For the second year in a row, the Michigan Wolverines are headed to the Elite Eight. They earned the trip after winning a nail-biter against Tennessee 73-71.
After being a close game for the first ten minutes, Michigan started to build a lead. With 10:56 left in the game, the Wolverines were up by 15 points and looked like they were about to run away with the game. However, the Volunteers would not go down easy. They were mounting a comeback in the closing minutes and made it a one-point game. After Nik Stauskas went to the free throw line and
Forward Jordan Morgan led Michigan in scoring with 15 points and tallied seven rebounds. Stauskas helped out on offense with a 15-point performance. Glen Robinson III also made great contributions to Michigan's Friday Night victory with 13 points and five rebounds.
