Wolverines win Big Ten Tournament

No. 24 UW builds some momentum Michigan keeps rolling in Big Ten; Indiana knocked out
Craig Ferguson | 13 March, 2017, 01:13

MI now awaits its seeding in the NCAA Tournament, which will be announced shortly.

And four games later, MI is your 2017 Big Ten Tournament champion after the No. 8 Wolverines (24-11, 10-8 B1G) beat No. 2 Wisconsin (25-9, 12-6 B1G), 71-56, on Sunday afternoon.

MI may be able to claim to be the Big Ten's hottest team, but 23rd-ranked Wisconsin has made it clear no squad in the conference has played better over the last week.

The Michigan men's basketball team wrapped a magical run by beating Wisconsin to win the Big Ten Tournament. The result prompted the only offensive struggle of the game for either team as MI harassed the Badgers into 1-of-10 shooting to start the decisive half.

"I randomly wore this hat to the Minnesota game - which was our last regular season game and senior night", Coplien said, describing himself as "incredibly superstitious". He popped up and they started jumping up and down, ending this wild, insane story. "Because now they have this, like, 'We nearly died" type of thing. "We don't want to run around like spring chickens or anything like that".

Wisconsin's Nigel Hayes sensed this Big Ten Tournament might turn out the way it did. MI could have folded many times throughout the year, but didn't. It's just a matter of 'Let's do what we do better.' There weren't any radical changes, anything outside the box. "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". Time and television are to be determined.

After hammering Rutgers and upsetting Maryland, Collins said he isn't anxious Saturday's letdown will spoil the momentum his team built in the conference tournament. The 23 victories for Northwestern is a school record.

"What I told them is, 'You're going to come back 20 years from now and that trophy is going to sit there and you're going to tell your grandkids about those five days and what happened". He can do so many things at the defensive end of the floor.And Davon Reed is an All-Conference defensive player.

No wins in March are easy and the Spartans found that out the tough way against Minnesota in the conference tournament's quarterfinals. Wisconsin won 68-64 at home on January 17 against MI and lost on the road 64-58 on February 16.

Northwestern 72, Maryland 64 • Northwestern roared into the semifinal round with an upset of Maryland (24-8).

For the 20 year in a row, Wegmans is ranked among Fortune magazine's top 100 best companies to work for . The number two spot is up from past year , when the chain was fourth on the list.

MI is hanging on to a 51-45 lead at the under-8 media timeout of the second half.

"That's something we have to be better with", McIntosh said. They don't seem to care who is scoring or who is in the game.

"These guys understand that's where it starts". "When we're playing on both ends of the court, playing together and having fun, we can be pretty good". I think this group has taken ownership of that.

MI led for much of Saturday's contest, jumping out to a 15-5 advantage and continuing in front 47-36 at halftime.

MI shot 53.8% from three-point range (7 of 13) and 59.1% overall (13 of 22) and led by only one point at the break.

And Happ finally found his range at the free-throw line.

Referencing Michael Scott from The Office, Radtke said the band isn't superstitious - just a little "stitious" - but members also aren't willing to risk a loss because they broke from the weekend's routine. Showalter had eight points in the run and Hayes had a basket and made 1 of 2 free throws.

And it's been evident in every game since the Wolverines' late arrival Thursday morning at the Verizon Center. They did have 14 offensive rebounds, but many of those came from Ethan Happ grabbing his own miss. The top 10 senior athletes with the highest grade points from each league school who have lettered in two sports are honored.

The Badgers led by 17 at halftime and were really never threatened in the second half. With that cushion, MI started to make its move as Irvin and Wilson connected twice. Wisconsin outrebounded them 36 to 27, and only guard Scottie Lindsey scored in double digits. U-M averages 74.9 points per game on offense this season while allowing 65.8 on defense.
