Sorry we didn’t have Friday’s start times up here. There was some personal dealings to handle. But, here’s the schedule for your weekend viewing of the Elite Eight, which includes just one No. 1 seed, and some notes from Friday:

Ding, dong, the Pac-12 is dead. Oregon fought against Louisville, but just didn’t have the depth of talent the Cardinals can bring in a 77-69 loss Friday. The Oregonian’s Adam Jude says if the Ducks end up going on a strong run with their basketball program, they will look back at this year’s 28-9 team as the starting point.

What’s most crazy about Oregon’s run? Washington had control of the Pac-12 Tournament quarterfinal against Oregon, only to lose it in the final minute. Had the Ducks lost that game, they would have been a very low seed and barely sneaked into the tournament.

> Cinderella also called it a tournament when Florida Gulf Coast was bounced by Florida, 62-50. CBS Sports asked each Florida Gulf Coast player what the tourney run meant to them.

> Kansas lost to Michigan 87-85 in overtime. Up three in the closing seconds, Kansas inexplicably did not foul and Trey Burke knocked down a 3-pointer with 4.3 second left to force over time.

> Duke handled Michigan State 71-61 in a Blueblood battle.
