Michigan-Oklahoma State Prediction: Best Matchup of the First Round

Alyssa BaileyMar 18, 2017

MI sealed it at the free-throw line, though Oklahoma State finished the game with a buzzer-beating 3-pointer.

But the Wolverines clawed back to take a 70-64 lead with 9:00 to play. The best 3-point shooting teams in the country average 11 or 12 made field goals from long range per game, and the Wolverines just dropped 16 (setting a new school record) on Oklahoma State to edge out a one-point win.

No. 2 Louisville 78, No. 15 Jacksonville State 65: Mangok Mathiang scored 18 points and Deng Adel added 16 Friday to help second-seeded Louisville pull away from Jacksonville State 78-63 in the first round of the Midwest Regional.

While many would say, well, that's hip-hop, Remy would have preferred if they could have come together a long time ago. She also threw a little shade Remy's way, writing, "If she was f*cking him right she'd be too exhausted to beef".

As Underwood said - and repeated several times - the game's changing. Each time I went there, I scored nearly 30-plus points.

Evans finished with 23 points, 12 assists and seven rebounds. Coming out of Flint, Michigan, the 5-star recruit has proven in less than a complete season that he deserves all the looks from the National Basketball Association that he can get. Jalen Rose scored 25 points and corralled 11 rebounds for the Wolverines. The Aggies smelled upset early, were shooting unusually well and led at halftime, but the Bears blew it open with a 53-point second half, switching its defense along the way and attacking the rim. Evans was good, too, no doubt about it, but Walton was better. It all starts with taking on a Miami team that has been up and down a bit this season, right now they are in a down time despite making the tournament.

OSU again showed why it was one of the best offensive teams in the tournament, converting a layup and a timely second chance triple from Leyton Hammonds to make it 76-73.

Duncan Robinson finished with eight points off the bench, but he struggled at the free-throw line, missing twice on the front-end of a 1-and-1. The star guard missed a critical front end of a 1-and-1, and Walton made it hurt with a conversion in the lane for an 86-79 lead. Michigan State likes to get out and run, but they have been able to grind out wins against similar teams like Wisconsin and Northwestern.

But with 10 seconds left, Walton nailed a pair of free throws to put MI up by four, and with 3.7 seconds left, Wilson converted a pair to seal it. Much narrower than a four seed versus a seven seed. Bridges averages 16.7 points and 8.3 rebounds while Ward scores 13.7 and grabs 6.5 rebounds.

The Cowboys only allowed five baskets inside the arc in the second half. MI had only four.

The emergence of Moe Wagner and D.J. Wilson are two of the biggest reasons MI is in the position they are in right now. The only disappointment is that it was played at such a high level that it's unfortunate that one of these teams, Oklahoma State in this case, has to be sent home after just one game.

OSU was flawless in 10 trips to the charity stripe in the opening half, but U-M held a distinct advantage in turnovers, committing just two while forcing eight as the Wolverines converted the miscues into 10 points.
