Did The Big Ten's NCAA Seeding Hold Up Against Other Leagues?

The No. 9 Michigan State Spartans are looking to advance in the 2017 NCAA Tournament with a win over No. 8 Miami (Fla.) on Friday night, but there could be some issues that hamper the ability for the Spartans to have success. MI advanced after the first round of the Midwest Region in Banker's Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis over Oklahoma State 91-90 in a game between seven and ten seeds. OSU has an National Basketball Association talent in Evans, one of the best shooters in conference history in Forte and the most improved player in Jeffrey Carroll. I was getting ready for the second half already. "It's them doing a good job letting me see the puck".

Nickname: Wolverines. Coach: John Beilein. Walton made two free throws with 10 seconds left to provide a four-point edge.

Liam Folkes, Nate Sucese and David Goodwin netted the early scores in a 4-1 victory over MI in the opening round of the Big Ten tournament on Thursday night at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit.

Michigan: The Wolverines certainly have momentum. I am not making the case that a nice conference tournament makes MI a better seed than Purdue who has been a more consistent team. (26 points, 11 assists) made five of his six 3-point baskets in the second half. He finished with 16 points on 6-11 shooting and four assists.

Miami Hurricanes enter their ninth NCAA Tournament appearance overall.

From Michigan's plane skidding off the runway before the Big Ten Tournament to winning four games in four days, nothing has been easy or routine. This is the season UCLA roared back into the spotlight because of what the Bruins could do when they have the basketball, with six players averaging in double figures. The Wolverines were 44 nationally in 3-point shooting percentage before tipoff, hitting 38.1 percent, and they got prolific production from beyond the arc from Derrick Walton (6-for-9), Zak Irvin (4-for-6), Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman (3-for-6) and Duncan Robinson (2-for-4).

So the Cowboys' season ends, ousted from the NCAA Tournament in the first round for the fifth straight time.

MI shook off a frustrating first half, marred by foul trouble and adjustments to OSU's fast-paced style of play, to hold a 41-40 lead at the break. Instead, they went from hot to hotter to don't-touch-the-stove territory.

Walton got what mattered most - the win - and he got the best of Evans on his final shot, driving on him with 54 seconds left for an 86-79 lead. If you're like me, you've been watching tourney action non-stop because, well, March Madness is the best time of the year. "We valued every possession".

The seventh-seeded Wolverines (25-11) set a school record for 3s in an NCAA Tournament game.

But the Wolverines rode their momentum to clinch the Big 10 title and a spot in Indianapolis to face the Oklahoma State Cowboys in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament. "I was able to win one and came back the next year and lost one. So we have similar games also". They were 16-for-29 for the game.

MI closed as a 2.5-point betting favorite today against Oklahoma State in a first round game and led by four points with the final seconds quickly ticking off the clock.
