The men's NCAA Sweet 16 saw the defending champions, Louisville Cardinals, bounced from the tourney while this year's Cinderella team, the Dayton Flyers, continue its march to history. There were also some memorable sneaker moments. San Diego State featured a plethora of Air Jordans, as the team had their season end at the hands of PAC-12 power Arizona. The Florida Gators moved on in the tournament, which means we get to see more of Wil Yeguette's Nike LeBron XI PEs. In the most anticipated matchup of the Sweet 16, Nike sponsored Kentucky outlasted their instate rival and adidas sponsored Louisville in another thrilling game. The Young 'Cats, led by Julius Randle in his Nike Kobe 9, have hit their stride in the tourney and look like legitimate championship contenders. To see the best of the rest, check out our list of The Sweetest Sneakers From the NCAA Sweet 16.
