CORAL GABLES, Fla. - Help send off both the Miami Hurricanes men's and women's basketball teams as they depart for the NCAA Championship this week.

Fresh off its sweep of the ACC regular-season and tournament titles, the men's team (27-6) will leave Wednesday at 1 p.m. from the BankUnited Center. Miami, a No. 2 seed in the East Region, will face No. 15 Pacific at 2:10 p.m. ET (TNT) Friday in Austin, Texas.

The women's team (21-10) is making its third consecutive trip to the NCAA tournament. A No. 8 seed in Iowa City, the Canes will play No. 9 Iowa at 7:30 p.m. ET (ESPN2) on Sunday. Head coach Katie Meier's squad will depart from the BankUnited Center immediately following Friday's men's game (approximately 4:30 p.m.).

Both Miami's men's and women's basketball teams are in the NCAA tournament together for only the second time in program history (first time in 1998).
