The Orange are in the Sweet 16 for the fourth time in the past five years, and the 21st time in school history. They breezed through the early rounds, stomping Montana and surviving a second-half rally from Cal to get to this point.

The Hoosiers had a bit more drama in their tourney run. After blowing by James Madison, they had a wire-to-wire slugfest with Temple, who had the game tied with a minutes to go. It wasn't until a 3-pointer by Victor Oladipo and pair of free throws by Christian Watford that Indiana finally sealed the victory.

These are both storied programs loaded with talent, coached by guys who both plan on cutting down the nets in April. It's shaping up to be one of the best matchups this weekend.

Game time: 9:45 p.m. ET

TV: CBS

Location: Verizon Center, Washington, D.C.
