show. The lanky Auburn freshman, in the running for the No. 1 pick in the 2022 NBA draft, showed up in the first round with 20 points, 14 rebounds and an incredible dunk in the closing minutes against Jacksonville State. What does he have in mind as an encore?

(9) TCU vs. (1) Arizona: 9:40 p.m. TBS

The East Coasters may not have caught much Arizona basketball this year, but the Wildcats are one of the finest offenses in the country. They have at least 82 points in six straight games, with guard Bennedict Mathurin leading the attack. TCU held Seton Hall to 42 points in a first-round win, but this will be a much tougher test.
