2013 NCAA Tournament schedule and bracket: Are Indiana and Miami on a collision course?

The experts think DC could be primed for an epic match-up in the Elite Eight.


With the NCAA Tournament down to its final 16 teams, proceedings will move to four regional sites that will host two Sweet 16 games and one Elite Eight match-up. If things go the right way for fans of basketball in general, Washington D.C. could be set up for an epic Elite Eight match-up between the Indiana Hoosiers and Miami Hurricanes.

It's not a given that the teams will meet just yet. The No. 2 Hurricanes, a giant killer early in the regular and conference seasons, will have to get past the Marquette Golden Eagles. The No. 1 Hoosiers don't have an easy task in front of them either: a date with the No. 4 Syracuse Orange.

But it seems as if CBS Sports' college basketball experts believe we're set up for an epic Elite Eight match-up in our nation's capital. The experts unanimously give a nod to the Hurricanes in their match-up against Marquette. Only Matt Norlander disagreed with his compatriots, taking the Orange against the Indiana Hoosiers.
