While the Kansas Jayhawks are aiming for their third straight Elite Eight, the Clemson Tigers are hoping to make it back there for the first time in nearly 40 years.
The three-time national champion and top-seeded Jayhawks will take on the fifth-seeded Tigers at 7:07 p.m. Friday in the Midwest Region semifinals at CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Nebraska.
The game will mark the 31st Sweet 16 appearance for Kansas, who last won a national title in 2008.
The Jayhawks won their NCAA-record 14th Big 12 regular season championship before winning their 11th Big 12 tournament title in the days leading up to the NCAA Tournament.
After dropping their final regular season game on the road to Oklahoma State, Kansas (29-7) has now won five straight, including their NCAA Tournament victories over Pennsylvania and Seton Hall.
Clemson (25-9) is playing in its fourth Sweet 16 and first since 1997, although their 1990 appearance was later vacated due to NCAA sanctions. The school’s lone Elite Eight berth came in 1980.
The Tigers finished the regular season tied for third place in the ACC standings and then fell to eventual overall No. 1 NCAA Tournament seed Virginia in the ACC tournament semifinals.
In order to reach the Sweet 16, Clemson beat No. 12 New Mexico State in the first round and then routed No. 4 Auburn 84-53 in the second round on Sunday.
The winner of the Kansas-Clemson game will face the winner of the Midwest Region’s late Friday game between No. 2 Duke and No. 11 Syracuse.
