Louisville vs. MI - 3/19/17 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction

"So it's just trying to get a good feel for a lot of the sets that they run".

What: No. 9 Michigan State (19-14) vs.

"This whole week he (Izzo) has been a mixture of a lot of love and a lot of getting after you", Winston said.

March Madness 2017 continues on Friday, March 17, as Miami meets Michigan State in a Midwest Regional game at BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

While Michigan made only five shots inside the arc in the second half, it went 11 of 15 from 3-point range - drawing increasingly louder roars from the crowd and more bewilderment from first-year Cowboys coach Brad Underwood. They were a step quicker than MI.

But, the Wolverines share something in common with the Cowboys too.

Things change when threes start falling. It's one of the better jobs in the Big Ten. Zak Irvin followed with another.

The contest was the final in the careers of seniors Phil Forte and Leyton Hammonds. Abdur-Rahkman nailed the ensuing free throw to complete the four-point play, putting MI up 34-32 with 3:27 left in the half.

MI shoots the lights out to win March Madness thriller
Aided by a Muhammad-Ali Abdur Rahkman four-point play, the Wolverines would eventually seize control of the game once again. The Spartans started three freshmen against Miami with a fourth, guard Cassius Winston, playing extended minutes.

Evans did everything in his power to will the Pokes to victory. While he had 10 points, he had suffered through a lackluster first half - at least by his coach's standards. He also dishes out 12 assists and pulling down seven rebounds.

Cincinnati also advanced in Sacramento as Troy Caupain dropped in 23 points and Kyle Washington added 16 to highlight a 75-61 win against Kansas State. "We shot 55 percent in the NCAA Tournament and just lost in the first round, outrebounded an opponent 40-21 and you lose".

On Saturday afternoon in Tulsa, after a news conference moderator introduced him by explaining how his Spartans have a "date" with top-seeded Kansas on Sunday for the right to play in the Sweet 16, Izzo took over from there. They pushed it out to a 59-54 lead with 14:02 left. The game resumed with no adjustment to the clock and with nine seconds to play, Kansas tied the game and sent it to overtime.

MI went up 92-88 with 3.7 seconds left after a pair of D.J. Wilson free throws iced the game.

Miami led 17-5 before Michigan State put together a 28-6 run, holding the Hurricanes to three field goals during a 12-minute span. "They play through him probably about as much as they play through well, I guess Denzel (Valentine) previous year, but they put the ball in his hands a lot to make decisions". Mitchell leads the team with an average of 15.5 points and 2.7 assists per game while Mathiang leads the team in rebounding with 6.1 boards per game this season. Abdur-Rahkman each had 16 points, including 3-of-6 from three. There were only four combined turnovers in the second half.

Oklahoma State hands in their face or not, the Wolverines wouldn't miss.

It's like Miami's guards were meant to Michigan State's first NCAA tournament lesson.

In a wild turn of events, the buzzer beating heave by Evans changed money in a lot of hands as the spread was only MI by 2.5. He did, however, give Oklahoma State betting-backers a victory. Underwood has relit the fire underneath the fan base once again.
