Big Ten reaches goal of becoming hockey power

Big Ten reaches goal of becoming hockey power

He followed that up by hitting 6 of 8 against Michigan State. The past five times the Wolverines have made the NCAA Tournament, they've reliably had a top-30 offense.

And so it was.

The Michigan Wolverines bench reacts in the first half against the Michigan State Spartans during semifinals of the Big 10 Basketball Tournament at Madison Square Garden on March 3, 2018 in New York City. Now his attention is trained on winning a fourth game in four days in the Big 10's first Broadway run. If you witness these games we're having right now and how NY loves basketball, they love college basketball. "Sometimes there is residual action, so we had to find different ways".

MI did all the things Tom Izzo teams made famous in March to a Tom Izzo team in March - snapping Sparty's 13-game winning streak and reaching the Big Ten tourney championship game for a second straight season.

There are a lot of reasons why the MI basketball team is rolling right now, but chief among is Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman. The senior guard launched a trey as the shot clock expired with 2:48 remaining in the game.

"We weren't really alive on defense, with our legs", Keady said.

Two dunks, a layin and a short jumper later, the Maize and Blue had the announced crowd of 21,711 at Chicago's United Center going insane.

Added Beilein: "It was an ugly three, but it was pretty to MI".

The redshirt sophomore translated that energy to the defensive end with an emphatic block and corralling two, hard-fought rebounds between back-to-back possessions - both of which led to pushing matches after whistles.

Mathias said: "We were talking about how we'd had a lot of turnovers (seven) and our defense wasn't connecting like it should be, and we were still up. We weren't backing down". We just ran into a buzzsaw in MI. There were two scrums after hard fouls, a technical foul was called against the Spartans' forward Nick Ward and referee Gene Steratore - yeah, the guy who led the officiating crew at the Super Bowl - lectured both Tom Izzo of Michigan State and Beilein after the nonsense. Michigan shot 44 percent compared to Michigan State's 38.

Joshua Langford's recent struggles continued, as he finished with just two points.

The early smack talk was only a temporary reprieve from the overarching malaise of the first half, though. The Wolverines did a much better job of sealing off after MSU misses and wound up out-rebounding the Spartans, 36-33, overall. The No. 2 Spartans shouldn't feel so bad about their winless bouts vs. John Beilein's squad: No. 15 MI is finding ways to win that would lead any logical person to think another Sweet 16 run is in the works here.

"I think that's really exciting for our league".

If Michigan (27-7, 13-5) can continue to defend as well as it has during its current eight-game win streak, the Wolverines will be a tough out in the NCAA tournament.

Michigan State never got closer than five points the rest of the way.

Wisconsin had built narrow leads in the first half and a few minutes after halftime.

The Wolverines looked like they might be on their way to slamming the door up nine and on a 2-on-1 break, but Miles Bridges picked off a Charles Matthews pass and allowed McQuaid to can another 3, cutting the lead to six with 2:07 left. The Wolverines beat the Spartans 75-64. Michigan State fouled, turned the ball over and couldn't buy a bucket to even cause a scare.
