The Sweet 16 of the 2017 NCAA Tournament brought some incredible performances as teams looked to move on to the Elite 8 and continue their March Madness dance.
Some of the best moments of March Madness have taken place in this round, so let's take a look at who stood out in the Sweet 16.
Here's how the games turned out:
Gonzaga 61, West Virginia 58
Kansas 98, Purdue 66
Oregon 69, Michigan 68
Xavier 73, Arizona 71
North Carolina 92, Butler 80
South Carolina 70, Baylor 50
Kentucky 86, UCLA 75
Florida 84, Wisconsin 83 (OT)
Here's a look at some of the best performances in the 2017 Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament:
Tyler Dorsey — Oregon
In the first game of the night, we saw Oregon go blow to blow with Michigan in an exciting Sweet 16 matchup. One of the keys to the game was the timely three-point shooting from Tyler Dorsey, who hit 5-of-7 three-point attempts and scored 20 points overall.
Dorsey was a major factor in the Ducks moving past the Wolverines.
Jordan Bell — Oregon
Dorsey wasn't the only key player for the Ducks — Jordan Bell put together a massive performance in the win.
Bell recorded a 16-point, 13-rebound double-double, including four offensive rebounds, two of which came in the final moments, helping Oregon clinch the victory over Michigan.
Jordan Mathews — Gonzaga

Mathews came up big for the Zags in the clutch. Trailing by one with 1:08 on the clock, West Virginia was at the free throw line. A missed shot was eventually corraled by the Mountaineers, but Josh Perkins blocked Nathan Adrian's layup, leading to a fast break. Mathews drained a corner thre to put Gonzaga up by two, 60-58, with around 50 seconds left. The three-pointer stood as the go-ahead bucket in the win.
Mathews finished the game with 13 points on 4-of-12 shooting, but hit 3-of-8 three-point attempts.
Przemek Karnowski — Gonzaga
Outstanding beard aside, Karnowski put together an impressive performance for Gonzaga. He was a beast in the post all game, pressuring the West Virginia defense and drawing early fouls.
Karnowski finished with 13 points, five rebounds and 2 assists, and was 6-of-8 from the field.
Frank Mason III and Devonte Graham — Kansas
It's tough to separate the play from Kansas' two guards — both scored 26 points in a rampage over Purdue Thursday night. Mason added seven rebounds, seven assists and a steal, while Graham added a pair of assists and a steal. Oh, and both combined for just three turnovers and 2 fouls, and shot a combined 16-of-26 from the field, 9-of-14 from three-point range, and 11-of-14 from the free throw line.
Josh Jackson — Kansas

Talk about doing it all. Jackson was his usual self — all over the court with a 15-point, 12-rebound double-double, adding in a pair of assists, four steals and a bock. But his energy and big-play capabilities are what continue to stand out for this human highlight.
Allonzo Trier — Arizona

The first player on this list from a losing team, it's hard to overlook what Trier did in Arizona's loss to Xavier. Trier scored 15 of his 19 points in the second half as Arizona attempted to fend off the upset-minded Musketeers. His efforts fell short, but for most of the second half, Trier looked like one of the best players in the tournament.
Trevon Bluiett — Xavier
Where Allonzo Trier tried to lead his team to victory, Trevon Bluiett actually accomplished the feat. Bluiett was remarkable on the night — he scored 25 points, 18 in the first half, and continued the blistering pace he's set so far in the tournament.
Joel Berry II — North Carolina
The UNC point guard put on a show against Butler, recording a game-high 26 points while shooting 8-of-13 from the field and knocking down 7-of-9 free throw attempts, overcoming a potentially scary looking ankle roll late in the game to help the Tar Heels advance.
Justin Jackson — North Carolina
Berry's teammate also put on a show in North Carolina's comfortable victory. He scored 24 points, grabbed five rebounds and had a team-high five assists in the 92-80 victory.
Sindarius Thornwell — South Carolina
The South Carolina star continues to perform i the NCAA Tournament. His latest effort? A 24-point, six rebound game in South Carolina's 70-50 win over Baylor.
De'Aaron Fox — Kentucky
In what might have been the single most impressive performance of the tournament, De'Aaron Fox went off on the UCLA Bruins, scoring 39 points, shooting 13-of-20 from the field and 13-of-15 from the free throw line.
Malik Monk — Kentucky
The second fiddle to Fox's huge game, Malik Monk's strong showing was overshadowed by his teammate. Monk scored 21 points and shot 4-of-9 from three-point range.
KeVaughn Allen — Florida
In the nightcap, Allen broke out of his slump to score 35 points, helping the Gators take down the Badgers. Allen shot 11-of-24 from the field and 9-of-10 from the free throw line.
Zak Showalter — Wisconsin

The senior guard scored 14 points, grabbed 7 rebounds and picked up 4 steals in the game, but his biggest play was an overtime-forcing runner three-pointer to tie the game up with 2 seconds left. To cap it, Showalter threw the "discount double-check" championship belt celebration at its creator, Aaron Rodgers, who was in attendance.
Chris Chiozza — Florida
While Showalter's buzzer-beater was epic, Chiozza and Florida got the last laugh as his own court-to-court buzzer-beater three-pointer won the game for the Gators. Chiozza scrored just eight points in the game, but his defense all through the game can't be overlooked.
