Had enough basketball? We didn't think so. With spots in the third round still up for grabs, Georgetown, Ohio State and North Carolina are among the marquee teams in action on Friday night.

Final Four hopefuls Ohio State, Georgetown and Florida will be looking to avoid the type of early upset that sent Kansas State home earlier on Friday. The No. 2 Buckeyes will be faced with high-scoring Iona. The No. 15 Gaels will look to push the pace and outscore the Big Ten power.

No. 2 Georgetown may have the best player in the nation in Otto Porter, but No. 15 Florida Gulf Coast may have one fan who draws more attention than anyone on the floor if she is in the stands in Philadelphia. The wife of FGC coach Andy Enfield is former supermodel Amanda Marcum.

Not playing in Philadelphia but with plenty of fans in the City Of Brotherly Love, the No. 9 Villanova Wildcats will tangle with the No. 8 North Carolina Tar Heels in Kansas City.

Another prolific underdog hoping to bust your bracket on Friday night is No. 14 Northwestern State who will be taking on No. 3 Florida. On Thursday night, No. 14 Harvard stunned No. 3 New Mexico. Can the Demons pull off the same trick?
