Dienhart: Could three B1G teams reach Final Four?

It wasn’t always easy, it wasn’t always pretty, but No. 2 Michigan, No. 2 Wisconsin and No. 4 Michigan State all took care of business in their opening two games and have advanced to the Sweet 16. Well, it was easy for Michigan, which dispatched No. 15 Wofford in the second round and then topped No. 7 Texas in the third round.

Video: One year later, Trey Burke does it again

Michigan basketball fans will never forget that memorable shot Trey Burke hit in the last year’s NCAA Tournament win over Kansas in the Sweet 16. Trailing by three points with four seconds remaining in the game, the Big Ten Player of the Year drained a 30-footer to send the game into overtime. Burke scored all 23 of his points in the second half and overtime, including that incredible 3-point shot, as Michigan rallied to beat Kansas 87-85 and advance to the Elite Eight. Well, ladies and gentlemen, March Madness is back, and so is Trey Burke. Now a rookie with

Bombs away! Michigan headed to Sweet 16 - again

It wasn’t really that long ago when Michigan missed the NCAA tournament on a regular basis. From 1999-2008, in fact, it never went dancing. Now, the Wolverines have become one of the premier programs in the nation. John Beilein put another brick in the foundation of this power with a 79-65 win over No. 7 Texas today in a third-round game. It’s one more step toward Michigan’s goal: The Final Four and national championship. Up next is a game vs. the winner of No. 11 Tennessee/No. 14 Mercer. And, like in so many other games this season, the Wolverines rode

Michigan holds off Texas, 79-65, advances to Sweet 16

(AP) Nik Stauskas and Michigan figured out the best way to overcome Texas’ advantage inside. Just keeping hitting from long range. Stauskas made four of Michigan’s 14 3-pointers, and the Wolverines beat the Longhorns 79-65 on Saturday to advance to the NCAA tournament’s Sweet 16 for the second straight year. Stauskas finished with 17 points and eight assists as Michigan (27-8) moved on to next week’s Midwest Regional semifinals in Indianapolis. The second-seeded Wolverines will face the winner of Sunday’s Mercer-Tennessee game. [ AP RECAP | BOX | PLAY-BY-PLAY | BRACKET | DIENHART | SCOREBOARD ] HIGHLIGHT: @umichbball puts on

Dienhart: Four thoughts on today's games

It’s a big day for the Big Ten, as No. 2 Michigan, No. 2 Wisconsin and No. 4 Michigan State (I still can’t believe Sparty is a No. 4!) look to punch their ticket for the Sweet 16. Here are four thoughts on today’s games: Wisconsin vs. Oregon (7:45); Michigan State vs. Harvard (8:40). Michigan took down Texas in the first game. [ MORE: Get all of Dienhart’s 2014 NCAA tournament coverage ] 1. Michigan State obviously can’t expect Adreian Payne to go off for over 40 points today when it meets No. 12 Harvard. But, he probably can, given

Three teams and three games. That’s what it has come down to for the Big Ten on the opening weekend of the NCAA tournament. [ MORE: Dienhart: Thursday was a success for the Big Ten ] No. 2 Michigan will play No. 7 Texas. No. 2 Wisconsin will play No. 7 Oregon. No. 4 Michigan State will play No. 12 Harvard. These clearly are the three best teams in the conference. They are supposed to be here, primed to play for a spot in next week’s Sweet 16. And, frankly, they all should win their game on Saturday and advance.

Big Ten Geeks: Defense on Day One

Ohio State dropped a tight one against an in-state “Little Brother,” which had to make the loss all the more frustrating. There wasn’t anything especially unique about this loss—once again, Ohio State’s offense stalled out when it had to play in the half-court. The outside shooting was tepid (3 of 12 on 3s), and the ballhandling was suspect (the Buckeyes turned it over on 21 percent of their possessions; Aaron Craft and LaQuinton Ross each had five of their own). And on the 27 occasions when Ohio State had an opportunity to rebound one of its frequent misses, Thad Matta’s

Dienhart: Thursday was a success for the Big Ten

The first full-fledged day of NCAA tournament action was a success for the Big Ten. Yes, No. 11 Iowa lost a play-in game to No. 11 Tennessee on Wednesday. And No. 6 Ohio State fell to No. 11 Dayton today. But neither loss was a stunner. But the fact the defeats came early in the tourney, it caught the attention of critics. No matter, the Big Ten’s “Big Three” opened with victories today. And they looked good doing it. [ MORE: Dienhart: Ohio State’s elimination no surprise ] No. 2 Wisconsin destroyed No. 15 American.

Michigan tops Wofford in NCAA Tourney opener

Jordan Morgan notched a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds as Michigan defeated Wofford 57-40 on Thursday night in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The Wolverines (26-8) capitalized on their decisive edge in athleticism on the undersized Terriers (20-13) but still had some nervous moments after missing 15 of their first 18 shots in the second half. Karl Cochran’s 3-pointer with 9:25 left whittled an 18-point deficit to 40-33. But the Wolverines regrouped, and Caris LeVert’s 3 with 4:17 left gave them a 15-point lead to deflate Wofford’s dreams of an upset. Nik Stauskas had 15 points
