Maize n Brew’s NCAA Tournament 2020 simulation rolls along as close out the round of 32. Today, we send eight more teams to the Sweet Sixteen to close out the weekend.

The simulations are being run via ncaagamesim.com by selecting the matchups and compiling them based on what happens with ONE CLICK of the mouse. This is the best way for us to simulate the chaos that could ensue during a single basketball game.

Previous results:

Here are your results for Sunday’s games. Our Sweet Sixteen is now set.

Midwest Region

(1) Kansas 62, (8) Colorado 52

The Jayhawks move on as one of the favorites still left in this tournament after a few days of chaos.

(3) Maryland 79, (6) Iowa 71

The Luka Garza show ends in our Sunday run of games. Maryland has had a tendency to flame out in this tournament before, but this group advances.

East Region

(1) Dayton 91, (9) Florida 67

Dayton’s blast of a season led by Obi Toppin continues in a romp of the Gators.

(5) Ohio State 61, (13) Vermont 57

The Flyers and Buckeyes are matched up in a battle for Ohio, and much more, next weekend in the Sweet Sixteen.

West Region

(4) Oregon 78, (12) Stephen F. Austin 61

The Oregon Ducks move onto the second weekend of action as Payton Pritchard and company move on.

(7) Arizona 74, (2) Florida State 72

It has not been a great tournament for two seeds, as Villanova was the only one to move into the Sweet Sixteen.

South Region

(1) Baylor 65, (9) Rutgers 63

Rutgers got one of the best teams in college basketball into a rock fight and damn near pulled off the upset.

(6) Michigan 81, (3) Seton Hall 72

In a rematch of the 1989 national title game, the Wolverines again come out on top and move into the second weekend of action.

We’ll see you Thursday for the first batch of Sweet Sixteen games. What do you think about how the bracket has turned out?
