UM Receives No. 7 Seed, Draws Oklahoma State for NCAA Opener

UM Receives No. 7 Seed, Draws Oklahoma State for NCAA Opener

The Michigan-Oklahoma State victor will advance to the second round to face the victor of No. 2 seed Louisville and No. 15 seed Jacksonville State on Sunday (March 19) for a spot in the Midwest Region semifinals at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri.

With a middle-of-the pack seed, there will be no heavy expectations. Never quite with so much inexperience.

Make it 20 in a row. He's not something we've had in the past.

What do you think of the matchup?

That's points and rebounds. "We had some shots early in the paint (that) we needed to see go in ... to find some energy and we just weren't able to do that". "We've just got to plug in the different pieces now".

The Cavaliers (22-10, 11-7 Atlantic Coast Conference), throughout most of the season, have maintained their prowess as one of the best defensive units in the nation.

Coach John Calipari and players usually head to his house after returning to watch the Selection Show, but weren't back in time this year to discover they're headed to Indianapolis - at least, not in front of assembled media stationed in the coach's living room. Blame fatigue from the two previous games if you want, or even blame it on the late finish in the Maryland win. But the Jayhawks aren't as overwhelming as their record. These two split the season series, with both home teams winning.

Cris Carter: Why Tony Romo to the Texans could threaten the Patriots
Remember, the Browns have the number one pick overall, and they just earned a few higher round picks by pulling off this deal. I'd be surprised if we see Osweiler playing for the Browns in the fall, because this trade wasn't about acquiring Osweiler .

MI sophomore center Moritz Wagner was slowed down by foul trouble in the quarterfinals against Purdue, but got off to a quick start against Minnesota. Wednesday's frightening situation involving the team plane sliding off a runway in Ann Arbor has been the story of the week, but surely MI was playing well enough already to make this run a possibility.

"It really comes down to matchups", Izzo said. Sitting at 4-6 in the Big Ten, the players seem at a loss, frustrated by their inability to consistently turn points of emphasis (defense; execution down the stretch) into on-court results.

MSU isn't better than Kansas. In order to keep open dialogue, there's not a situation or an environment where you can come in and they're going to say, 'This is what they're saying about you.' That's not the way this committee works, nor should it work.

I haven't been good at calling Wisconsin.

This season was one in which MI was an afterthought, both nationally and in conference play.

"I'm always going to remember it", said senior guard, Seth Allen.

Miami is coached by Jim Larranaga, who coached the George Mason team that upset the Spartans in the first round 11 years ago.
