Sweet 16 predictions 2013: Wichita St. expected to move on

Not many experts are predicting upsets in this week's Sweet 16 round.


The NCAA Tournament continues on Thursday with the Sweet 16 round. After an exciting, unpredictable first weekend, there aren't expected to be many upsets this time around. However, predictable basketball doesn't automatically mean boring basketball, and there are a ton of interesting matchups in play on Thursday and Friday.

CBS' panel of experts is unanimous in most of their predictions. All four pundits have Miami, Louisville, Michigan, Duke and Florida moving on to the Elite Eight. Matt Norlander is the only one who thinks Syracuse can upset No. 1 seed Indiana.

There's a bit more dissent in Thursday's nightcap. Norlander and Gary Parrish both have the Wichita St. Shockers defeating the La Salle Explorers, while Jeff Goodman and Jeff Borzello picked La Salle to pull off the win.

Elsewhere, Norlander and Goodmand picked Arizona, and Parrish and Borzello have Ohio St. moving on.
