Sixteen games highlight the action over the next two days in the men’s NCAA basketball tournament. Here’s an item you may want to keep by your side as you watch games this weekend. It takes a look at how the seed matchups have played out in the Round of 32 since 2000 (the last 13 tournaments). Also listed is how well each seed has done in the round of 32 since 2000. (Based on these numbers, keep an eye on 10th seeded Iowa State versus Ohio State, and the two 12 seeds, Oregon and California.)

Here’s the seed matchups from the Round of 32 since 2000.
