Villanova prepares for Miamia in the Sweet 16. (WPVI)

The Villanova Wildcats got in some last minute practice Wednesday before their Sweet 16 match-up with Miami.

The Wildcats are finally back in the Sweet 16 for the first time in seven years.

You would think they are just satisfied to be here, but that is not the case as they are eyeing the Final Four in Houston.

They are getting ready to take on Miami at 7:10 p.m. Thursday in Louisville, Kentucky.

Nova has been dominating teams during the tournament, but head coach Jay Wright is trying to keep them focused on Miami and not getting caught up on the Big Dance on national TV.

He had a simple message for his team that is to play with no fear.

"We looked at the worst case scenario and we could handle the worst case scenario so let's just move on and play basketball," guard Josh Hart said.

"Have no fear in losing as long as we go try to play Villanova basketball for 40 minutes then whatever the end result is we'll be satisfied with it. If we do that and we play Villanova basketball for 40 minutes we know we'll be successful and we know there will be a good result in the end," guard Ryan Arcidiacono said.

Coach Wright says the most important thing for him at this point is to make sure this run doesn't end for his seniors, Arcidiacono and center Daniel Ochefu. He wants to keep it going for them because while he will get another shot at this, Wright says those two will not.
