With the victory over Ohio State, Houston is back in the Sweet Sixteen for the first time since the Hakeem Olajuwon/Clyde Drexler, Phi Slama Jama era (1984).

The status of PJ Washington, who hasn't played for Kentucky since injuring his foot in the SEC tournament semifinals on March 16, is still unknown for Friday's Sweet 16 game vs. Houston.

Kentucky ended Wofford's season in the NCAA Tournament with a stifling defensive effort on Fletcher Magee, carrying the Wildcats to the regional semifinals with a 62-56 victory Saturday.

Predictions

From AthlonSports: "There will be plenty of fireworks, excitement, and points scored in this game. It will be a back-and-forth affair from start to finish with plenty of highlight-reel plays. But in the end, Houston does just enough on defense to escape with a close win and move on to the Elite Eight."  Prediction: Houston 78, Kentucky 77
