This tourney is absolutely nuts…
The Wolverines almost put up triple digits against the Aggies to continue their dominant run in March. Michigan had two players score 20-plus as the Wolverines out played the Aggies, who looked like a middle school team. The combination of stellar defense and a hot touch from downtown proved to the country that Michigan may be the most dangerous team from the Big Ten. A team that has always performed well in the tournament, coach John Beilein continues to lead his squad through the West Region.
Michigan’s frustrating defense held Texas A&M star, TJ Starks to shoot 2-11 from the field and just 5 points in a disappointing showing from all players on Texas A&M. The Aggies shot 3-15, YES, 3-15, from behind the arc.
Michigan, on the other hand, went 14-24 from downtown. That is 42 points just from behind the arc, more than half of what Texas A&M had in the entire game.
Michigan will play Florida State in the Elite Eight with a shot to return to the Final Four for the first time since 2013.
