Last night’s UC-OSU game was bittersweet for Ohioans, who now have at least one team securing a spot in the Elite Eight — the Ohio State Buckeyes defeated the University of Cincinnati Bearcats — but are down to three Ohio teams fighting for victory.
Tonight: The Xavier Musketeers face the Baylor Bears at 7:17 p.m. (CBS) and the Ohio Bobcats take on the University of North Carolina Tar Heels at 7:47 p.m. (TBS).

Colleges march to beat of different drummers
On Sunday, when uniformed members of the Best Damn Band in the Land perform onstage in their annual Veterans Memorial show, audiences can expect an upbeat two-hour roundup of the school’s iconic pep songs and halftime fare, ranging from jazz and Broadway to classic rock.
The next night, during an Ohio Theatre concert by the Ohio University Marching 110, players will parade down the aisles and boogie in their chairs. They’ll offer the season’s Top 40 and retro cuts that include AC/DC, Adele and the LMFAO club thumper Party Rock Anthem, which features a dance break — the same on-field rendition that has clocked the Athens bunch more than 4 million YouTube views since its Oct. 1 debut.
