Michigan is back in the city after an unexpected run. The Wolverines, an 11 seed, are playing in their fifth straight Sweet 16 after beating 6 seed Colorado State 75-63 on Thursday and 3 seed Tennessee 76-68 on Saturday night. Both games were in Indianapolis.
Villanova, a 2 seed playing in Pittsburgh, took down the 7 seed Buckeyes. In the first round, the Wildcats topped 15 seed Delaware 80-60.

Michigan last played the Wildcats seven months after their national title matchup, at Villanova, with the Wolverines dominating 73-46.
