Villanova (29-7) is back in the Elite Eight for the first time since they won the national title in 2018. The Wildcats maintained a comfortable lead for most of the second half against the No. 11 seed Michigan Wolverines on Thursday night and ultimately won 63-55.

Houston (32-5) is one victory away from getting back to the Final Four for the second season in a row despite losing two of their top players early in the regular season. The Cougars are just a No. 5 seed, but they’re beloved as one of the top teams in the country by the advanced metrics like KenPom, which rates them as college basketball’s second best team.
