There are three West Region second round games set to be played on Sunday, starting with second-seeded Oklahoma against No. 10 VCU.

Playing close to home in OKC, the Sooners cruised to an 82-68 win over CSU Bakersfield yesterday. National Player of the Year candidate Buddy Hield paved the way with 27 points.

VCU took care of the No. 7 seed, Oregon State, 75-67. The Rams were led by JeQuan Lewis' near-triple-double (21 points, eight assists, seven rebounds) and Mo Alie-Cox's 20 points and eight boards.

The winner of this game plays the winner of Texas A&M-Northern Iowa.

Date: Sunday, March 20

Time: 5:15 p.m.

TV Channel: CBS

Location: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Announcers: Carter Blackburn, Mike Gminski and Jaime Maggio

Opening Betting Line: Oklahoma -7Prediction: VCU is capable of playing with the big boys, and their style can cause fits for any team. However, the Rams hadn't beaten a Power Five opponent all year until Friday.

Oklahoma is the best team VCU has faced all season, and the play of Hield, Isaiah Cousins and company will be too much to overcome.
