The Virginia Cavaliers will face off against the Michigan State Spartans on Friday night as the March Madness Sweet 16 Round comes to an end. This is the final game of the Sweet 16 round, and these teams will be fighting off for the final berth in the NCAA 2014 Elite 8.
The Virginia Cavaliers have come into the tournament as one of the No. 1 seeds, and so far they have lived up to that billing. However, the No. 4 seeded Michigan State Spartans will be their most difficult challenge to date, and they will be hoping to cause an upset tonight at Madison Square Garden in New York.
The game between the Virginia Cavaliers and the Michigan State Spartans will start at 9.57 p.m. ET, and can be watched on TV on the TBS network. The game can also be watched online through free live stream by clicking here.

Thursday saw some dramatic developments in the NCAA 2014 tournament with the first four games taking place.
The fairytale story of the Dayton Flyers continued as they stormed to a confident victory over Stanford Cardinal. It was the first half of that game that made all the difference, with Dayton setting the pace and going out into a 10 point lead by the half way mark, 42-32.
The second half was tight, but the Flyers were able to hold off Stanford to maintain their 10 point advantage until the end, rounding off an 82-72 win that sees them advance to the Elite 8.
That win sparked wild celebrations back on campus at Dayton where thousands of students were seen partying in the streets, celebrating another upset from their team.
However, they will have to put on the performance of a lifetime in the Elite 8 round. Their reward is to face No. 1 seeded Florida Gators on March 29, and if they can claim a win there, they will be in dream land and be just one more win away from the Championship game.
In other results on Thursday night, the Gators defeated the UCLA Bruins 79-68, where as Arizona defeated SDSU 70-64, and Wisconsin defeated Baylor 69-52. That sets up a mouthwatering clash between Arizona and Wisconsin for the West division in the Elite 8 round.
