The second half of the Sweet 16 will be determined Sunday with a Big Ten-related doubleheader including Ohio State Buckeyes - Iowa State Cyclones and Indiana Hoosiers - Temple Owls tipping off the day's festivities on CBS. The day's marquee affair between Kansas Jayhawks and North Carolina Tar Heels will tip at 5:15 in Kansas City. Your Sunday schedule is below (all times ET):

Iowa State vs. Ohio State, 12:15 p.m. (CBS), Dayton: This could be an interesting contest, especially if Iowa State hits 3-pointers and is allowed to get out and run like it did against Notre Dame. But Ohio State is a different animal. The Buckeyes are physical and contest closely on the perimeter, which could mean trouble for Iowa State.

Temple vs. Indiana, 2:45 p.m. (CBS), Dayton: Khalif Wyatt is capable of single-handedly carrying Temple to a win, but he had issues with his left hand on Friday. If he isn’t 100 percent healthy, the Owls could struggle. Indiana is more talented and has more weapons, but the Hoosiers need to come out strong early. 

North Carolina vs. Kansas, 5:15 p.m. (CBS), Kansas City: This is the must-watch game of the day, as Roy Williams will face his former team for the right to go to Dallas. North Carolina will look to speed up the tempo and spread the floor, but the Tar Heels will have trouble containing Jeff Withey on the inside. Which team gets better point guard play?

Minnesota Golden Gophers vs. Florida Gators , 6:10 p.m. (TNT), Austin: Tubby Smith picked up a big win over UCLA on Friday, but Billy Donovan and Florida are waiting in the Round of 32. If the Gophers can keep it close, we all know the Gators have struggled a ton in single-digit games. Minnesota has to take care of the ball and limit turnovers.

Florida Gulf Coast Eagles vs. San Diego State Aztecs , 7:10 p.m. (TBS), Philadelphia: Does Florida Gulf Coast’s Cinderella run continue, after the Eagles beat Georgetown in a highlight-reel effort on Friday? San Diego State is experienced and talented on the perimeter, and the Aztecs have more shot-makers than Georgetown. Florida Gulf Coast will have to get out in transition again.

La Salle Explorers vs. Ole Miss Rebels , 7:40 p.m. (truTV), Kansas City: This one should be fun. La Salle’s guards have stolen the show in its first two games, while Marshall Henderson steals the show in pretty much any environment. Will La Salle’s quickness and ability on the perimeter frustrate him defensively? Ole Miss does have the bigs to control the interior, though.

Illinois Fighting Illini vs. Miami (Fla.) Hurricanes , 8:40 p.m. (TNT), Austin: Miami (Fla.) had one of the more dominant performances of Friday, easily cruising past Pacific. Illinois looked great for a half against Colorado, but needed late shots to pull away. Brandon Paul and D.J. Richardson have to be consistent from the perimeter, and Illinois has to be tough down low.

Creighton Bluejays vs. Duke Blue Devils , 9:40 p.m. (TBS), Philadelphia: Expect some terrific perimeter shooting in this one. Both teams like to spread the floor around one big man and wait for the defense to collapse on Doug McDermott (Creighton) and Mason Plumlee (Duke). The matchup between McDermott and Duke’s Ryan Kelly will be the one to watch.
