Fresh off a week and a half break, the No. 3 Michigan Wolverines (28-7, 13-5 B1G) will play the No. 14 Montana Grizzlies (26-7, 16-2 Big Sky) in Round One of the 2018 NCAA March Madness Tournament in Wichita, Kansas, tomorrow (Thursday) at 9:50 p.m.
Michigan is arguably the hottest team in the country and has won nine games in a row, capped off by a 75-66 victory over Purdue to claim a second Big Ten Tournament Championship in as many seasons.
It’s hard to bet against John Beilein’s bunch right now. ESPN’s Jay Bilas even has the Wolverines in his Final Four.
But Montana, despite its first appearance in the tournament since 2013, shouldn’t be overlooked.
The Grizzlies stumbled to a 5-4 record to open the regular season in November but really turned it on the rest of the way. They went on a 21-3 run to close the year and are on a six game winning streak.
