Every point is going to matter in this game that determines which team moves on to the Sweet 16.

The team will play the victor of Sunday night's game between the No. 9 seed Florida State Seminoles and No. 1 seed Xavier Musketeers., which will air on TNT at 5:40 p.m. Without him, the team couldn't convert on key possessions late in the game.

The Seminoles also exacted a measure of revenge on Xavier, which ended their season in this same round a year ago. In a game locked in a back-and-forth cycle, the Seminoles held Xavier without a field goal for the following two minutes, allowing them to come within five points of tying up the score with the Musketeers with five minutes in the game. The Seminoles were the No. 3 seed in last year's tournament, but were blown out by the 11th-seeded Musketeers in the second round. Xavier started to see the game slip away when the Musketeers' JP Macura picked up his fourth foul with nine minutes left. With just a minute remaining in the round of 32 matchup, the 'Noles had gained their first lead of the second half at 71-70 following a pull-up three-pointer by junior guard P.J. Savoy.

Most of the first half couldn't have gone much better for Florida State.

FSU scored the game's final seven points and finished the game on an 18-4 run.
