Round of 16: Marquette vs. Miami, Fla., 6:15 p.m.

Marquette is taking the next three days to prepare for a hurricane-sized test in a University of Miami team which dominated the basketball-centric Atlantic Coast Conference.

Newsradio 620 WTMJ's "Voice of the Packers" Wayne Larrivee covered Miami during the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament.  Click here to read his preview of what Marquette will face.

In his postgame comments to his players, which was posted on Marquette Athletics' YouTube channel, head coach Buzz Williams challenged his players to give their all in preparing for the storm to come. 

"God gives you the same test over and over until you pass it, until you're 21, 41 or 61, whether you're a boy, a girl, whether you're black or your white.  Can we pass the Sweet 16 test?"

"How are we going to handle the preparation for that test?  We have to figure out what's on the next test."
