St. Louis – St. Louis is hosting two Sweet 16 men's college basketball games tonight. The winners will advance to the Elite Eight regional championships.

Tennessee plays Ohio State at 6:07 p.m., then Northern Iowa plays Michigan State at 8:37.

Michigan goes into tonight's game without star point guard Kalin Lucas, who was injured during the second-round game against Maryland. That leaves all eyes on Korie Lucious, who sank a 3-pointer at the buzzer Sunday, sending the Spartans to the Sweet 16.

In Houston tonight, number-one seed Duke plays Purdue, and Baylor plays tiny St. Mary's College of California.

The Sweet 16 winners will advance to the regional finals tomorrow and Sunday.
