Miami is in the Sweet 16 for only the second time in school history. The last time they made it this far was in 2000, when they got bounced by Tulsa. The Hurricanes made this far by routing Pacific and surviving an Illinois scare in the last two rounds. However, they will be without a key piece this weekend. Center Reggie Johnson suffered a knee injury in the win over Illinois and did not travel to Washington, D.C., with the team. There is no timetable for his return, meaning he may not be available for the Final Four should Miami get that far.

Marquette had a much tougher time in the tournament. They needed a last-minute Davidson collapse to get out of the round of 64, and held off a Butler upset to make it past the first weekend. This is their third year in a row in the Sweet 16, but they haven't made the Elite Eight since 2003. They will look to end that drought this weekend.

Game time: 7:15 p.m. ET
