2024 NCAA Tournament expert picks: picks for the games in the Sweet 16 on Friday.

Even though it’s the Sweet 16, the end will be bad for eight teams.

It’s almost time for the Elite Eight in March Madness. On Friday night, the last four tickets to the regional finals were punched. It’s still very interesting to watch the competition.

When they play Marquette, the NC State Wolfpack will have a chance to keep their winning streak going until March. And Duke has to make a deep run every March, no matter how you feel about them. Head coach Jon Scheyer has a chance to lead the Blue Devils to their first Elite Eight since 2022.

It would also be his first time as a head coach in the Elite Eight. He still has a long way to go to catch up to his boss, though.

The following is how USA TODAY Sports thinks the games on Friday night will end:
