March Madness 2013: Game time, TV schedule for Miami vs. Marquette

USA TODAY Sports

The Sweet 16 officially tips off on Thursday with Marquette vs. Miami. See where you can catch the action.

The No. 3 Marquette Golden Eagles and No. 2 Miami Hurricanes square off in the first game of the Sweet 16 on Thursday.

Marquette had to do a lot of sweating to get this far. They appeared to be dead in the water in the second round, when Davidson led by seven points with 90 seconds to go. However, three three-pointers in just 50 seconds and a last-second layup by Vander Blue gave them the win.

They went on to another nail-biter against Butler, as Blue once again bailed them out of a second-half hole and they held on to beat the Bulldogs, 74-72.

Miami easily took care of Pacific, but had a little more trouble with Illinois. They trailed late in the game, but Shane Larkin, one of the hottest hands in the postseason, made a clutch three-pointer with 60 seconds left that gave them the lead for good and sent them to the Sweet 16 for just the second time in school history.
