Michigan Hockey: Michigan Sweeps Wisconsin, Advances To Big Ten Semifinals

The Michigan men's basketball team gutted out a victory Thursday despite getting in foul trouble and blowing a lead

Third-seeded MI ended the regular season on a run of 10-3-1, and both Penn State and Minnesota will approach the NCAA selection show with winning records.

"Robert and Louis just started off so slow in the first half, that in the second half they wanted to show what kind of players they are", MI interim coach Brian Ellerbe said. Jaren Jackson Jr. added 13 and Cassius Winston had 11, but they only crossed into double figures with the MI band revving the Maize and Blue faithful at Madison Square Garden with yet another version of "Hail To The Victors".

To be a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, according to Coach Gene Keady, a team needs to have two or three National Basketball Association players. There were two scrums after hard fouls, a technical foul was called against the Spartans' forward Nick Ward and referee Gene Steratore - yeah, the guy who led the officiating crew at the Super Bowl - lectured both Tom Izzo of Michigan State and Beilein after the nonsense. "I think that's part of the success in the second half". Wagner got going and the Wolverines lit up the Spartans' defense, hitting 12 of 18 shots from the field and making 20 of 27 free throws in the final 20 minutes.

Michigan State would get within two points a couple of times and was within 50-47 when Bridges hit a 3-pointer with 8:28 to go.

Abdur Rahkman talked about the energy the crowd provided. "We didn't come here to beat Michigan State". Michigan is playing its best ball right now after knocking out top-seeded Michigan State in the other semi Saturday.

"My hometown of (Washington) D.C. where it was a year ago, it didn't feel like there was the same energy in the building or as good a turnout". No. 2 seed Ohio State swept No. 7 seed Michigan State, which means No. 3 seed Michigan will travel to Columbus next weekend for a single elimination game.

MI and Purdue face off for the Big Ten Tournament Championship today at 4:30 p.m. ET. Purdue is projected as a No. 2 seed right now, while MI is currently a No. 3 seed in our latest Bracketology.

Janay Morton led the Huskers with 15 points and was the only player scoring in double figures.

The Boilermakers will be making their third appearance in the Big Ten championship since the tournament started in 1998. Those games are set for March 10th, with the highest remaining seed hosting the championship game one week later.

Wisconsin had built narrow leads in the first half and a few minutes after halftime.

It was over when: A 3-pointer by Michigan State's Matt McQuaid with 3:22 left cut Michigan's lead to 59-54.

Edwards made back-to-back 3s to make it 74-56 with 3:41 left and Purdue was on its way to play for a title. The sophomore faced an array of defenders, including the 6-foot-6, 220-pound Nojel Eastern, 5-10 P.J.

"Well, I'm an optimist", Penn State coach Patrick Chambers said.

The Boilermakers swept the regular season series with MI, winning two close games over the Wolverines.

Purdue has a similar four-out attack around senior center Isaac Haas. A night after giving up 17 offensive boards to Rutgers, the Boilermakers allowed 16 rebounds to Penn State. NEW YORK (AP) Purdue threw a little of everything at Penn State star Tony Carr, the Big Ten's leading scorer. The Nittany Lions led much of the way, but Edwards made a 3 for Purdue with 2 seconds left in the half to send the Boilermakers to the break ahead 33-31. "But we still had a goal of winning a Big Ten championship on our list before the season started and we put ourselves in position to be able to do that tomorrow".
