Boston Red Sox skipper Alex Cora is tuned into the March Madness festivities.

The Miami Hurricanes men’s basketball team defeated the Indiana Hoosiers 85-69 in their second-round matchup. With the win, the Hurricanes advanced to their second consecutive Sweet 16 for the first time in the program’s history. They’re also the last remaining ACC team left in the tournament following Sunday’s bracket-shattering night.

This prompted Cora, a University of Miami alum, to shoutout the Hurricanes on Twitter

Before Cora embarked on his major league career, which lasted 14 seasons, he played three seasons for the Hurricanes. The former infielder helped lead the Hurricanes to the College World Series in 1996 before being drafted in the third round of that year’s MLB draft by the Los Angeles Dodgers.

As for the No. 5 Miami basketball squad, they’ll prepare to face off against the top-ranked University of Houston Cougars in the Sweet 16. They’ll meet Friday at T-Mobile Arena in Kansas City.
