MI bounces Gophers from Big Ten tournament

They have more seniors than we have.

"I don't think they want to lose sight.as they go forward in their lives", he said about his players, "of how different that could have turned out". This team has had a remarkable, and certainly memorable, end of the year.

Wisconsin will play No. 9-seeded Virginia Tech Hokies in the Round of 64. He can do so many things at the defensive end of the floor.And Davon Reed is an All-Conference defensive player. They make a ton of them. MI is probably one of the most feared teams heading into the tournament.

The Badgers will still be an at-large tournament team, but Gard needs to find ways to open up his offense before the tournament or be faced with an early exit next week. Both teams finished the first half shooting lights-out; MI (24-11, 10-8 Big Ten) shot 59.1 percent from the field and 53.8 percent from outside, while Wisconsin shot 53.8 percent from the field and 57.1 percent from outside.

The Marquette women's basketball team closed out the first half of their Big East quarterfinal on a 13-4 run and never looked back beating Georgetown 80-66 at the Al McGuire Center. But again, the NCAA has all the answers.

"That's kind of the benefit for doing semi-decent in the regular season and conference play, " Hayes said.

Minnesota's turnaround becomes no less remarkable despite its Big Ten Tournament stay ending Saturday. Same for the boys the following week.




It is Miami's ninth appearance in the NCAA Tournament, and third in six years under Larranaga. "By far, I can say with 100 percent certainty that this is the most competitive bracket I've seen in those five years". The culprit in the dilemma is the NCAA, which won't allow some flex scheduling for its first round women's games.

Irvin also had one of the game's biggest plays.

A lock to make the NCAAs, Wisconsin likely needs to get to at least get to the Big Ten title game on Sunday for a chance to get a top-four seed. "We definitely knew that we owed them one today, so we tried to not only match that intensity but surpass it". Wisconsin, meanwhile, was held to 22-for-56 shooting and had zero bench points.

And it's been evident in every game since the Wolverines' late arrival Thursday morning at the Verizon Center.

There was more grit and more determination in the final act of this wonderful story. Colthorp hasn't let up just because he now is on the news staff at WDIV-TV in Detroit. "John has done a heck of a job over the time he's been there". MI threatened to pull away twice in the opening session, but Wisconsin answered both times. Rush thought he performed well in front of the various National Football League scouts and is hoping he'll be drafted at the end of next month. Wisconsin was unable to bring the game within seven points during Michigan's final push. Gholston has carefully performed exactly as the Buccaneers have asked during his first three pro seasons. "You focus a little bit more", Purdue coach Matt Painter said about what Michigan's been through. Showalter was 7 of 14 from the arc over his last three games.
