NCAA Tourney: Michigan heads to Final Four in role of upset stopper

Seminoles swarm overwhelm Zags with committee approach

MI junior guard Charles Matthews has apparently stayed off of the internet since the NCAA Tournament began.

Put another way, this team wins because they get buckets better than anyone in recent memory has gotten buckets.

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, Michigan is favored in this game, as the Wolverines are getting odds of -4.5 points against Florida State.

Hamilton dismissed questions about the decision not to foul while down four.

Instead, it set the stage for one more furious Florida State comeback. You've seen how these kids operate under pressure. The Ramblers have defeated Miami, Tennessee, Nevada, and Kansas State in their four tournament wins.

MI? I get it. Loyola's ride has been even more improbable. But the rest of it?

The University of MI men's basketball team set a single-season school record with its 32nd win and advanced to its eighth Final Four as the third-seeded Wolverines won a defensive gem over No. 9 seed Florida State by a score of 58-54 Saturday night (March 24) at the Staples Center.

The magical run for the Seminoles ends in heartbreak in L.A., while MI will head to the Final Four in San Antonio for the first time since 2013 and will face Loyola-Chicago.

"Nobody knew who this team was coming into the season", said Associate Head Coach Stan Jones.

Time: 8:49 p.m. MI is moving on to the Final Four despite not playing their best and they deserve credit for that. And by doing all the hard things, the Wolverines muscled their way to the Final Four.

MI forward Moritz Wagner cuts down the net after MI beat Florida State in an NCAA men's college basketball tournament regional final Saturday, March 24, 2018, in Los Angeles. The Wolverines held off a late charge from the Seminoles (23-12), who had already knocked off three higher-seeded opponents on their school's longest NCAA Tournament run since 1993.

So, while this is true. When you think about John Beilein teams, you think about the 5-out motion offense and the 1-3-1 zone, all of which are tough to scout and unique to Beilein.

"We finished the season being one of the worst three-point defensive teams in the league". MI only just recently crept back into the top 100 in three-point shooting.

And with MI up by four, Florida State allowed the Wolverines to dribble out the clock without fouling again. It is more than 2,200 miles from Ann Arbor to Los Angeles, but the legions of Wolverines fans crammed into Staples Center made this game feel like it was at Crisler Arena on Michigan's campus.

The Wolverines hit 14 3-point shots Thursday to beat No. 7 Texas A&M 99-72. Shut Gonzaga down, like THAT?

"That might change in the second half, but at the same time, we've got to understand we may not make shots, [but] we're still going to win the game with our defense". Florida State has a depth advantage, but they'll have to continue to make it count like they have all Tournament or it won't matter.
