Michigan Wolverines vs. Louisville Cardinals NCAA Tournament Second Round Preview and Prediction

"But they did change the culture of our basketball team becoming a very humble group". Now they'll have to do it all over again Sunday.

Defense will likely be the difference for the Cardinals in this one, as MI made 16 three-pointers in the round of 64 and probably will be lucky to hit half as many here. We have a lot of momentum.

"When that cycle stopped and we hit the bottom of the machine", Foster said, "we started to become a pretty good basketball team". "They try to butter you up a little bit". Wilson has become the de facto backup at center with Donnal still a step too slow, but I expect one of Michigan's bigs to probably be in foul trouble tomorrow. They kept their foot on the gas. "They're extremely well coached at the fundamentals of the game, and then they have as tough a point guard as there is in the college game from a mental standpoint". The Cardinals took a 36-28 lead into the half of this one. That was more than enough to ensure the Cardinals, who had lost three of their previous five, of their fifth consecutive opening-round win. The lone miss came in 2016 when the Cardinals served a school-imposed postseason for alleged recruiting violations.

MI kept their great postseason run alive with arguably the most entertaining game of the first round.

Jackson is friends with several Michigan State players including freshman Miles Bridges.

It sure wasn't as easy as most expected, though.

Louisville also dominated the glass in the first half, totaling 20 rebounds to Michigan's 13.

Should Congress agree to Trump's budget, which isn't likely, more responsibility would be pushed down to the states. These cuts, which have been rumored for awhile, seem to fly in the face of Defense Secretary James Mattis' views.

Against Oklahoma State, the Wolverines were bombs away as they hit a season high 16 three pointers to stay in the game and eventually pull it off. MI point guard Derrick Walton Jr will hope to lead a team whose shooting remains hot. Johnson scored on a driving layup, Mathiang got deep in the paint for a three-point play and Adel drained a 3-pointer to push Louisville's lead to 15-8 at the 14:22 mark.

But it wasn't almost enough to pull the upset.

The Big Ten tourney champs are on an absolute tear, winners of seven in a row and 12 of 14 after it rallied to upset No. 2 seed Louisville on Sunday afternoon. The Cardinals, meanwhile, pulled away from the fifteenth-seeded Jacksonville State Gamecocks 78-63. Nice crowd for Louisville, though I think it's pretty evenly divided between UofL, UK, Michigan.

Leading for only eight minutes, seven seed MI upset two seed Louisville by score of 73-69.

"He surprised me once, my sophomore year, in the Elite Eight against Michigan State", Levitch told SN.

And in their NCAA Tournament opener against Oklahoma State, the seventh-seeded Wolverines drained 16 of 29 three-pointers en route to their 92-91 victory. The bad news? He'll have to guard Donovan Mitchell tomorrow.
