Sean and Archie Miller are headed to the Elite Eight together.

One had it easier than the other — and it probably wasn’t the one you’d expect.

Archie’s Dayton Flyers, the darlings of the 2014 NCAA tournament, took down another higher-seeded team, stiff-arming Stanford in Memphis Thursday night to reach the regional final for the first time since 1984.

Big brother Sean’s Arizona Wildcats, the top seed in the West, had a much tougher time getting through, laboring through most of their game against San Diego State before wearing down the Aztecs in Anaheim, Calif., to reach the Elite Eight for the second time in four years.

Already the first brothers to coach separate teams into the Sweet 16, they’re now a game away from the Final Four and, dare we say it, an all-brothers championship game in Texas.
