Regional Semifinal Friday Open Thread

The eight teams playing in Houston and St. Louis tonight will have a hard time matching the excitement of last night's West Regional Semifinals in Salt Lake City, where Butler stunned the region's top seed, Syracuse, and Kansas State defeated Xavier in a double-overtime thriller.

In the South Regional in Houston, 10th-seeded St. Mary's will look to continue their run, as they face third-seeded Baylor. Afterward, top seed Duke takes on four seed Purdue, who's done well to get this far without Robbie Hummel.

The Midwest Regional Semis in St. Louis feature second-seeded Ohio State taking on Tennessee, in a rematch of a Sweet 16 game from 2007. The nightcap sees Northern Iowa in search of a third-straight win, this time against fifth-seeded Michigan State, who will play their first full game without Kalin Lucas.

Be sure to check out my full Friday Regional Semifinal Preview that's up at SB Nation.
