03/18/2017 04:15 PM

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – The #2-seeded Louisville Cardinals are one day away from playing the #7-seeded Michigan Wolverines in the second round of the NCAA Men’s Tournament.

The two teams will tip-off at 12:10 p.m. ET inside Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Sunday.

UofL is coming off a 78-63 win over #15-seeded Jacksonville St. on Friday.

Meanwhile, Michigan is coming off a thrilling 92-91 win over #10-seeded Oklahoma St. on Friday. In that match-up, the Wolverines shot 51.8% from the field, going 29-of-56. In fact, they hit 16 three-pointers in the game.

The Wolverines are arguably one of the hottest teams in college basketball, having won their last six games.

But, Louisville has had their number in the past. The Cards have won all three previous meetings between the two teams, which includes the 2013 National Championship Game.
