Michigan Has Little Left For Penn State This Time

Michigan Has Little Left For Penn State This Time

He's been as productive as any player in the country during the post-season, averaging almost 22 points in Michigan's five post-season games. They're experienced and have great freshmen at the point.

Oklahoma State's Jawun Evans heaved up a desperation - and meaningless 3-pointer - as time expired, burying the shot to bring the final margin, 92-91 in favor of MI.

Juwan Evans scored 23 points and Jeffrey Carroll had 19 to lead Oklahoma State (20-13), but the nation's eighth-highest scoring team just couldn't keep up with Michigan's 3-point barrage. With another year of Evans they could win a lot in the NCAA. "We felt we took the pedal off the metal a little bit in the second, but after a good first period it put us in a good spot to be successful the rest of the game". A full list of over-the-air radio affiliates is available here and the game can be streamed through the SSN Mobile App with a subscription. John Beilein's teams typically abide by a high-volume outside-shooting philosophy, but Friday took things to another level. Oklahoma State likes to get to the free throw line, where they rank fourth nationally shooting 78.7%.

Scoring: Team (74.3); Derrick Walton Jr. They have two All-Americans. This is a game that the Wolverines can win, but with the immediate aftermath of the plane crash and conference tournament now in the rear-view mirror, they must bring a new energy and spark into the madness. Kingsley didn't finish the season matching his Preseason SEC Player of the Year projection, but he's playing like one of best big men in the tournament right now. Probably not the position you want to be in headed into the Big Ten tournament, but what do I know?

The senior became just the second player in Big Ten history to record at least 25 points, 10 assists and five rebounds in an NCAA Tournament game. What that means is that the matchups we can expect are going to be very interesting, especially early on in the tournament. Bridges averages 16.7 points and 8.3 rebounds while Ward scores 13.7 and grabs 6.5 rebounds.

"I think we've had similar seasons in a lot of ways", Underwood said.

Wilson finished with 19 points (6-12 FG, 6-6 FT), five rebounds and four blocked shots. It's never great to have a season end. The Cowboys aren't good defensively and MI has improved their defense by leaps and bounds, since the beginning of the season.

Starting just after noon ET today, there's going to be more than 64 hours of meaningful college basketball played over the course of two days.

MI stands as the lone Big Ten ranked across the polls with even stodgy, Big Ten-hating Baseball America ranking them at 24th.

On keys to victory over Arizona State. "That's me", he said with a laugh. "I've still got this on my mind". Their physicality and inside play and [Sophie] Brunner is as good as they get. They both hit better than 42% of their looks from deep, which clears the lane for shifty superstar Juwan Evans to either pass or cut through and score himself.
